Australian singer-songwriter Chloe Hall has embarked on her third UK tour and is on her way to Letham! When she played Letham Nights in 2009 with her trio, we could see she’d fallen in love. With Letham. With the locals. With the magic that happens when everyone pulls together to make these special nights happen. This year, as part of a UK-wide tour, Chloe has teamed up with fiddle legend Silas Palmer (Women in Docs, Spot the Dog, Deep Blue Orchestra) to form a duo, groundbreakingly called ‘Chloe & Silas’. With over 30 years performance experience between them, they’ll be bringing their blend of uplifting harmonies, great songs and exciting playing to Letham Nights for the first time. This is music that will make you feel good!

Only a few days to go before the Chloe Hall Trio come to Letham Nights. It is going to be a fantastic night. Tickets are selling so get yours now! You can usually pay on the door but it helps us a lot if we know who is going to make it….
The band have finished their tour of Canada and are now in Ireland.
They play some gigs there and then head for Scotland where they will play the Falkirk Folk Club and Caberet Voltaire in Edinburgh before coming to Letham Nights.
Well known to lovers of Australian contemporary folk, Chloe is an exceptional songwriter with a truly beautiful voice. The new trio have lifted Chloe’s already engaging and charismatic performances to new heights, with uplifting 3-part harmonies, bass (Chris Mildren) and a cracking rhythm section (Teal Bain-Roben). More info at: www.letham.org.uk, www.smartcommunityfife.org.uk and www.chloehall.com.au
This is a major scoop for our village hall. Don’t miss it!

Thanks to everyone who made it along to the Bex Marshall gig on Saturday. A great time was had and reviews will be posted on Letham.org.uk and Smartcommunityfife websites as soon as our day jobs allow. In the meantime don’t forget that the next one is only 3 weeks away on 12th September. I really think this is going to be the best one yet. Chloe has been keeping in touch the whole time while she and the band have been touring Canada. Her music and lyrics won’t fail to touch you and you will leave the hall with a happy warm glow! So… get your orders in for ticket reservation asap! And since the 2 for £10 offer we had on was not made very public on Saturday, we would like to offer this to anyone who makes a booking before the end of the week…. See you all soon, Mike
ps thanks also to those who filled in the feedback forms – it really helps and if you have anything else you want to say, just drop me an email
pps Please put up the poster in your local area and let me know if you have done so and where.
