The Vicky Martin Memorial Street Party
Vicky Martin was well known to friends of the Folk Club and of the Rose & Crown for her work in the fabulous Delta Ladies.
Tragically Vicky passed away unexpectedly a few weeks ago.
As well as being a great musician in her own right Vicky never tired of encouraging and supporting other musicians.
So we thought it would be fitting tribute to dedicate our annual Street Party to her.
What's more The Delta Ladies have announced that they will continue to bring Hillbilly Trance to the masses and will be playing a set during the afternoon.
Other guests include
