A comical folk star is making a welcome return to the Staffordshire Moorlands.

Keith Donnelly, who first performed in the area 30 years ago, will be performing at the Red Lion in Cheddleton tomorrow (Thursday, April 10) for the next Folk at the Lion slot.

Keith can make you laugh, cry or do anything you may or may not want to do. He is an accomplished singer guitarist and writer of national fame.

Enjoy an evening of songs and laughter with this incomparably funny man, who has even been a scriptwriter for Jasper Carrot so expect some incisive observational humour.

Keith first appeared in Leek in the 1980s with Waterfall, a trio with Martin Oran and Gilly Darby which later became a duo with Keith and Gilly called Nothing By Chance and later Little Aeroplane both again returing to Leek.

Gilly has recently moved to New Zealand and Keith has enjoyed a solo career where his comedy genius has been allowed to flourish.

In the last ten years he has appeared at hundreds of festivals, universities and colleges, theatres and clubs all over the world as well as being in demand as an after-dinner speaker.

Dave Rhead, organiser of Folk at the Lion, said: "Keith is looking forward to his return to Leek in what will be the funniest night of our season."
