Event: Bonny Sartin: A Little Bit of Dorset

Bonny Sartin

On Friday 16th November at 7.30pm at the Dorset County Museum. Bonny Sartin, front man of the popular folk group The Yetties, returns to one of his favourite Dorchester venues for a special evening’s entertainment.

Entitled ‘A Little Bit of Dorset’, the event features Bonny’s unique blend of stories, songs, poems and folklore.  As Bonny says, “The chat, songs and poems illustrate why I love Dorset,” and include a song about his father’s skill as a poacher.  Other songs were inspired by Bonny’s childhood – trips to Weymouth, village outings, scrounging food and generally larking about.  There’s also a poem called ‘The Stagecoach’ by Dorset dialect poet, William Barnes, which was set to music over 100 years ago. 

With a lot of enthusiasm, an atmospheric venue and some audience participation, the evening is expected to run with a swing.

Tickets cost £9 and are available now from the Museum Shop on 01305 756827 or email shop@dorsetcountymusem.org.  The ticket price includes a glass of wine or Dorset cider and a piece of home-made Dorset apple cake.  Doors open from 7pm.
