10 May 19 Harry Browns CD release "One More Day"
location: Moorend Spout 8pm
Harry Browns CD release "One More Day"

Rousing songs of the sea, served with zest and spicy harmonies

The Harry Browns of Bristol launch their latest CD “One More Day”

Fri 10 May 8pm at the Moorend Spout, Nailsea.

The Harry Browns for Bristol have been singing shanties and songs of the sea for over thirty years at festivals up and down the land and across Europe. Renown for their sense of fun and mischief and their great voices and harmonies they love to bring stories and traditions of the sea to life.

Such is their notoriety they recently appeared on BBC’s Flog It where the whole group were sold as antique relics for just 50 pence!

One More Day is their latest CD. It is a collection of mainly traditional shanties sung with gusto and the occasional accompaniment of fiddle and guitar.

The last time the Harries sung at the Moorend Spout was to launch their previous CD with their close friend Fred Wedlock providing support. Fred sadly died in 2010.

The evening is in aid of Nailsea Memory Café, supporting people with dementia and their carers. Like most people, members of the Harry Browns have been affected by close relatives who have had dementia.

A £5 donation can be made on the door but to guarantee admission donations can be made online: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/nailsea-tithe-barn-trust

22 Nov 19 The Tannahill Weavers
location: Tithe Barn 8pm

The Tannahill Weavers

The Tannahill Weavers are a band which performs traditional Scottish music. Releasing their first album in 1976, they became notable for being one of the first popular bands to incorporate the sound of the Great Highland Bagpipe in an ensemble setting, and in doing so helped to change the sound of Scottish traditional music. In 2011 the band were inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame.

The band was formed in 1968 and practiced in a back room of the McKay family's rented council house at 41 St. Ninian's Road, Hunterhill, Paisley. The band first performed at St. Peter's Folk Club, Glenburn, Paisley which was run by Pat Doherty, father of Weavers' founding member Neil Doherty.

They are named after Scottish poet Robert Tannahill, known as the 'Weaver Poet,' and have recorded several of his songs.
