A pick with Tom Wolf: 5 December

Rick Townend reports:

On 5 December 2006 Grassroots are holding a special picking session to welcome back Tom Wolf to the UK. Tom is remembered affectionately by many in the British bluegrass world from the time in the 1970s and '80s when he was studying at Sussex University, and came along to bluegrass events all over the country; he even put on some concerts and ran his own band (the Wolf-Pack) for a short time. Now he spends most of his time between his home in the USA and his work in Kenya; however, he'll be spending a week here at the beginning of December, and hopefully visiting some of our regular bluegrass venues. Tom plays guitar, banjo, and mandolin.

Players and audience are all welcome to the 5 December session, which is at Grassroots' regular venue - the Eight Bells pub, at Hawkhurst in south-west Kent (near the A21 London-Hastings road); the pub is just a mile south of the town centre. Details are on the Grassroots website.
