The Harrys went down a storm on their return to the Lyceum and showed off a couple of new crew.
Sadly, although she came along to provide moral support and help with the actions in a couple of the songs, Helen the fiddle player was hors de jeu and was unable to play or sing due to illness. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Celebrating Steve Tippings Life
Many of Steve’s friends and family came to the Lyceum to celebrate and remember what made Steve special to so many people.
We raised £250 on the night and presented a cheque to Ann and Greg Tippings for Children in Squash.
Thanks to everyone who turned up to make it a truly memorable evening.

Whitefern Mountain String Band
7 lads from Resolven and suburbs who have two things in common. They all own at least one instrument. And they like to play them ‘til their fingers bleed, only there were six of them because one of them was on shift. Still a cracking night, though.

Dana & Susan Robinson
New to Newport but not South Wales (Last time they visited the Llantrisant Club). This couple from Ashville North Carolina played a good mix of self-penned and other people’s music.
This popular local multi-instrumentalist kept us amused all evening and even came back the following week to see Dana & Susan Robinson

Martin Carthy MBE
Folk Music Legend
Martin did us proud. Despite problems with the PA in the first half, he kept going and the audience were served up a treat. Very well received.
