Music is a universal language. There are probably only a few cultures in the world who have not adorned their life with music of some kind. But if music pulls people together, then the ardent fans of different types of music can often seem to have nothing to say to each other. Classical, brass band, hip-hop, garage, blues, contemporary, jazz, electronic, rock and roll ska, (ska??) all have their aficionados. The list is endless and many people are very clear what they like and don't like.

One of the oldest categories of music may well be Folk, melodies and words that have been passed down through time, that were rarely written down but passed on from generation to generation. The songs and music often reflected rural themes as well as the perennial human condition of love and longing. Music moved out from the churches and a rich secular tradition was created. In England there were two eras of folk music revival, from 1890 to 1920, when much traditional music was written down for the first time, and then from 1945 to 1969, when singers like Ewan Macoll and A.L. Lloyd brought elements of industrial life and left — wing sentiments into the mix. In recent years, folk music has been enlivened by electronic instruments and the fusing of the traditional with other modern musical styles.

The point of all this potted history — thank you Wikipedia — is to remind you that, if you like good live music covering the whole gamut of both traditional and modern folk, then come along on Saturday evening (doors open at 7.00pm for 7.30pm start) to the Community Centre to hear Bandersnatch, an excellent local folk group who epitomise the very best of the genre. Lively, entertaining and exceedingly 'foot-taping', the evening will pass very pleasantly.

Tickets are £10 from the Post Office , from or on the door. There will of course be a bar for good folk music does slip down more easily with a pint. Unless you are very particular about the type of music you like, the prospect of a great evening is guaranteed.

Though I suspect there are no guarantees if you do like ska! (ska??)

We've all been enjoying the lovely, hot weather but the lack of rain and high demand for water means our reservoirs are now lower than we'd like them to be at this time of year.That's why a hosepipe ban will be introduced across the North West from5th August 2018. This means householders won't be allowed to use either a hosepipe or sprinkler as these use an incredible amount of...
