Morning Tide, Tony Hall, from Threescore

Making WavesWe have been sent a recording of the song Morning Tide which was written by Norfolk melodeon
maestro Tony Hall and recorded by the band Threescore on their most recent CD.

The song was written in the context of the Falklands War (1982) so is appropriate at this time of
annual remembrance.

Finn Collinson & Zoe Wren at The Canopy

ACOUSTIC “DOUBLE HEADER” at the Canopy Theatre, Beccles, Suffolk – Sat 31st October – 8 p.m.
Finn Collinson
Finn Collinson is a recorder player, singer and multi-instrumentalist from East Anglia. Heralded by The Recorder Magazine as a “folk recorder pioneer”, Finn has rapidly been gaining a reputation as one of the foremost exponents of the recorder on the English folk scene, performing at major folk clubs and festivals including Sidmouth Folk Festival, Broadstairs Folk Week and FolkEast, and was shortlisted for the BBC Young Folk Award in 2018.

Finn’s debut solo album, “Call To Mind” was released in September 2019 and has received widespread critical acclaim and extensive airplay in the UK and US. Featuring mainly original material, the album was described by Spiral Earth as “exceptionally well executed folk rock”.
Together with his band, Finn completed his first national headline tour in 2019, but this visit to the Canopy Theatre will be a solo show (with his extensive autumn plans for a band tour having been postponed to 2021 thanks to Covid 19).
