Denbigh has for many years had a thriving music scene. Since the early days of the Denbigh folk club and the Pigstock years that blossomed henceforth, to various venues hosting variations of “plug and play” or “open mic” nights, there’s always somewhere to nurture local musical talent.
These regular sessions are a great proving ground for younger talent, to gain experience and confidence and spread their wings. So when other local events need input from live musicians, there’s usually no shortage of willing candidates ready to put themselves forward.
Denbigh plum Festival 2018!
And so it is with the upcoming Denbigh Plum festival 2018.
Cue smutty innuendo of your choice…
This year the festival organisers were approached by Sarah Lloyd, a local comedian who wanted to develop a fringe music event associated with the Plum Fest.
Sarah’s ultimate vision is for a multi-venue event hosting many simultaneous acts, giving punters a wide choice and potentially attracting a far larger audience to the town.
But one step at a time, the “Folk at the Plum” event will be held in the Guildhall Tavern on October 6th, where no fewer than eight acts will entertain from 7.30pm through till 11pm.
There is a Redhill connection to this post, in case you were wondering!
Sarah happened to visit the Ruthin All-Styles music night, to advertise the event and to recruit potential players, and Linda and Alan happened to be present, and were promptly asked to participate.
Hopefully see you there!
