A LAST appearance in St Albans before heading north is being given by Rosie Bisset and Clive Rothwell on Sunday evening.

The duo are appearing at the Rose and Crown in St Michael's Street in an evening of folk song and music which begins at 8pm.

Rosie, who is starting a new job in Newcastle, plays melodeon and concertina and has played for two of the top Morris dance groups in the country, Great Western Morris and Windsor Morris.

It means she can combine dance tunes with a wide range of traditional and contemporary songs.

Clive is a guitarist and singer, using a range of tunings to accompany songs and tunes.

The duo offer unfamiliar repertoire as well as a fresh take on some better-known material. And as it is Rosie's swansong, there may be some surprise guests to see her on her way.

There is no charge for admission to the evening which includes songs and music from other local performers but a collection will be taken.

Further information can be obtained by calling Alison Macfarlane on 01727 852111 or see www.stalbansfolkmusic.org.uk
