Sun 11 November – JOE SOLO & REBEKAH FINDLAY “The Armistice Tour”

A special performance of songs and stories to celebrate the centenary of the end of WW1. With contributions from local historian MARTIN F PEAGAM “the time traveller” plus special guest BARBARA HELEN.

Joe has asked for this to be a “We Shall Overcome” occasion: there will be a collection for Teesside Socialist Clothing Bank and Middlesbrough Foodbank. If you are not sure what to bring, please reply to this e-mail and I will let you know what is needed. Or just bring cash to buy some raffle tickets.

“These are war stories, but they are also simply stories about people; people whose opinions on what they have witnessed may not fit in with yours. I say that because these songs get heckled occasionally, but each is based on a survivor’s account and each is its own truth, it just may be at odds with your own version of truth. That’s ok. They were written to make history personal, and they are just doing their job. I don’t believe in the ‘glory, honour and sacrifice’ narrative, it aggrandises death and is the fastest way of creating more; but nor do I believe in the ‘mud, blood and slaughter’ narrative because it casts these men as victims. Those conscripted can be viewed as such, but those who volunteered by and large did so of their own free will, and whether hindsight tells us differently or not, in their own minds at least, they were fighting for ‘freedom’, whatever that actually means in the context of war. So yes these men died for their country, but they killed for it too, and they were prepared to make victims of others in order to survive themselves. That brought with it problems they lived with the rest of their lives, and they had to survive not just bombs and bullets, but many days and years of reckoning with themselves. These gigs are those stories. Strictly no flags. Bring an open mind and you will find something in the no man’s land between the narratives. Among the shell holes of real lives. Be good to have your company.”

Below is a list of dates and pubs, alternating between north and south and not too far away. After this we will assess if people want to carry on with it. There is no need to book, just turn up.

Sat 17 November – PETE MORTON / Avril McCall & Dennis Firman

PETE MORTON is a dynamic and compelling performer and folk singer-songwriter with a wealth of great songs and an interesting take on world events and social injustice. His songs have been described as an unruly mix of humour, politics, love and social comment wrapping their way around the folk tradition and all delivered with feeling and warmth. Songs like ‘Another Train’ and ‘When we sing together’ have become folk club standards and his performances are a joy.

Which is why we have invited him back for his fourth gig at Toft House. “Not only impressive but a revelation” – The Guardian “A writer who manages to express everything, from the highly personal to the truly international” – R2 magazine AVRIL McCALL is predominantly from a folk/traditional background but with an ear for all genres of music. She is a lover of words and the sentiment of a song which she aspires to convey in her delivery. DENNIS FIRMAN is a blues player extraordinaire, being a member of two-piece band Easy Street. They team up tonight to combine both of their styles of music.
