A bit late I know, but a reminder that Rich Simcock's acoustic open mike night, called Place To Be, takes place this evening upstairs in the Mount Pleasant in Manchester Road, Southport. Free to get in, and performing is strictly optional. Tetley cask bitter is the real ale.
Advance notice: Richard has booked Ewan McLennan for a return gig at the same venue. I went to see him last time, and he was excellent. Since his last appearance here, he has gone on to win the prestigious Horizon Award at the BBC Radio 2 folk awards, and is going from strength to strength.
That will also be upstairs in the Mount Pleasant on Thursday 21 April 2011 at 8.00pm. Tickets are £7-50. Contact for information and tickets: Richard on 07801 849635 or email him - click here.
