Greg Harper performing in Special Concert at Tenterden Town Hall...

 

Greg is delighted to be performing as part of a special concert arranged to celebrate two outstanding 'Kent Folk' who sadly both passed away in December last year. Kathy and Bob Drage were real 'old folkies' who spent many years promoting and running folk clubs and festivals in Kent. Latterly they were part of the Tenterden Folk Festival committee, helping to put on the Festival every autumn. Please come and support this special event. The proceeds will go towards funding Tenterden Folk Festival, the festival that they both loved so much, and to the hospice which cared for Bob in his final days.

Greg's 2018 'Storytellers in Song' charity concert, which was held on Saturday 17th February, raised £822 for Compassion in World Farming, the chosen charity for this year. After the concert we received the following kind message from Philip Lymbery CEO CIWF who attended the concert and also gave an introduction about their work at the beginning of the evening.

'A special evening with Sussex singer-songwriter, Greg Harper and his band. Greg was on great form, performing to a packed house, with his 'Storytellers in Song' event in aid of Compassion in World Farming. Playing songs from the heart, his beautifully crafted lyrics, made word-paintings over melodies that kept the audience enthralled. Sincere thanks Greg, for a great evening and for all your support'.   Philip Lymbery CEO Compassion in World Farming

Goodbye... to two of the kindest Kent Folk.

 

Sadly Bob and Kathy Drage, two lovely friends, both passed away a few days ago. They were instrumental in supporting many musical artists in the South East and will be sorely missed. Sleep easy you kind, giving, souls.

GOODBYE FRIENDS

Goodbye friends
Until the next time
Goodbye friends
You had to go
Goodbye friends
Wasn’t of your choosing
See you somewhere sometime
Along the road

Well my friends
I’ve watched you climb your mountains
From the depth
Of your despair
If will power alone
Could be your saviour
Then you’d be
The last ones standing here

Well this world can be so cruel and heartless
And our time here just drifts away
Who knows how much sand is in the hourglass
And how long each of us can stay

Goodbye friends
Although you’re leaving
In my heart
You’ll always stay
Goodbye friends
My life’s now richer
Knowing you
Along the way
