Popular local music night returns for 2016 at CB2
On 16 January CB2 on Norfolk Street kicks off its 2016 series of basement sessions, Acoustic Routes, with guest act The Dryad.
The Dryad are a local group with a refreshingly individual sound woven around woodwind driven Celtic blues. Robb Appleton (harmonica) and Paula Welham (whistle, flute and saxophones) are former members of the well-established Cambridge-based acoustic band Telephone Bill and The Smooth Operators. They are regularly joined by vibrant bodhran player Sue Szymanski and Myke Clifford, a renowned jazz and blues saxophonist and flautist. In addition, Cambridge singer-songwriters Bernard Hoskin, Dave Streatfield, John Meed and Rhys Wilson will be performing ‘in the round’, taking it in turns to play songs, tell stories and occasionally accompany each other. In the second half, they will become The CAN House Band, playing popular songs by musicians including Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and The Beatles. On 16 January the night starts at 8.30pm. Tickets are £4 and can be booked online.
