Singers Night hosted by Heather
We had another great night at the Six Bells featuring many performers some of whom were new to us.
However, we were aware that night about our dear friend Chris Mansell being very ill and that he had been admitted to hospital.
Then by the end of last week we were all shocked by the news of his passing.
Chris Mansell was a local legend on the music scene and he was an integral part of the Six Bells Folk & Blues Club. He established the club 30 years ago and ran and hosted it until a few years ago.
During the past year or so Chris had been returning to play at the club and it was always a joy to behold his unique musical talent.
So, we shall take inspiration from him and carry on running the club for as long as we can. We are having great nights of music and friendship and the old camaraderie has returned, similar to how it was when Chris hosted the club.
We all lose people that we don’t want to lose, but we all have our lives to live.
I will, therefore, look forward to us all coming together over the music we play to each other. Let’s carry on enjoying this great music scene that we’ve all help create.
The memory of Chris and so many other great musicians that have left this world will continue to inspire us to do that.
Thank you Chris for all you did for the music scene and all the great memories.
And the Six Bells Folk & Blues Club. The club you ran for everyone to enjoy.
We’ll keep it going.
