Family affair for folk club

Arundel’s Willows Folk Club welcome their next special guest act, family trio Wood Wire & Words, on Wednesday July 20.

Tuesday, 19th July 2011, 8:31 am

Club director Chris Davis said: “Performing a blend of bluegrass, folk and acoustic Americana, the combination of husband and wife Clare and David Rozzell with father/father-in-law Pat Francis makes Wood Wire & Words a true family band in every sense of the word!

“The relaxed ease that these three have with each other transmits to the audience a unique and wonderful chemistry that has impressed many a crowd since their formation.  

“The band have performed at the Willows on several occasions, and each time have brought the house down with their air-tight vocal harmonies, David’s up-beat guitar, Clare’s solid bass rhythms, Pat’s instrumental wizardry on both dobro and mandolin, and a terrific selection of vintage and original material.  

“Their continual rise in stature has seen them performing prestigious gigs at several major bluegrass festivals in mainland Europe, and their superb live shows continue to attract a wide variety of music lovers.

“With a wealth of individual musical experience behind them, and a fantastic career surely ahead of them, Wood Wire & Words are fast becoming one of the hottest acoustic bands around - don’t miss your chance to see them! “

Entrance for the band’s gig on Wednesday, July 20 is £4. The Willows Folk Club meets every Wednesday at 8pm in the function room of Arundel Football Club, Mill Road, Arundel, situated to the rear of the large public car park opposite Arundel Castle.
