CONCERTS and TALKS
Dates for Autumn 2008
David Bringloe remarked on the very high standard of original songs that we had heard in some of the local pubs. I said it was a shame that so few people really listened. But, that is not what the pub is for so we decided to establish a venue where people could actually hear the more thoughtful songs to which you have to listen.
So it was that we started the
DISS ACOUSTIC MUSIC CLUB
We meet every Tuesday evening from 8 until
ancient schoolroom at The Friends Meeting

If you are looking for someone to entertain… David Young says
“Since moving to Diss in 2003 I have been working on a concert repertoire of songs together with the associated history and anecdotes which have been tested on unsuspecting private audiences, often for local charities.
Sometimes there is a theme – News and Views in Songs is one of my favourites – on other occasions I just chat and play according to where the conversation takes us. If we need to get everyone involved, as with a “Day-Centre”, for instance, I have a set of lyrics – in LARGE print - with about a dozen old favourite “camp-fire” songs to choose from together with some pop songs from the 1960’s and ‘70’s.
These semi-formal occasions have proved to be most enjoyable and I look forward to many more.
As well as my own songs, there are well over a hundred more in the repertoire. If you are looking for someone to entertain your club or just a group of friends, contact me and we can arrange something suitable.”
