Here's a review written by the chair of Chesterfield Folk Club, David Bateson OBE - a fine singer/songwriter in his own right:-
Well-loved local musicians Paul Chisnell, Ady Hall and Rob Jourdain opened the evening with a pastoral suite of songs. They sounded both contemporary and yet channelled elements of Pentangle and other late Sixties and early Seventies sounds. The blend of gentle guitar and bouzouki and wonderfully melodic violin and viola provided the perfect setting for Paul’s beautifully warm vocals and his own rhythmic drumming.
Swallows, penned by Ady, had some gorgeous harmonies and U2’s Still Don’t Know What I’m Looking For involved the enthralled audience. The trio go by the name of Ar Faoued (a Breton link) and are bound to give you an outstanding evening.
A warm welcome awaits you at the Cross Scythes, featuring a range of beers including favourites from Thornbridge.
