DYNAMIC local duo, The Welcome Parrots, open the new season of Friday Nights at the House held in the Oldridge Bar at Kingshill House, Dursley on Friday, September 16.

The Welcome Parrots play a mixture of Blues, Americana, Folk and quirky original songs, with Ken Lush on mandola, mandocello and acoustic guitar and Phil Harris supplying the twiddly bits and clever finger work on acoustic guitar. Phil and Ken have collaborated on a variety of projects over the last 30 years including, most recently, Club of No Regrets.

The Welcome Parrots allows these seasoned campaigners to exploit Ken’s songwriting talents with the passionate blues-style playing of Phil, performing songs with both soul and a comedic edge.

Those who would like to eat can also enjoy a reasonably priced home cooked supper, £8 for two courses. The bar and kitchen open at 7pm, with the entertainment starting at 8pm. Entry is free, but the hat is passed around.
