MYSHKIN'S RUBY WARBLERS- superb Americana gig at Wickham on Friday 26th October

Lesley Carr, (ex-Hot Tamales ?queen of the washboard?, & wife of Stewart
Carr of Reet Petite & Gone), is promoting a special acoustic Americana
music event on Friday October 26th at Wickham Centre, when she presents an
evening withthe fabulous Myshkins Ruby Warblers.

Many of you will remember the ever popular Myshkin when she appeared with
Mike West, including gigs for Barking Spider at South Parade Pier, The
R.M.A Tavern and The Railway Folk Club. But check out to see what she?s up to now!

Theatre school dropout Myshkin was born and raised in Indiana, picked up her
sister's guitar and began to write songs. She released a solo album, made
her homes in tipis, trucks and buses, drove a cab, baked cakes, painted
houses, & roamed through the U.S.A. until she ended up in New Orleans in
1993, where she met songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mike West. 

Her nine years collaborating with Mike West resulted in four albums - and
300 gigs a year?. 

In 2002 Myshkin cut loose, relocated in Portland Oregon, and formed
Myshkin's Ruby Warblers. Eleven albums later she?s still on the raod, and
at the gig at Wickham she?ll be accompanied by the one and only Mat Martin,
who was previously with Kirsty McGee. 

Myshkins Ruby Warblers appear on Friday October 26 at Wickham Centre, Mill
Lane, Wickham, PO17 5AL, Doors open 7pm and the music starts at 8 p.m.
Tickets are just 7; or 5 in advance; 4 concessions.

To make it a really great night out, come at 7 p.m and get a curry for just
a fiver! (available from 7 p.m until 8.30 p.m).

Tickets are obtainable from Wickham Centre ( 01329 833588) or e mail Lesley
Carr on
