Johnny Coppin, from Gloucestershire, began his career in 1968 as a founder-member of the legendary folk band Decameron. He is well known as a singer/songwriter, playing guitar and piano, and has written and recorded many albums as a solo artist. He has also collaborated with numerous other luminaries including the late Laurie Lee (of Cider With Rosie), and has been the Musical director for the Festival Players since 1992. He presents the Saturday acoustic music programme on BBC Radio Gloucestershire.
Vera van Heeringen, from Holland via Llansilin, toured for nearly five years as part of the brilliantly comedic New Rope String Band before setting out on a solo career. Vera writes intelligent, soulful songs and is also a highly skilled guitarist, bringing the instrument alive in a way that’s entirely her own. She’s made two highly regarded CDs.
Tom Browne hails from Newcastle upon Tyne and has been singing and playing guitar in sessions, clubs, festivals and ceilidh groups for nigh on 50 years. Also a fine guitarist and accompanist, he has a powerful, authoritative yet melodic take on songs both traditional and contemporary.
Annette Batty, who lives near Llanfair Caereinion, is the owner of the exquisite voice in the group Manticore, who were active in the early 1990s. She sang and recorded with Steve Tilston around 2000, but has performed rarely since. She has been prised out of musical semiretirement to perform in Rhydycroesau.
John Neilson, from Llansilin, is best known as an accordion player and composer of tunes, currently playing in the trio Half Six and in a duo with fiddler Faith Brackenbury, but he occasionally sings too. Tonight he’ll do a short solo spot and a bit of accompanying.
Rhydycroesau is 3 miles west of Oswestry on the B4580 Llansilin road.
