Folk goes to church in Redwick...

Last Friday (4th October) BarlowCree went to church. Well, sort of...

Redwick Folk Club invited us to play a gig for them and the venue was the beautiful church in the village - St Thomas'.

So after a lovely beef stew at Linda & Mike's, we played two 45 minute sets.

Beforehand we were a little concerned that the building might turn out to be difficult sound-wise. But what a great venue it turned out to be!

Neil Roberts, sound engineer from Newport Folk Club, did a cracking job on the sound desk. He knows our stuff well and balanced the acoustics superbly with the PA system. The quieter pieces were particularly conducive to the church setting.

As always it was great to see some familiar faces, like Ruth & Andy, Tracey and Bob, and to make some new friends as well.

The 2nd BarlowCree Leek Awards seemed to go down well, too!

Overall, it was a cracking night! Thanks to everyone who came. Cheers, J & L.

Thanks so much for coming to Redwick Music Festival - it was indeed a cracking evening and the audience (smaller than we had hoped due to unforeseen circumstances keeping several people away) loved every minute. You could have heard a pin drop during the quieter numbers. I think this was my favourite of all the concerts we've hosted over the past three years! :-)

Hi Linda - thanks for this. We thoroughly enjoyed it too. It really was quite a unique experience. I totally agree that the quieter numbers seemed to relish the acoustic in the church - as did we! Thanks very much for having us. J & L.
