Following on from a magical night with comedian Stewart Lee, that most intimate of venue’s, The Waiting Room is bringing a genuine musical legend to its small stage. The one and only Dave Swarbrick.


Stewart Lee and Simon Munnery were phenomenal at the The Waiting Room, so good in fact that I paid good money to see them again four nights later at Darlington Arts Centre. Great attitude shown by two top line comics, particularly (Comedy Vehicle) tv’s Stewart that they still enjoy playing the small intimate venues when they could be packing out the big halls and earning mega bucks instead.


In the words of the restaurant’s owner and host, Luke Harding, “The Waiting Room audience was all but blown away seeing the best in the world number forty one comedian in Britain, and leading lights of the intellectual circuit so close up and personal like.”


Anyway this Sunday is another amazing scoop, number one folk fiddler in England bar none, Dave Swarbrick is performing.


Dave Swarbrick returns for a solo performance following his charm-filled appearance at the self same venue in September with Martin Carthy. Dave actually gave the restaurant venue some cracking deco wall lights last time around - so the atmosphere of the Waiting Room back room should be that much more chintz-glitzy this time around.


It is often quoted that Dave Swarbrick is "the most influential (British) fiddle player bar none", and there is no doubt that he is a leading interpreter of traditional British music, since being an initiator of the electric folk music with Fairport Convention in the 60's.

Your chance to get up close and personal to a real living legend, Dave Swarbrick, this Sunday February 28th from 7pm. £15 entry.
