FOLK ON THE PIER
SKAGEN FOLK FESTIVAL
NEW FOREST FOLK FESTIVAL
SO5 6EE [UK]
SHREWSBURY FOLK FESTIVAL
SOUTH DOWNS FOLK FESTIVAL
Bognor Regis [UK]
Alan Prosser’s weird and wonderful new solo album 5/4AP is now available from our online shop and from the band at shows.
Guitar buffs will catch the allusion and homage to Davy Graham’s ground-breaking EP “3/4 AD” with Alexis Korner from 1962. Alan’s is a full-length 10-track CD however, a mixture of songs and instrumentals entirely in 5-time! Remarkable how natural that sounds after a track or two….

JAZZ MANN FEATURES
Ian Mann enjoys two very different albums recorded in 2018 by the Italian born, London based saxophonist and composer Tommaso Starace.
Ian Mann is educated and entertained by the first date of a tour celebrating the life and music of trumpeter Dizzy Reece performed by pianist Trevor Watkis and a stellar international quintet.
