Beverley Young is happy to be returning to perform and has put together a top-class set from her extensive repertoire of songs to entertain us. Her songs will mostly be from the British and Irish traditions, with maybe a little sprinkling of trad-style American country added for good measure. Expect tales of roguish behaviour, work and hardship and love and loss -- traditional songs that prove nothing really changes through the years.
Beverley is a long time singer and lover of folk song. She cut her style at the Devonport Folk Club and has had the good fortune to be able to share the stage with her idols Martin Carthy and Andy Irvine at festivals and folk clubs around New Zealand. She has also had the good fortune to have married guitarist Alan Young, who for many years has provided the core of her backings at gigs, recordings and festivals.
So no matter how cold or wet the weather outside maybe, it will be a warm and friendly night at East Coast. Beverley is looking forward to entertaining you, and to have the pleasure of your company.
See you there!
