Dave Gass

I think that Dave is a very underestimated singer/songwriter who has recorded countless albums to his credit over the years. He can be found performing his songs as a regular supporter at the Cross in Avening on a Thursday evening  http://www.minchfolkclub.org/

Colin is a man of many parts, an excellent musician/composer, singer, sound and recording engineer, electronics engineer and a very excellent instrument set-up and repair genius and guitar teacher. I’m sure I’ve missed something important, oh yes a really generous and nice guy!

What you see here is the tip of his skills iceberg.

Blondes with Beards

Don't push your luck, Argentina'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2Uc Abe4snM

Richard Cox wrote the somewhat ‘political tough-in-cheek’ lyrics about the Malvenas/Falkland islands to this famous Andrew Lloyd Webber song www.andrewlloydwebber.com/

Blondes with Beards, which ones have the beards you may ask, in this performance it’s Richard oh course! There is another male bearded member of the group, Mike, who  sadly couldn't make it on this occasion but I will catch up with them all soon, watch this space! Blonds with Beards are Richard, Jo, Janice and Mike all talented performers in their own right and more recordings to follow of them individually. They can be found performing all over Gloucester and neighbouring counties at various venues including The Cross at Avening http://www.minchfolkclub.org/

The Peeky Blinders are Chris and Christina and have a lovely gentle  and relaxed style of singing and playing. They are very popular wherever they perform at festivals or clubs. Chris Fry runs a weekly spot on Stroud FM Radio on Thursday and well well worth a listen.
