For our third gig of 2021 at the Gorringe Park we have folk maestro Ben Paley.
Ben is very much folk royalty who has been described as “just about the best folk-fiddler of his generation” by fRoots magazine.
He has been playing fiddle music from America, Ireland, Sweden and wherever else since the age of six and has toured widely with father Tom Paley, The Long Hill Ramblers, Tab Hunter, The New Deal String Band and many others.
He also wrote Swedish Fiddle Music: An Anthology, which has become the standard work on the subject in English.
As before, there will be floor spots for those who want to sing a song, perform a tune or play the spoons.
This month, for a variety of reasons, we will be on the ground floor of the Gorringe Park, but otherwise all should be as usual!
Those who want to perform should come along at 7:30pm to put your name on the list.
Doors 7:30pm. Music starts at 8pm. Entry £5 on the door (cash only – no pre-booking, sorry!)
Upstairs at the Gorringe Park, 29 London Road, Tooting, SW17 9JR
