Up-coming Events

I've been gathering together a few flyers of events that look interesting.
Last week at the acoustic session at the Baskie, Valeryan brought in a poster for an event she's appearing at - A Night of Acoustic Music presented by the Friends of the Crown, Dilwyn. The Crown is owned by the parish council, who bought it when it was threatened with closure a few years ago. It's now run as a tenanted free house, with real ale, and it was built as a coaching inn in the seventeenth century. It's also very much a community pub, in the heart of the village.
Performing there on Thursday 22nd June will be Autistry (Gracie and Gelan Swift), Dan Nichol (folk and American traditional music), Mice in a Matchbox (Sally Stamford and Jim Rolt, recently back from sailing round the Caribbean) and Valeryan (former lead singer with the Settlers). Mice in a Matchbox and Valeryan regularly come to the Baskerville acoustic sessions, so if the two performers I don't know are up to those standards, it's going to be a good night.

Then on Saturday 24th June there's the Stoked Summer Feast at Lower House Farm, Longtown. It's billed as a celebration of farming, food and fire, with wood fired cookery, cocktails, and local ale and cider bar as well as the feast - and they have overnight camping with breakfast available.

I probably won't be able to get to either of those, but I will be able to get to Hereford on 1st July for the annual Hereford History Day on Castle Green. This year Historia Normannis will be there, so lots of medieval stuff going on (what a pity I've grown out of my medieval costumes!)

Some years, Hereford History Day is on the same weekend as Beer on the Wye, but this year Beer on the Wye is on the weekend of the 8th July - so I won't be turning up at the bar in any sort of odd costume this year!
I just hope the weather is good.
