The band features Tom Kitching on fiddle & mandolin, Howard Jones on melodeon anglo concertina, hammered dulcimer and recorder, Steve Hodgskiss on piano and English concertina, Peter Crowther on bass guitar and keyboard and Sean Bechhofer on guitar.
Meanwhile, the concert in the Walter Rose Room will start at 8.40pm with a short spot from compere, Kitty Vernon, followed by a 20 minute spot from Joe Allen and Friends and then two 45 minutes spots from the main guest of the evening, Jeff Warner.
Doors open 7.15pm, dancing starts at 8pm. and an admission charge of £11, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both! The " House Full " sign only goes up rarely as the village hall is a large space, but if you are concerned about gaining admission on the evening, just email or telephone John Heydon and he will reserve tickets for you on the door.
