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 at NFC at The Queen's Hall, Nuneaton. As part of DruncMonkey they headline Tamworth Beer Festival September 8th, Anker Blues Jamm October 23rd and play support to Tir Na Nog at The Queens Hall November 14th. They 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, 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 to sing along. With contemporary and traditional numbers in any set list, they appeal to a very broad audience. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTq2LMZVFsg
