THIS IS A MOOT NOT TO BE MISSED!
You are invited to join us for a fabulous night of fun and frolicking! Our final moot before our summer break! (Hammertown Moots do not run in July or August.)
First of all, we are pleased to bringing a new Pagan artist to our community alll the way from San Francisco!
SHARON KNIGHT will be performing along with her partner Winter (who "usually wears leather pants" according to the website http://sharonknight.net/about.html *wink*).
A description from her site http://www.sharonknight.net:
"San Francisco songstress Sharon Knight is a Celtic folk singer in leather armbands. She plays octave mandolin as if it were an electric guitar and sings as though she means to summon a storm. Her penchant for combining fierce and gutsy bravado with ethereal beauty, a hearty dose of fantastical lyrics, and an obvious love of storytelling has inspired her own musical style, “Neofolk Romantique”. Although her musical foundations are solidly built on her Celtic heritage, Sharon has never been one to hold fast to tradition, preferring instead to look to her roots for inspiration and then chart her own path."
This will be Sharon's first trip to perform for our awesome community so let's be sure to show her a great time!
***OPENING ACT – Martin Springett
We are also pleased to welcome Martin Springett to our stage for his first performance for the Hammertown Moot!
Martin Springett was born in Crayford, Kent, England, in 1947. He studied art (that is he learned to play the Guitar) for two semesters at the Brassey School of Art in Hastings, Sussex. He emigrated to the West Coast of Canada in 1965, but returned to the UK in 1973 to pursue music in various bands. He spent time in Germany, and toured through Europe.
While in London Martin started to illustrate and design record covers for Columbia records. Upon his return to Vancouver, Martin carried on with music and illustrated various books and magazines. In 1978 he moved to Toronto, maintaining activity in every area where illustration is required. He released his own album, "The Gardening Club", in 1983.
He still pursues the Musical Muse, recently producing a new CD, "Blue Evening" with his band "FREEFALL", an independent, instrumental album called "Rough Magic"; a collection of explorations on the guitar, and a collection of tunes inspired by the writings of Guy Gavriel Kay called "Bright Weaving".
