Tuesday 27th November 2018 at 8.00pm:

Our Pre-Christmas Concert with - FB Pocket Orchestra

at The Stable Bar, The Drax Arms, Bere Regis BH20 7HH

A really great band - and FREE ENTRY !!

The FB Pocket Orchestra takes its listeners back to the hot jazz, blues, ragtime & popular dances of the 1920/30s & earlier.

The members originally began playing 
together in various FB Music & Media 
projects and officially began playing as 
The FB Pocket Orchestra in 2012.



Support is from the delightful Damian Clark

In his own words:

"His musical mission is to showcase the Dulcimer and Hurdy Gurdy, and to make them appeal to a wider audience than the folk scene, especially for younger ears. This can also be seen  in his artwork .  He likes to challenge pre-conceptions in music  and art, to illustrate new thoughts, to encourage and inspire."

His solo concerts are played on the beautiful hammer dulcimer and hurdy gurdy,  along with unaccompanied songs that he encourages audiences to sing along to.  He often performs at community events where he introduces audiences to these rare and delightful instruments. He also play historical events and at themed weddings.

Regretfully, Richard and I have decided to step down from running the Drax Arms Folk Night. We've thoroughly enjoyed organising it and meeting all the wonderful musicians and our lovely audience but, as other things loom large on our horizon, we've decided to hand it on.

And it will be in very safe and capable hands as Pip and Nic will be at the helm from January 2019 onwards. We hope that you will continue to support them with the same enthusiasm and generosity that we've experienced since we started the venture a few years ago.

One thing to note is that from January 2019 the club will meet on the THIRD Tuesday of every month instead of the last one, in the Stable Bar from 8.00 pm onwards.

For now though, we have the Xmas concert with the FB POCKET ORCHESTRA on Tuesday 27th November (admission free) We hope to see you there. Lesley xxxx
