June 7th - The Blackwater String Band

Yet another collaboration between experienced local musicians, The Blackwater String Band have a multi-instrumental line-up and have an authentic bluegrass / old timey sound, playing, as Dermot Watson, their lead vocalist describes as, "standards and original tunes on time honoured themes - namely love, loss, death and drinking."

On a more sombre note we are sad to report the death of Pete Cartlidge, one of the founder members of our session, who lost his battle with cancer earlier this month.
