THE three surviving members of Fotheringay are to perform at the Nettlebed Folk Club on Monday.

Jerry Donahue, Gerry Conway and Pat Donaldson reunited earlier this year following the release of their new four-disc box set, Nothing More, The Collected Fotheringay, and Mick Houghton’s biography on Sandy Denny: I’ve Always Kept A Unicorn.

The live line-up of Donahue on guitar, Conway on drums and Donaldson on bass will be joined by special guests PJ Wright filling in Trevor Lucas’s guitarist shoes, and Kathryn Roberts and Sally Barker providing vocals in place of Sandy Denny.

The group was formed in 1970 by Denny on her departure from Fairport Convention but they only produced one album, Fotheringay, which included tracks Nothing More and The Sea, before disbanding a year later. The album peaked at number 18 in the UK album charts.

Tickets are available in advance for £20 from 01628 636620. For more information, visit www.fotheringay.com
