Friday 20 September 2019 8pm - Geoff Lakeman & Rob Murch - Parish Hall, Meavy PL20 6PJ
The “ Titan of Twang “ and the “ Concertina Crooner” team up in a dynamic new duo. Geoff has a rich, melodic voice and teases English and Irish folk, Americana and jazz songs out of his rare vintage Crane duet concertina. Rob brings the “ wow factor” to the banjo, with his unique, punchy fingerstyle playing. Both live on Dartmoor, so it was inevitable they’d gang-up musically. Expect self-written and West Country songs, rattling folk tunes and foot-stomping ragtime and cakewalk riffs. Rob’s percussive finger-ballet up and down the fret board of his 100 year-old instrument is mesmerising. He’s revered throughout the UK for his long-time work with the renowned Dartmoor Pixie Band and The Watch trio. The duo’s relaxed yet sparkling stage presence together is bubbling with the “feel -good” factor. £10. Licensed bar. Full details etc. www.meavy.org.uk/events.htm.
