30th JUNE 2017 - Grayshott folk club
"A huge “Thank You” to you for your tireless efforts to get the sound right for us again at Grayshott Folk Club last night and for your playing and singing. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to The Charcoal Burners and to Low Lily, they both sounded great. It was a fitting way to end our season with both local and international musicians represented and it demonstrated that even in these challenging times, music has no barriers and has the ability to unify. The audience applause was as loud and generous as I’ve heard it in almost seven years of Grayshott Folk Club’s existence. What they may have lacked in numbers, they more than made up for with their clapping!
I hope you enjoyed yourself, despite having to work so hard and for so long. I don’t know about you but my mind buzzes for hours when I get home after a gig so I rarely sleep well. In the end, it all worked out really well.........I can’t tell you what a relief it was seeing that Low Lily had already arrived at the Club after I had been waiting for more than 45 minutes at the top of Hill Road for them to appear. I don’t know how they snuck past me without me seeing them.......
Please pass on my thanks to Martin, Steve and Art. You’ve got a great band there and I hope you get the gigs you deserve after all your hard work. I also hope the new EP is well received and that you sell shed loads of them.
Keep in touch and I hope to see you again soon".
The Charcoal Burners are supporting Low Lily (www.lowlily.com) from Vermont on their UK tour at Grayshott Social Club (www.grayshottfolkclub.co.uk).
