Sunjay, a popular folk artist will be making much eagerly await return the East Riding next month.
Ahead of his return The Processed Pea Folk Club Sunjay says not only will he be performing but hopes to take in some of the sights.
Sunjay last appeared at The Processed Pea Folk Club 12 months ago. He proved so popular that that have they asked him to play for them again.
Speaking ahead of his appearance Sunjay said;
“The club is very nice. They normally tend to sell out the gigs and the audience is a great audience to play to, as they are very appreciative.”
“Unfortunately, I haven’t had the chance to tour around the area, as I arrived for the gig late afternoon and leave the same evening. I hope sometime to be able to enjoy the local scenery.”
The Processed Pea Folk Club is 50 years old this year. It was established on the 2nd September 1969 by Stuart Bell, who is still running it and it is the oldest folk club in Great Britain. It still operates out of its original venue, Light Dragon Concert Room, Etton, Beverley, HU17 7PQ.
Sunjay Came Highly Recommended And We Loved Him
“The first time we booked him, he had come very highly recommended through friends. The audience loved him and thought he was excellent, hence we invited him back”.
Since its launch, the club has seen over 100,000 attend events. They have had some huge names play there over the years.
Artists that have appeared include Mungo Jerry, Jasper Carrot, The Oldham Tinkers, The Water Sons, Julie Felix, Maddy Prior, all the members of Lindisfarne.
As a club, The Processed Pea also love to help promote young, talented, up and coming artists, which is vital in today’s climate.
This is important as it is very hard for young musicians to find captive audiences to play to, and these folk clubs do exactly that.
