January 11. The first act in the New Year was the Ray Peters Duo when Ray Peters (who I saw as a solo act only 7 days earlier at another Kent club) was joined by Ray Phillips, an accomplished steel guitarist who has played with numerous bands. The duo packed a lot of songs into each set with not much time spent chatting. It’s a long time since I’ve heard Fly Like A Bird which was well applauded although it seemed that the dancers had either forgotten it or never learnt it. Something for everyone sums up the evening's entertainment which concluded with Ray Peters’ self-penned The Goodbye Song.
Ray Phillips appeared here in April 2019 with Ridgeway Country and they are back again this April. As our regulars know, the club meets on the second Saturday of each month but exceptionally this will be on the third Saturday of the month (April 18) as the hall is not available to the club over the Easter weekend.
