Magical musical moments
Hello folks … sorry this post has been such a long time coming … but here’s a little reminder of the wonderful Folk at the Froize we experienced in November …
I have to admit … I had a ‘moment’ that Sunday evening … the tears started to well up … shivers ran down my spine and I felt totally overwhelmed by the beauty of what I was hearing ( seriously … this only happens to me at very special moments ) … Hattie’s voice was simply stunning. It flowed out with such ease, and her songs were so well crafted, I felt very honoured to have been witnessing such a pro perform. The cello accompaniment provided by Asha was the perfect back drop to her songs. I particularly enjoyed her tales of song inspiration which were delivered in a very laid back fashion. We were also treated to her Christmas single ‘Turn on the lights’ (video above) which was very poignant (yet another tearful moment … perhaps it’s an age thing? ) I think we can all agree (with no doubt ) that Hattie is destined for great things and we wish her every success for the future. We feel very humbled that she came to perform at our little ‘doo’ in the country!
And of course, let’s not forget the lovely performance at the start of the evening by local, incredibly young and talented songwriter,Fern Teather , who sang tracks from her wonderful debut album ‘Hiding in the dark’ ( you can buy it here folks ), accompanied by everyones favourite drummer Sam ‘bongo boy’ Thurlow. Fern also played her own Christmas creation ‘ Every Christmas ‘ which set off all the tingly festive feelings ( prematurely of course because it was November … but there’s nothing wrong with that ).
And then there was the fooooood … omg … what can I say … David and Louise, you did it again 🙂 a marvellous feast that made me so full I could pop ( and I felt very lucky to go home with my own special stash of delicious honey sesame sausages … (thanks again louise …you’re my favourite .. don’t tell David) )
We’re developing quite a lovely folksy and foody family down at the Froize which we hope will only grow and grow. We’ve got some wonderful acts lined up for you in 2016. Don’t miss our Christmas special on the 20th of December featuring the Broadside Boys , Tilly Dalglish and some weird ole couple called Honey & The Bear … ( they let any ole riff raff in these days ) 🙂 Tickets are on sale NOW and they are selling out fast folks so get in quick! Call David on 01394 450282.
See you there 🙂
