Impressed + Rik Lawson + Open Mic
Tuesday July 5 @ 6:40 pm - 9:00 pm
For the 1st Tuesday in July, It’s another fun-packed evening of folk & acoustic music at Orpington Liberal Club.
The finale will be a 50-minute set from ‘Impressed’, the fabulous Tonbridge-based duo of Roger Resch & Liz Randall, who perform sea songs, including shanties & also more reflective or humorous songs, from the traditional and contemporary sources.
They sing a cappella and accompany themselves on various instruments & are noted for their rousing chorus songs, inviting audience participation.
In support, there will be a 20-minute mid-evening showcase set from Rik Lawson starting at around 7.20.
Rik is a regular at Tonbridge Folk Club & also an Orpington Folk & Blues host.
He will be singing traditional folk songs & accompanying himself on Crane Concertina and Irish Bouzouki.
The rest of the evening will be Open Mic.
If you wish to perform, please come early or flag up your intentions in advance to avoid disappointment…we’re open to poets & very short storytellers in addition to singers & musicians ..& of course, an audience.
The CAMRA award-winning bar will be open from 18.15 its card payments only.
It’s Free entry for OLC Club members, with Non-Members paying a £1 charge for the use of facilities.
There will be a hat collection in cash for the performers with a suggested contribution of £5 per head.
