Saturday 7th December 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm£5
An evening with Angela McCarron & Richard Purves + floorspots.
Never mind the Pre-Christmas rush we’ve put together an evening of mellow cheeriness with Angela McCarron & Richard Purves – 2 fine performers from the local folk & acoustic music circuit with personal styles perfectly suited to the intimacy of the OLC hall.
It’s a bargain at £5 on the door & they’ll also be opportunities for floor spots from musicians & poets to start the evening & help set the scene, not forgetting the CAMRA award winning bar with drinks on sale at club prices which will open before the show,
SE London based singer-songwriter Angela McCarron has been entrancing audiences since she 1st burst on to the Eltham Folkmob scene some half a dozen years ago. with her happy/sad, wistful, ‘heart on her sleeve’ songs. Since then Angela has been growing in confidence as a performer & honing of her songwriting capabilities building up an impressive fan base in the process. As well as self penned songs they’ll be a few popular covers & some personal favourites including for good measure.
When we booked Angela & asked who she would like to play a support set it didn’t take her long to say Richard Purves. In recent years he has been dividing his time between a long time home on the Isle of Wight & our neck of the woods. area. His easy going fingerpicking guitar style & good natured approach to music & life has made him a firm favourite at local folk clubs & open mics. Richard’s choice of material reflects his love of the laid back popular folk of the 60’s & 70’s.. such as John Denver, Tom Paxton, Ralph McTell, James Taylor. Fred Neil, Pete Seeger ..& yes he does do some Dylan & the Beatles too..In fact plenty of familiar songs to enjoy with choruses you’ll find yourself singing along with.
