Martin Pearson & Barbara Sanders @ The Loaded Dog
8PM, doors open 7.40pm, Saturday 25th November, 2017

Martin is back for his annual appearance @ The Dog taking the spot normally filled by the late & much lamented Danny Spooner. As Martin said since I seem to have acquired a grey beard, I'm going to spread the rumour that Danny left it to me in his will. hehe

Of course no one can replace Danny, so Martin will do his usual material & will have you rolling in the aisles and then throw in something serious when you least expect it with songs about anything from Hobbits to Japanese whaling.

support from Barbara Sanders

Barbara has sung all her life singing silly songs her father taught her, bastardising the school anthem and then getting serious by toying idly with the classical repertoire. In the late 90s and early naughties she focussed on cappella singing in groups such as Vox Humana and Echolalia until a busy life intervened. In the last few years she has trod the boards of musical theatre but recently found herself back at the folk hearth. She sings folk songs from England, Ireland and the US including some of enchanting beauty. Come along for a lot of fun!
