James Hickman & Dan Cassidy

Recent guest artistes at Dreamers were James Hickman & Dan Cassidy. Great instrumentation from both and cultured vocals from James gave the Dreamers audience a wonderful set of songs and tunes. Standout tune for me was the hauntingly beautiful aire “Innisheer” played with such finesse by Dan Cassidy on fiddle and James on guitar. Thanks...

Dreamers Folk Weekend 2019

Posted By on Jun 24, 2019

From start to finish there was a lovely vibe about this years Folk Weekend. Pam n Al got us going with a great set of tunes for our Friday Ceilidh ably supported by inspired dance calling from Rosie Longhurst. The pace of the dancing suited the Dreamers dancers, being that their best dancing years were probably behind them! Our special guests this year, Lynne Heraud & Pat Turner, really threw themselves into the spirit of the...

Dave Gibb woz here!

Posted By on May 29, 2019

A true professional, travelling all the way down to Cornwall from Birmingham, Dave Gibb gave his Dreamers audience a great collection of songs.

I was fascinated by his speed of playing, fingers moving so fast, but also so accurately that he never missed a note, a skill honed by many years travelling up and down the country...

Pete Seegers’ 100th Birthday

Posted By on May 4, 2019

This man has had such an influence on my life, both musically and in shaping my outlook on life in general, that I cannot let the anniversary of his birth, 3rd May 1919, pass without some homage to him. The world has lost a wonderful wonderful man whose soaring vocals and strident banjo or 12 string guitar had the power to reach peoples emotions and teach them how to look after this beautiful planet Earth! Let’s make sure his...

Fly Yeti Fly – ing!

Posted By on Apr 29, 2019

Lorna & Darren made a warm & wonderful return to Dreamers last night. Fly Yeti Fly gave us great renditions of songs from their debut album, “Shine a Light in the Dark” and a sprinkling of newer material destined for their follow-up album. Their on stage chemistry worked it’s magic and showered the audience with stardust such that, by the end of the evening, Dreamers were baying for more. They have worked...
