Newsletter - 2007

Dear Everyman Member,

Future Guests

Please find enclosed details of Guests booked for the Everyman between September 2007 and May 2008.  Some Artists have been before, while others are new to the Everyman.  As always, there is a good mix of traditional and contemporary. It is a pleasure to welcome some of the best UK young folk musicians - Emily & Hazel Askew, and Mawkin.  Other Guests have been before, but are returning in a different guise.  CHARM combines the talents of CMR with those of Mary Humphreys & Anahata.  We are also pleased to see the return of Ron Taylor, last seen with Regal Slip, beautifully accompanied by Jeff Gillett.

Tickets and Advance Payment

Good news – we are still able to keep our ticket prices unchanged for yet another year!  THANK YOU VERY MUCH – due to your continued support, the Everyman remains financially stable so there is no reason to increase ticket prices.  Tickets are very good value, discounted to £4 for advance payment and otherwise £5 when paid for on the door.  Please find enclosed a couple of booking forms.  Additional forms are always available on Club evenings (and on the web site).


The Everyman continues to run as a Private Members Club at a venue with its own Public Entertainments Licence.   Membership is free, and only requires that each Member’s name and address details are recorded on our membership list – which they are if you have received this letter!  (The membership list is not made available to any other parties).  Please remember to let us know of any changes to your contact details.

Education Programme

We are delighted to carry on our liaison with Suffolk Folk in sponsoring Guest Artists visiting local schools.  Such workshops and presentations provide specialist tuition in song, dance and related folk subjects to the children; the Everyman's aim being to promote traditional and modern folk music in Suffolk.  Artists include Pete Coe; Harriett Bartlett; Sara Grey; Nancy Kerr & James Fagan; Alison McMorland & Geordie McIntyre; Sarah Morgan & Carolyn Robson; Tom Napper & Tom Bliss; Mick Ryan & Pete Harris; and Hilary Spencer & Grant Baynham.  If you are involved with a school that may like to participate, please contact me.

Floor Singers

It is delightful that many of our guests comment on how much they enjoyed the Floor Singers during their visit to the Everyman – we all know how lucky we are to have such an incredible quantity and quality.  That said, we are always seeking new volunteers so, if you would like to perform at the Everyman, please do let us know.

We hope you are having a grand Summer – and look forward to seeing you in the Autumn.

Best wishes,
