Maggie Boyle and Paul Downes in Southport

Maggie Boyle
Sunday's guest singer at the Bothy is Maggie Boyle, accompanied by guitarist Paul Downes. Maggie is well-known as a solo singer and as a member of the wonderful all-woman vocal group Grace Notes; she is no stranger to the Bothy. She is London-born of Irish descent, and as the late Bert Jansch said of her singing"Maggie has a spell-binding, intoxicating quality in her voice which is extremely distinctive - must be the Irish in her.....a rare thing in today's music world." Paul Downes is a highly regarded guitarist, who modestly prefers to present himself as a singer of songs; he has performed with artists such as Phil BeerThe Arizona Smoke RevuePete Seeger and, currently, The Joyce Gang.

They will will be playing this Sunday 17 March at the Bothy Folk Club, Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. The music begins at 8.00 p.m., and you can buy tickets on-lineThe venue sells real ale, Thwaites Wainwright.
