Date: Wednesday 30th May 2018
Carolyn Robson and Iris Bishop
Carolyn Robson is a professional singer and musician specialising in traditional folk song and dance. Her extensive repertoire includes songs from her native Northumberland and Scotland, as well as other parts of the British Isles.
She will be accompanied by Iris Bishop, regarded by many as one of the finest players of the Duet Concertina. We are hoping that Carolyn will also offer a singing workshop for folk club members.

Penzance Folk Club
Started at the Admiral Benbow pub in Penzance in early 2008 by Alan & Linda Collins, we continue to run it with welcome help from a number of members and performers.
The club runs alternate Wednesdays from 8.30pm; most evenings are "round the room" sessions where everyone has an opportunity to sing, play a tune or tell a story (there is no obligation to perform and audience are equally welcome).
As one might expect, there is an emphasis on Cornish tunes, and most of the tunes come with an invitation to all musicians to join in. When the tune is linked to a Cornish dance, it is not unusual for a few members to take to the (limited) floor space!
Round the room sessions are free entry, but we always run a raffle which raises funds to subsidise our guest nights.
