The next Open Meeting is entitled ‘Milton Keynes to Mississippi’ and is on Monday 17th July 2023 at the Bowling Club in Abbey Lane, doors open at 1:45 pm for a 2:30 pm start. This was originally due back in February but was cancelled due to illness.
It will be a musical meeting when we will be introducing Saffron Summerfield, who is a highly respected international singer/composer/recording artist and poet. Saffron has performed all over the UK, Europe, USA, New Zealand and Hong Kong and has toured with Joan Armatrading and Fairport Convention.
Saffron’s career began in the 1970s London Folk scene. She went on to record nine albums and write songs for Channel 4 and the BBC, she is also one of the few women acoustic bottle-neck blues guitarists which she learnt whilst in Mississippi in the 70s.
So this promises to be a very entertaining event. There will also be a free raffle and refreshments with plenty of opportunity to socialise with your u3a friends. We look forward to seeing you there.
