Topic Newsletter Archive

TOPIC FOLK CLUB, BRADFORD

At the Bradford Irish Club, Rebecca Street, BD1 2RX                    a wheelchair-friendly venue

Newsletter No. 108 - March 2011

Welcome to the March 2011 edition of the Topic newsletter. After a fabulous February with great performances by Tom Kitching & Gren Bartley, Swarb and Lester Simpson we are looking forward to a memorable March which features visits from Jez Lowe, Lucy Ward and Darren Poyzer and friends, as well as two nights where the floor will be open to anyone who wishes to perform - our usual 'first Thursday' Singers & Musicians night and a St Patrick Special Open Mic on Wednesday 16th March.

If you are keen on social networking why not join us on Facebook where you will receive a reminder of guest nights and, if you wish, will also be able to chat with the club organisers and existing friends. Hope to see you there!

Also don't forget to visit our website where you will find lots of information and our page listing artists who have appeared at the club since 1960 - some happy memories there for many I would imagine! 

Look forward to seeing you soon! The next newsletter will be sent out around 10 April with details of performances by Tom Bliss & Phil Wilcox, Jinski and Jason McNiff.

All music starts at 8.30 except where indicated

March 3  
Singers and Musicians  Entry Free  (8.15 start)
A chance for anyone to come to sing, play or just listen!

March 10
Jez Lowe   6/5
An acclaimed artist from the north east of England, Jez Lowe needs no introduction to many audiences, including this one - he's been 12 times since his first appearance in 1982.

For those new to the folk scene suffice it to say that Jez has been a purveyor of the finest quality folk songs and entertaining live performances for many years now and has gathered a loyal mass of fans across the world. His recent CD 'Wotcheor!' is the latest addition to a fine body of recorded work and has received enthusiastic reviews in the music press. An evening with Jez Lowe is always a very special event and we would recommend that you get down early for this night!

March 16
St Patrick's Special (Wednesday Night)  Entry Free
A special 'open house' night as part of the Irish Club celebrations - come down and join our friends at the Irish Club for a great night of songs and tunes. Guinness optional! But please note this is on the Wednesday night, not Thursday.

March 24
Lucy Ward     6/5
Lucy Ward, a proud Derbyshire lass, plays guitar and has recently taken up the concertina; however she considers her voice to be her first instrument. She has the ability to still an audience with the strength and purity of her voice, which she uses to great effect on the unaccompanied songs that sprinkle her set. Lucy also has a talent for taking songs and investing them with passion and feeling in order to bring about refreshed appreciation from her audiences. Perhaps more important than any of this, though, is that she strikes up an immediate rapport with the audience who remain in the palm of her hand for the whole of her performance. Little wonder then that she was a finalist in the BBC Young Folk Award 2009 – prepare to be entranced!

March 31
Darren Poyzer & Friends   6/5
A Singer and songwriter who combines loving emotion with socio-politics, humour and charisma, Darren Poyzer has starred alongside many great contemporaries to wide and outstanding acclaim. Raised on comedy, performance poetry and an understanding family, he turns the angst of a Thatcher-era teenager into a burst of musical theatre, using little more than voice and acoustic guitar. Working as a special needs music teacher by day has given his songs, stories and performance a new edge and vitality.

Darren works with a wide variety of excellent musicians and some of them will be with him at the Topic tonight to reinforce the message and beauty in his songs. 

April 07
Singers & Musicians  Entry Free  (8.15 start)
Another chance to play, sing or just listen

Best Wishes

Joe Grint
