31 Jan 13 8pm – 10pm
In the long history or our country, and particularly at special times of the year, men and women have gathered together to share the enjoyment of good wine accompanied by rousing music.
The long tradition of the British canon of what we once called 'folk music' but what is more generally today called 'roots music', reflecting the traditions in our lives is being brought together with a series of wines at this event. Wine, like these songs, enjoys a long and honorable tradition, and many fine wines have gone through various styles and production methods, over time, but still retain all the charm and integrity of their original concepts. Music too matures and draws strengths from its historical structures, and roots, and just as wine gains its qualities from the terroir in which it is grown and from the traditional skills of its vintners, so too does music adapt, grow and mature out of its traditional roots.
The wines will be presented and discussed by local wine educator Carolyn Bosworth-Davies, and the music will be provided by her husband Rowan, together with three friends, Shahira, David and Rachel, all of whom play and sing regularly at the Blackheath Folk Club at the British Oak Pub. As well as enjoying the wines, it is hoped that you will come along and sing if you feel inclined, or just sit back and enjoy the wine and the music together.
