Telfords folk sessions + The Draw Inn (Folk Art) Christmas Special
Hosted by local folk pioneers The Deportees will be inviting down folk musicians to join them in an organised folk session on Telford’s intimate window stage. Playing is by invite only or you can get in touch with them direct via contact.deportees.com and arrange a show with them as house band.
Mick Adrian and Graham play guitars, mandolin, mandocello, bouzouki and banjo as well as harmonica and melodeon – almost entirely acoustic, but with some subtle electric guitar touches.
Most of all they sing – three voices finding unexpected harmonies in a mix of old and recent songs from both sides of the Atlantic, some written by themselves, others by their heroes like Woody Guthrie, Richard Thompson, Hank Williams, John Martyn, Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, Robert Johnson, Buddy Holly, Tom Waits and good old Trad Arr.You’ll hear songs to join in with, songs to make you think, songs to move you and songs to get you moving
The Draw Inn – Interactive Art / Music / Social
Drawing (no pun intended) on ideas based on events across the country such as Street Wars and Doodle-planet, ‘The Draw Inn ’ combines sketching, graffiti, painting and imagery with musical backdrops and social interaction.
Let your creativity run free. Art materials will be available on the night to hire but please feel free to bring along your own mediums. Art boards & paper will already be laid out upon arrival so you can get stuck right in.
Before time is called artists will be encouraged to swap, sell, give away, or just show off their masterpieces. Barter with whatever you can, buy them a pint, sign a t-shirt or use good old fashioned cash, so long as both parties agree you could be walking away with your very own original artworks. The night will also be accompanied with an ‘The Draw Inn’ stall where you can buy a selection of postcards, greetings cards and signed prints by participating artists.
So be participant or spectator, art lover or critic don’t miss out on this creative social.
