We visited Cramlington Folk Club for the first time about two and a half years ago, having called ahead to book a slot at the singers’ night. Now be warned, The Hind is a bit difficult to find first time round, (I now have a Sat Nav), so we got there mid-way through the first half and actually took the stage as penultimate act of the evening.
The thing about Steve is, when you first meet him, he doesn’t give the impression of being a virtuoso guitar player, HOWEVER, when people hear him launch forth and ‘do his thing’, there is typically a great dropping of jaws, followed by a lot of people who simultaneously declare to bin or burn their own guitars!
Steve had this effect at Cramlington and we were told afterwards that his performance even caused Margaret to stop her knitting!
We were invited to do a guest spot a couple of years ago and are now very excited about returning as guests for the second time on Tuesday 15th May as Cramlington Folk Club celebrate 40 years of existence.
