Folk Concert - Les Barker & Hicks & Goulbourn at Chesterfield Library
Music - Folk, Fri 9 Jan 2015
Chesterfield Visitor Information Centre
New Beetwell Street,
Also at this Venue
A double-header concert featuring two highly entertaining acts presented by Chesterfield Folk Club.
Les Barker writes and performs hilarious poems. He was an accountant before he became a professional idiot. He's written 85 books which sell in large numbers at his gigs because people don't quite believe what they've just heard. His poems have spawned a number of folk heroes: Jason and the Arguments, Cosmo the Fairly Accurate Knife Thrower, Captain Indecisive and Spot of the Antarctic, to name but two.
Hicks and Goulbourn have become an established act on the folk and acoustic music scene in the UK and abroad due to their easy manner on stage, a huge variety of musical styles, Lynn's pure vocals and of course Steve’s breathtaking guitar playing.
An evening not to be missed!
This event will be held in the Lecture Theatre within Chesterfield Library.
