WHO ARE NUNC? Formed in November 2014, they are Flossy McDougal, Geoff Veasey and John Kearney. Flossy sang and recorded previously in Pennyroyal along with Linda Dickson and Sue Dixon. Geoff sang and recorded previously with Black Parrot Seaside. John is a respected singer/songwriter and was a member of various bands including Romeo's Butcher. He hails from Cork, with a musical background in pretty well everything from Punk to Country. WHY NUNC? Nunc is latin for "Now"-and is intended to reflect new beginnings after previous bands folded. Flossy is Geoff's Niece. Niece+Uncle=???. Someone recently pointed out, in a reference to our shirts, Nunc could also be an acronym for "Never under nine colours."
WHERE CAN WE SEE THEM? As Nuneaton Folk Club's Resident "House Band" they open and compere both halves on the first Wednesday of every month. NFC is based at The Queen's Hall, Nuneaton. Nunc play support to Tir Na Nog at The Queens Hall Nuneaton on November 14th. You can also catch them at The Nursery Tavern in Coventry on December 21st. We'll be at Bedworth Folk Club on Wednesday January 23rd 2019. Nunc have also appeared at Warwick, Bedworth, Atherstone and Stockton Folk Clubs. Other venues they have played include Willow and Tool's Music Parlour, (Long Itchington), The Tump Folk Club, Sty Folk Club, Drapers Bar, The Twisted Barrel Brewery Tap, Ragged Bear Festival, The Broomfield Tavern,(Coventry), Nuneaton Beer Festival, Stonefest 2017, Heart of England Club, Meriden, The Abbey Theatre, The Nursery Tavern, Warwick Words Festival, Standard Triumph Social Club Coventry and The Anker Inn. They appeared "live" at several venues during the 2017 Bedworth Folk Festival. We played Earlsdon Festival in May 2018 and closed Folk On The Water at The Folly Inn, Napton, on June 30th. WHAT SORT OF MATERIAL? Set list includes some traditional folk songs, some of our own originals, some Blues and some Country. Covers of songs by Neil Young, Crowded House, Steve Earle, Sam Cooke, Kasey Chambers, Bonnie Raitt, John Prine, Richard and Linda Thompson, Bob Dylan, The Incredible String Band, Randy Newman,Smokey Robinson,U2 and Eddi Reader. Most songs are adapted to a unique arrangement, with three part harmonies and some are run together, as medleys or segues. This format is popular with audiences who like singing along. With both contemporary and traditional numbers in any set list they tend to appeal to a very broad audience. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTq2LMZVFsg
WHO ARE DRUNCMONKEY? Nunc love The Blues and Americana as much as Trad.Arr. We work collaboratively with members of other Bands, including Blues Monkey and Dragonhead's John Harris and so sometimes gig together as DruncMonkey. DruncMonkey headlined Tamworth Beer Festival September 2018 and will be back next year.
