Coquettish as a fly circling a syrup stopper

A Folk Evening @UpstairsRitzy

(Para ler este post em Português: Faceira como mosca em rolha de xarope)

April 11th, 2013. For those who enjoy folk music… Attending an invitation of my lovely English teacher at LITE College Sophie, I went together with a few colleagues to Upstairs at the Ritzy to watch one of our teachers playing folk music. As the Brits say, it was ‘marvelous‘!

At first I didn’t know what was planned for the evening and I got amazingly pleased to discover that there would be not just one but actually 5 different acts – and all of them were stunning!

The first gig was performed by Steve Folk, who was also the host of the event. His voice is delightful! He started with a beautiful song about London – too bad I didn’t tape it! Fortunately I got his 3rd song, Amsterdam:


This is Thomas Fazzini, our English teacher at LITE College. Pay special attention to his lyrics – they are incredible, I love them!


Then it was time for Blair Chadwick & Charlie Batesman, they did a mix of folk and country styles. Forgive me I was dumb enough to delete the video from my camera after posting it on facebook… so I couldn’t upload it on YouTube, but here’s the link to the video:

Addison is a great singer and violin player from Spain:


And Kay Elizabeth ended the evening with her smooth and tuned powerful voice…
