Double header special at folk club

The Troubadour Folk Club's next concert will be a double header special, featuring Shawn Lidster from Newfoundland and local band New York Public Library.

The special double feature concert will take place from 7pm on February 23 at the club's new venue, the St Luke's Church Hall, Woy Woy.

Club president, Mr Michael Fine, said the concert would be one of the club's best ones yet.

"Shawn hails from Newfoundland and brings a perfect mix of his heritage with Australiana charm to his mixed bag of Celtic alternative country blues," Mr Fine said.

"Shawn has had songs he has written and performed for the Prime Minister of Canada, the Premier of Newfoundland, Prince Charles and even had a song played on the famous Hockey Night in Canada.

"His Newfoundland album Legends, was added to the K-12 curriculum throughout Newfoundland and Labrador Schools in 2009 as a learning resource for students.

"A number of songs in traditional style became famous, with extensive airplay on CBC Radio, VOCM and other popular radio stations across Canada, and on internet and folk radio stations around the world."

Lidster's first appearance at the Troubadour will be supported by local group New York Public Library, an Australian bluegrass, Irish, country music folk band making a return visit to Woy Woy.

"They may remind you of great old groups like the Weavers and the Kingston Trio, but be warned, they may play anything that takes their fancy, with lots of comedy thrown in.

The New York Public Library is made up of: John Flanagan (vocals, mandolin, tenor guitar), Warren Boyd (vocals, banjo, guitar), Isabelle Fogarty (vocals, double bass, ukulele) and Alan Smart (Guitar and not much else).

Tickets are essential.
