First Bothy guests of 2011

Trio Threlfall are the first guests of the year at the Bothy Folk Club this Sunday, making a return visit to the club.  They consist of sisters Jane and Amanda Threlfall with Roger Edwards and are noted mostly for their traditional material. As a Cheltenham Folk Festival reviewer wrote: "Trio Threlfall opened the evening with an exquisite set, their faultless harmonies showing why they are such welcome and frequent visitors to the festival."

They have three albums under their belt as a group, and Mike Harding of BBC Radio 2 said of their most recent CD, Sweet Nightingale: "Terrific songs and playing and really tight, unfussy arrangements. The girls are in great voice and the accompaniments are brilliant!" Having seen them myself at the Bothy on previous occasions, I tend to agree with this enthusiastic view.

The Bothy meets at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS, this Sunday 16th January at 8.00pm. Tickets available on the door or on line here. The venue sells Thwaites real ale.
