Two special concerts this week

Pete Coe and the Peacemakers ~ double bill in Liverpool
Pete Coe's website describes him as "a one man folk industry". He is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, broadcaster, dance caller, teacher, and folk club organiser. Always worth seeing ~ wonderful music & a great stage presence.

The Peacemakers have been called "Liverpool's own English folk/world beat orchestra". They make a big sound that gets feet tapping and brings a smile to your face.

This unique double bill is on at the Casa, Hope Street, Liverpool (near the Philharmonic pub) this Saturday 20th November at 8.00 pm. Admission £6 (£4 concessions). Proceeds to the George Strattan Memorial Scholarship and Merseyside CND.

Dave Hockley Tribute Night ~ Southport
The annual Dave Hockley Tribute Night takes place this Friday 19th November from 7.00 pm with local artists Shot in the Dark, Speechless, The Runnies and Nev Grundy (who?) at St Teresa's Social Club, Upper Aughton Road, Southport. Small admission charge - all proceeds to Queenscourt Hospice, where Dave spent his last days in 2008. Dave was a prolific song-writer, poet and a friend of many on the Southport music scene ~ some of his original songs will be performed. Website dedicated to Dave - it's slightly out of date.
