Thursday 24th January 2019 - THE ARGENTA TRIO - at Faversham Music Club, The Assembly Rooms

FAVERSHAM MUSIC CLUB
7:30pm to 10:00pm
Thursday Series

Argenta Trio
Debussy Piano Trio in G major
Ravel Piano Trio
Vasks Plainscapes
Shostakovich Piano Trio no. 1 in C minor

The intensely beautiful trios by contemporaries Ravel and Debussy contrast with the sharply mercurial trio of the sixteen-year-old Shostakovich. Pēteris Vask’s work is a version of one originally scored with choir: an extended meditation culminating in the miracle of the rebirth of nature as the sun rises and the birds sing in delight.

A combination of fine solo players the Argenta Trio formed in 2015 and has quickly established itself as a leading piano trio equally at home in classic repertoire and new works.

Wednesday 6th February 2019 - DAVE ELLIS & BOO HOWARD - at Faversham Folk Club, The Limes

FAVERSHAM FOLK CLUB
Dave Ellis & Boo Howard
7.30      Ticket Price £7 / £8

Dave Ellis came down from Liverpool for the London folk club scene in the 70’s. He released a solo album on Sonet records, which some consider to be a classic guitar record of its time and which gave him national exposure on the Old Grey Whistle Test and In Concert.
Dave became a regular at various London haunts such as the Marquee, the Roundhouse and the Lyceum and also played some higher profile gigs, opening for the Edgar Broughton Band at the Rainbow and Rod Stewart at Reading Festival.
In 1979 Dave formed his electric band ‘The Reactors’ which incorporated guitar, drums and keyboards with Boo Howard playing bass and handling most of the vocals.
The band was eventually trimmed down and developed into an electric duo (comprising Dave and Boo) which was renamed ‘Brave Lucy’, and the pair produced their only electric album ‘Snaps’ in 1996 under that name
In 1998 they combined Dave’s intricate guitar work with Boo’s mellow vocals to create something very different and entirely new in the folk and acoustic clubs. Their debut acoustic recording was ‘Maybe I Might Fall’ in 1999.
The songs are intelligently constructed, elegantly articulated and never less than entertaining. The mix is eclectic (from folk to jazz to blues to bluegrass) but the songs are at the heart of it all, served by imaginative and stylish arrangements and by the singing and playing of two seasoned, wholly in tune musicians.

Their CDs have a classy polished sound - testament to the pair’s familiarity with the recording process and of their ability to write and perform at a level every bit the equal of their major label peers.
Their live act has now been honed to perfection in the folk clubs where they have developed a large faithful following in the south of England.

Friday 8th February 2019 - THE LOST WEEKEND - at The Sun Inn

8.45

Formed in the spring of 1994, just as Britpop was making its impact. Inspired by the resurgence of this MOD based, high energy music, the Lost Weekend began by putting together a set of classic MOD tunes that influenced the whole Britpop scene. This provided an opportunity to mix the set with a rich variety of music, old and new, which we have exploited with great success ever since.

The set today is still constantly changing. With bands like the Kaiser Chiefs, Supergrass, Oasis and the Fratellis the evidence of a 40 year old influence is very apparent. Great news, for The Lost Weekend are always looking to expand on their huge back catalogue of stonking tunes.

The band line up still consists of 3 of the 4 original members, all of whom are passionate about the music they play. With a laid back approach, the emphasis is to play the songs that have, or will influence generations, songs that will get feet dancing and tunes that will have you humming hours after the gig is over.
