SHADY Grove, Laura Ward and The Wellington Wailers were in concert at the Ropetackle Arts Centre on Friday.

rhe ten strong Wellington Wailers kicked off the sell-out show with a 20-minute set of sea shanties. It’s difficult to write an unbiased review concerning ourselves, but judging by audience reaction, in the words of Mr Kipling, we were exceedingly good.

The quintet Shady Grove followed us on stage and the evening just got better and better, with the icing on the cake provided by Laura Ward.

Accompanied by Shady Grove, she had the audience spellbound with her astounding vocal range.

It was the highlight, to date, for The Wellington Wailers and our gratitude goes to Shady Grove and Laura for inviting us to perform with them.
