Folk and Blues at the Phoenix

Folk and Blues 'Etcetera' nights have become a regular and extremely popular feature of the Bawtry Phoenix Theatre calendar. The aim is to provide a relaxed evening in a pleasant atmosphere, with a drink and good music - what more could one want at the end of a busy week!
The evenings usually feature three groups or individuals and we have covered a wide range of music - traditional folk music with a wide variety of instruments, accordions, melodeon, pipes, flutes, clarinets and drum, some french folk music and we have even had a choir singing traditional folk songs and spirituals.

The' Etcetera' in the title is to cover the wide rangeĀ of entertainment we have featured.

We have had some jazz and some well known and not so well known ballads, as well as a very entertaining teller of tales and on another occasion, Barnsley poet, Ian McMillan.
The evenings are organised by Barrie Scully, the lead singer of 'Best of Intentions' who have more or less become our 'house group'. They play a variety of blues and popular well known ballads, as well as some instrumental arrangements.
The idea of the evenings is to provide a mix of music and hopefully there will be something that most people will enjoy.
