What our audiences have said about us

"Malt Whiskers - consists of Robin 'Brad' Braddow and husband and wife Ray and Pam Thompson. Whether performing solo or together these musicians from the Newark area represent everything good about the grass roots of folk music. Highly talented, yet charming and modest, their singing and musicianship is of the highest calibre. Tina Shirt, the organiser of Mansfield Folk Club wrote 'This lively trio had us calling for more on their last visit. They just love to play and have a fabulously varied repertoire'. You can't say fairer than that."

Programme notes - Lincolnshire Day of Folk 2015 and 2016

Malt Whiskers at the Lincolnshire Festival of Folk 2016
Barn Dance at St Mark's Mansfield

"We are so pleased that you enjoyed your trip to Mansfield and the 'do' at St Mark's. We were all absolutely delighted. The venue worked well - first time for us to use the space in the church like that - people turned up in different shapes and sizes, all joined in and had a good time and folk are now asking for more. Please pass on thanks to Ray, Brad and Chris as well as pat yourself on the back for a wonderful evening. The music was great, including the songs, Chris was patient at guiding us through the steps. It was thoroughly professional but very accessible and friendly. We all really enjoyed ourselves and it was perfect as a community event to say good bye to the Vicar and his family."

Pam Bishop from St Mark's Church, Mansfield

"Thank you for what was, by all accounts, a fantastic evening! Thank you so much for providing the music and entertainment - the pupils and staff all had a brilliant time and really enjoyed themselves. Pleased to hear they participated fully! Glad you all enjoyed yourselves too. Of course we will bear you in mind, for that, and any other events in the future. Thank you again."

From everyone at St Andrew's Church

"We had a great night with Malt Whiskers, thank you. The ceilidh was a great success, great music, varied dances, lots of fun and someone who was very unsure and had never been to a ceilidh wants to know when the next one is! "
