Charity Fundraiser at
The Raven, Bath
Wednesday 11th November 2005
| event details
quiet Wednesday evening at a small upstairs room in The
Raven real ale pub in central Bath. The Raven is run by
friends of Jethro's and between them they agreed that The
Mangledwurzels could use the night to showcase a batch of
new songs, while the pub could use the night to promote
their new Songwriting Evening. The Bath Evening Chronicle
ran a nice article promoting the night, and, although there
was no charge on the door, a collection raised almost eighty
pounds for the Bath-based charity The
Research Institute For The Care Of The Elderly (R.I.C.E.).
Mangledwurzels played two sets, with six brand new songs
inserted into their first set. It was the first outing for
the likes of Valleys Girl, Farrington Gurney
and I Can Drive A Tractor, all of which have become
regulars in the band's set. The Raven's Songwriting Evening
has gone from strength to strength, and R.I.C.E. were more
than happy with an unexpected donation.
music from The Mangledwurzels from 9pm.
Raven, 7 Queen Street, Bath BA1 1HE
