Plenty for music lovers in the Southport area over the next few days:

l "Wonderful and unusual versions of songs and brilliant accompaniments and tunes." Pete Coe, Ryburn Folk Club.
l "I've been playing it over and over as I've been driving around in the car" - Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2.
l "Their music seems to be simple, pared-down, beautiful and timeless" Mick Tems, Taplas.
That's tonight at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. 8.00pm.
Monday (1st July): is the free acoustic song session in the Guest House, Union Street, Southport from around 8.30pm. Good range of real ales.
