Natasha Kaschevsky… Looking forward to taking some photos again, this year!
Barry Taylor… For some Years now,there has been a steady migration of Musicians, Writers and Artists,from London to areas like Hastings…which of course offers a varied and vibrant music scene. One of the recent arrivals is Pete Brown,poet,writer and performer.He is perhaps best known for his contribution,as lyricist,to 60s Supergroup CREAM.Petes writing resulted in rock-classics like “White Room”,”Politician” Sunshine Of Your Love” and many more. These songs launched Cream into a short but hectic career which made Eric Clapton,in particular, into a Global star. Pete also worked extensively with Cream bassist Jack Bruce,whose most memorable album was “Songs For A Tailor” in 1969,after the demise of Cream. Pete Brown makes a rare guest appearance at this Years BFBF in aid of St Michaels Hospice.The venue is Gecko Bar,St Leonards seafront, on Sunday 4th October, from 1.30pm.Admission is free,with a collection and sales of CDs+prints. Pete Brown will be accompanied by Jack Bruces son, Malcolm [keyboards] Headlining the Event will be The Black Sheep,plus Roger Hubbard, Peter ODonnell+Mick Bolton,Blues Plus and Eddy Odel.
