At one time Brighton had a folk club every day of the week - and all the now-famous names made an appearance. Essential to this thriving scene was the quality of the local resident singers and many’s the time that the likes of Tom Paxton had to work their socks off to trump the opening acts by the likes of this month’s guest TIM BROADBENT, Brighton born & bred (well Hove, actually.)
His precocious talents soon took him all round the world where his lightning-fast fingerpicking were matched only by his quickfire banter. Now resident in France he a fixture on the acoustic music scene across mainland Europe together with a superb fiddler from his adopted country, CHRISTIAN FROMENTIN.
With some great songs of his own plus an eclectic choice of the best of the rest theirs is great package of great musicianship and humour.
