It’s great to have Shirley Folk Club favourites The Melancholy Brothers back for a Feature slot. Both Dave and Russell have been making music together for more years than they care to remember, in different bands and in various lineups. Now an acoustic duo, they decided a few years ago to concentrate purely on writing and performing their own songs. Sometimes writing separately and sometimes together, their signature style features beautifully blended harmony vocals and finely crafted guitar arrangements. Their lyrics tend towards the melancholy hence the name but don’t let that fool you and often include wry humour, social observation and even philosophical musing into the songs. They are not averse to playing the odd love song too!
Must not forget to mention the two song slot for everyone else.
Doors open at 7.45 for a 8pm start.
