After a splendid evening at Chesham Folk Club, we were pleased to be moving on immediately to another gig the following evening at another of our favourite clubs, the Hoy-at-Anchor Folk Club, held in The Royal British Legion club in Westcliff-on-Sea, near Southend.

As such, it was an honour for us to join that list
