FOLK: DAVEY'S on the road again . . .; GO2.
Singer, guitarist, tenor banjo wizard and writer of excellent songs, Davey worked with the Furey brothers for 16 years before striking out on his own in 1992.
Since then, his own band - Davey Arthur & Co, have taken on their own world-wide tours while Davey's first solo album, A Celtic Sidesaddle, quickly demonstrated an individual and refreshing approach to Celtic music, combining traditional melodies with jazz chords and rhythms.
You can catch Davey tonight at the Four Provinces Club in Allesley Old Road, Coventry, to kick off a week of Irish entertainment. Tomorrow night sees local band The Cow That Ate The Blanket in concert. They will also be hosting a music session at the Four Provinces on Tuesday evening.

A NEW season of Songs from Around the World, is launched on Wednesday, offering a chance to be part of a group learning traditional songs from Eastern Europe, Africa, America and Britain.
The group, Coventry WorldSong, gave a superb performance this summer at the Brinklow Folk Weekend and is the brainchild of theatre and voice teacher Chris Rowbury.
Chris tells me that everyone is welcome whether they have experience as singers or not. Songs are taught orally so there's no need to read music and the sessions are run in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
The weekly get-togethers take place from 7.15-9.15pm at The Coventry University Performing Arts Centre on Leasowes Road, next to Bishop Ullathorne School.

LITTLE Johnny England, Tarras, Steve Tilston and local line-ups Peeping Tom, A Band Called Frank and The Oddsods are among the acts appearing at this weekend's Bromyard Folk Festival.
