Chorlton Coffee Festival at Good Neighbours

Chorlton Coffee Festival at Good Neighbours

At the June 27th Coffee Morning, the Chorlton Coffee Festival came to Good Neighbours. Hannah Davies, the associate producer of the festival, brought along some filter coffee for people to drink. In addition, Josie Teubler had managed to get donations of fresh scones & jam from theTea Hive and chocolate cake from the ever-generous Barbakan. This all went down like …er…hot cakes.  After Hannah’s talk a vote was held on tea v coffee and tea just about won out

Then Zoe Mulford, an American folk singer and  songwriter based in Manchester,  played banjo & guitar and sang several songs “Will You Go Lassie Go”; the Paul McCartney song “Blackbird Singing in the Dead of Night”; the folk song “The Fox”;’  Gershwin’s “Summertime”; the Fats Waller classic “Ain’t Misbehavin’ ” and finally Leadbelly’s “Goodnight Irene”

Zoe is an exceptional singer with a beautiful voice and she can be seen and heard in this video
