'Folk Treble' returns to the Old Baptist Chapel
By David Wood
Three Worcestershire-based songwriters come together to share the stage for an evening of original, contemporary folk at Tewkesbury's atmospheric Old Baptist Chapel.
Colin Pitts, Mike Weaver and Charlie Williams will be appearing at the historic venue on Saturday 7th October at 7.45pm.
Colin Pitts first performed in folk clubs while a student in Swansea in the late '60s, and became very popular in Midlands folk circles in the first half of the 1970s. He has played all over the UK and has appeared on many local radio shows and BBC Radio 2. A serious illness caused a reduction in shows for a while, but Colin kept writing and is now performing live better than ever.
Mike Weaver is a singer-songwriter originally from Cheltenham, but now living in Worcestershire. He is a writer and publishing designer by day and an acoustic performer by night, presenting his own melodic songs which draw upon both contemporary and traditional influences. After a break of over 20 years, Mike returned to songwriting and performing in 2013. Since his 'comeback' he has played at a variety of events across southern England and the Midlands, opening for many well known-artists as well as performing his own solo gigs and playing live on folk radio shows.
Charlie Williams is a singer-songwriter from Worcester. His Americana-flavoured songs have seen airplay on BBC Hereford & Worcester and he can often be heard around the folk and open mic scene of his home town. Many of his songs are storytelling ballads set in his county, from tragic tales in the Malvern Hills to the impact of the English Civil War on ordinary people. Others are lyrical ruminations on life, love and random experience. Charlie is also a successful novelist.
Doors open at 7.15pm for a performance starting at 7.45pm. Tickets are £10 in advance from https://www.wegottickets.com/event/585438/ or locally from the John Moore Museum, Church Street, Tewkesbury.
