A guest blog by Barry Evans
A ray of Mediterranean sunshine came to rural Denbighshire last Monday when the popular Greek Musician, Demitris Dourtmes dropped in unexpectedly on the July session of the Club at the Willows Restaurant, Llandegla.
Demetris, who hails from Salonica, in Greece, is renowned for his mastery of a wide range of musical styles and instruments from Jazz to World music and Stratocaster to the lute. It was the latter instrument he brought along to the club to share some of his vibrant traditional music with a rapt audience. .
Kath Evans, from Llandegla, who organises these regular events, said how pleased she was to have Demetris at the Club to contrast the music of local performers.
‘The ethos of the club is really what it says on the tin,’ she said. ‘Any performer from classical to poetry to rock and roll is assured of a warm welcome and an appreciative audience.’
The next musicians and singers session will be held at the Willows Restaurant on Monday 18th. August, followed by 22nd. September, when the guests will be the Jones Family Band from the Wirral.
