Thread Name: Keith Marsden Tribute Concert-Morley UK, 10 Sept
Subject: Keith Marsden Memorial Concert - 10 Sep
Just a factual heads-up:

There's a special Keith Marsden Memorial Concert taking place on Saturday 10th September 2011 at 8 pm at Morley Working Men's Club (that's Morley in West Yorkshire, UK, just south of Leeds), at which all but two of the songs of the iconic Yorkshire songwriter Keith Marsden will be performed, together with a number of other items in tribute.
Singers appearing include Graham Pirt, John Conolly, David Kidman, Alma Wright and Carol Southwell.
The concert has been organised by Keith Brown of Morley Folk Club, full details at www.morleyfolk.org ..
Tickets are 6, and, fittingly, all proceeds go to British Heart Foundation.
Keith died on 10th August 1991, and even now his talent is undersung... yet there is no question that he penned some of the very finest and most perceptive of contemporary folk songs - many of which have already passed into tradition.
This concert will be a unique chance to appreciate the breadth and quality of Keith's songwriting, and to hear all these fine songs in one generously-filled programme.

Hoping to raise the rafters - and plenty of cash for the BHF !
