The next series of events for Pies, Peas and Performances will begin with three events in September:
- Saturday 2nd September — John Bramwell
The brilliant John Bramwell will be welcomed to Retford for the first of the Pies, Peas and Performances autumn events. John is the leading light from the Mercury Award nominated I Am Kloot, whose albums have given them a strong and committed following over the years. This will be one of John’s smaller, more intimate shows as he releases his new solo album ‘Leave Alone The Empty Spaces’.
There is no bar but feel free to bring your own beer, wine, refreshment. Pie and peas will be served as part of the evening and Dave Fidler will provide support Tickets cost £15.00. Doors open at 7.00pm and the first half starts at 7.45pm.
- Saturday 23rd September — Miles Hunt and Erica Nockalls (from The Wonderstuff)
This event has already sold out.
- Friday 29th September — Michael McDermott
Michael McDermott has been described by no less than Stephen King as “America’s greatest rock and roll secret of the last twenty years”. Over from America for a whistle stop tour, Michael makes a welcome return to Retford. His last performance was memorable, heartfelt and incredibly powerful. Like Bob Dylan or Bruce Springsteen — but ours — and in Retford. His current album is ‘Willow Springs’, described as quality, personality and heart — guaranteed.
There will be no pies and peas on this occasion but do bring your own beer, wine, etc. Doors open at 7.00pm and tickets cost £10.00.
As usual, the events take place at St Saviour’s Community Hall on Lidget Lane (by St Saviour’s Church). Tickets are available from Bookworm in Retford or www.wegottickets.com. For more information see the Pies, Peas and Performances Facebook page.
