Poacher’s Moon are back, at last, with their exciting new performance entitled ‘Seafarers’. We were thrilled to have our January premiere in Pimperne sold out and would like to invite you to our next performance which is in Spetisbury Village Hall on Saturday March 7th at 7:30pm (doors will open at 7pm). Profits after costs from this performance are going to support the hard work of the RNLI.
Combining great stories, a wonderful backdrop of projected images and John Anderson’s instantly likeable songs all set to exciting music, Poacher’s Moon will take you on a voyage to remember. Songs of tall ships, exploration, great sea battles, smugglers, wreckers, storms, shipwreck, lighthouses, lifeboats, fishing fleets, love and loss will make ‘Seafarers’ a unique memorable experience.
The six band members play an array of instruments including, six string, twelve string and tenor guitar, bouzouki, flutes, fiddle, whistle, bodhran and keyboard. Poacher’s Moon consist of the Andersons from Charlton Marshall with Ray Tower, joined by Pete Coley and Elspeth Gracie.
To entice you along here are a few commendations from the audience at Pimperne… ‘We were transported on a wave of song and a tide of history. Powerful stories of the people of the sea.’ Steve Bowers
‘Congratulations to you all, especially the author John Anderson. The musicality of it was tremendous, so much so that at times I forgot to listen to the words. Great musicians, great voices and a great show. Thoroughly recommend you go and see it.’ Martin Jardine
‘Wonderful, with beautiful and varied music and voices. Well done!’ C. Tavernor
Tickets to come along to ‘Seafarers’ cost £9. Hot drinks and home-made cakes will be available during the evening, provided by Sarah Damon’s Quintessential Vintage Teas. You are welcome to bring your own alcoholic drinks. There will be a raffle in aid of the RNLI and lifeboat collection boxes for any loose change! CDs and Souvenir Booklets from the show will also be for sale.
You can buy your tickets from Marcia’s Farm Shop or reserve them by ringing 01258 488640, texting or ringing 07582140933 or emailing me (Caroline) a reply. We hope that lots of our friends and supporters will be able to come along and join us, to raise both the roof by singing along with the choruses projected onto the screen and much needed funds for the RNLI!
The ‘Seafarers’ album will be featured on Radio Forest Fm’s ‘Forest Folk’ Show with Peter Aston on Monday 3rd February from 8pm until 10pm if you would like to listen to some of the songs from the show. I am enclosing a photo of the Pimperne show and a poster which I am hoping that you might share.
With very best wishes,
