Better Late Than Naked

Have your say

Spalding Folk Club are meeting at The South Holland Centre on Wednesday, February 2 when the guests are Lincolnshire band Better Late Than Naked.

Better Late Than Naked are Phil Biggs, Mark Addison and John Blanks who have only been together a few years, all have great pedigrees on the Lincolnshire folk scene.

Singer Phil Biggs lives in Holbeach and has a well-deserved reputation locally.

Mark is a bass player and award-winning songwriter who has made regular appearances at the Radio Lincolnshire folksong competition. He is a former member of ceilidh bands Higgledy Piggledy, The Old Parrot Band and Byard’s Leap. He currently plays with Akmed’s Camel.

Phil is guitarist, singer and songwriter, well-known for his warm and sensitive interpretations of traditional and contemporary material as well as for his own melodic and passionate songs. He’s no mean tune player either and with Mark is part of Akmed’s Camel. He is the local hero of the band and appears regularly at Spalding folk club where he has an enthusiastic following.

John is a fine singer and guitarist from the north of the county and has worked for many years as a solo performer. His intricate guitar work dazzles while his powerful singing touches the heart. He collaborated with Mark in 2006 to write the award winning song The Fallen of Fulstow, celebrating the successful fight of Fulstow villagers for proper commemoration of so-called deserters in the 1914-18 war.

Admission is £6 (£5 concessions) and doors open at 8pm. More details 01406 380100.
