SONG - Shammick Acoustic - Geoff Lakeman & Rob Murch
The ‘museum’ at the Pack o’ Cards, High Street, Combe Martin EX34 0JD.

A welcome return to both these fine musicians. Although not seen at Shammick Acoustic together before, Geoff the ‘concertina crooner’ and Rob, the ‘titan of twang’ have recently formed this dynamic new folk/acoustic duo. Anyone in the West Country and way beyond will sit up and take notice at the name of ‘Lakeman’, known for fine music through sons Seth, Sean and Sam, but maybe they wouldn’t lead one to expect the Americana and jazz parts of his repertoire, or his very fine playing of the unusual duet concertina. Rob is revered master of the banjo with a unique punchy finger style, and has played for many years with the renowned Dartmoor Pixie Band, and as a third of Moor Music with Mark Bazeley and Jason Rice. Both men live on Dartmoor, and it was inevitable that they would meet up musically, and due to their somewhat unusual repertoires link up and perform together. So expect original and West Country songs, rattling traditional tunes, and foot-stomping ragtime and cakewalk riffs with a relaxed and yet sparkling stage presence, bubbling with the ‘feel-good’ factor.

Tickets are £9.00 if bought in advance through WeGotTickets or, if you’re in Combe Martin, at The Pack o’ Cards or Pets’ Pantry, both in High Street, or for £10.00 at the door (with a £2.00 discount for members of Shammick Acoustic).  They may also be reserved by ringing Tom & Barbara Brown on 01271 882366.
