Farewell to the Cyder House Players

Sadly after 2 years and some great performances at this music-lovers country pub, we have to say goodbye to the Cyder House Players. Congratulations to all the local musicians, including CULL, Adrian : FLYNN, Damien : GOO, David : IRVINE, Billy : JJMD : NEADS, Anthea : NICHOLLS, Gillie : Nour Hill : PEARSE, Chris : Prince, Andy : Source, The : SEUME, Tristan : Spotlight Canibal : Sunday's Child : Susie Clarke Band : WORRALL, Tom : WILSON-TAYLOR, Andy and many more, who made Shackleford such a wonderful place to be on a Tuesday night. It was the creation of Susie Clarke, a very talented young singer/sopngwriter, who plays guitar solo and with her band.

Farnham Free Festival (cancelled)

Sadly this years Farnham Free Festival to be held Sunday 22nd June at the Fox Inn, Lower Bourne, Nr Farnham has been cancelled due to complaints from the venues neighbours over parking. I wish that some of these music-haters would go live in a cave somewhere, instead of next to a lovely country pub thats just trying to survive in this cold climate for live music venues. It has just been a total waste of time for Micky Kemp, and musicians including Six Miles Away, Laura Colegate and all those involved with promoting and catering for this great event.

Fireworks 2008

Once again its time to celebrate that great man, who had a wonderful idea. If you could just get rid of all the politicians, the world would be a better place. No, not Boris Johnson, but Guy Fawkes. If you can't be bothered to send the kids down the cornershop to buy their own, why not go to an organised display. Here are just a few ....

For DISCiples see Famous Five

If you have seen the DISCiples over the last few years, come down and check out the Famous Five Band, they play the tracks you love and remember, they even look the same, well most of them do. At the end of 2007, 5 of the 6 DISCiples decided to break away and form a new band. This left the keyboard player (Nick van Dorp) with the Band name and little else to try and carry on. One of the most surprising things about the Famous Five Band, is that it has 6 members, but no dogs. It features the sweet tones of Liesbeth Eggink from Holland (lead vocals), Julia Krajewska (lead vocals), Simon Cowl (guitar and vocals), Andy Cooper (guitar), Mike Barden (bass guitar and keyboards), and Alan Cottrell (drums and percussion).
