Pete Morton and Roger Wilson in Southport

Pete Morton and Roger Wilsonthis is a new project of traditional songs, tunes and dance from two experienced and respected folk performers, both of whom have appeared at the Bothy before, although not as a duo. From the big ballads to the finest tunes, from gentle love songs to the bawdy, Pete and Roger come together to share their love of the tradition, playing, singing and dancing their favourites from both the British Isles and North America with two fine voices, a fiddle, harmonica, guitars, a broomstick and a dustpan and brush! (so it says here anyway)

I've seen them separately and rate both highly. What this collaboration is like I've no idea, but I can't see that it will be anything less than thoroughly entertaining, and probably rather more.

They're on this Sunday 24 November at the Bothy, which meets at the Park Golf Club, Park Rd West, Southport, PR9 0JS. Thwaites cask ale. 8.00pm start. On-line tickets.

  1. Sounds great, although I notice that the online booking page promises "high-energy modern folk writing" - somebody's going to be disappointed.

  2. I hope not. I think that refers to the Pete Morton side of the partnership.
