SPECIAL GUESTS

RACHEL AND GARY


Our first Sesion plus Guests at this venue will welcome old friends and club members Gary and Rachel Rodwell. Rachel is looking forwards to meeting up with everyone again. From returning to the Folk Scene during our Seven Stars days, Rachel has gone forward, meeting, and marrying a fellow musician and song writer and later she joined Larkspur. Tonight they will be performing different material from their own repertoirre. It will be a fairly informal evening with the guest performance mixing in with the session.. unless we are overwhelmed with supporters and need to move into the hall . It is also the night before Hallow'een so the decorations will be up. Theme for the session players is Spooky Songs.
