    Wendy is new to Bromsgrove but comes highly recommended, not least from our friends at The Red Lion, Kings Heath.

    She is a lovely singer and a deft guitar player with a fine stage presence, who handles trad with subtlety and insight, while her original material covers a range of human experience, both historical and modern, some great stories, poignant moments, and all wrapped up in some very fine tunes.

    She has a real bubbly personality that really pushes flamboyance into her set, but not enough to detract from the songs, which is important as many of her songs have important points to make on the human condition, including the misery we inflict on each other.

    She will be well supported on the night by Fairfield in whatever line-up is available to them.

    In the 1940s children would gather round the radio after their tea on weekdays to listen to the latest instalment of "Dick Barton Special Agent" which always ended with a cliffhanger. To bring those memories back the drama  group are producing the stage version introducing characters from the  original radio programme.
