The Charlie and Kathleen Dunnery Children’s Fund

Hey Guys, (especially our House Concert hosts) I just wanna remind you that once the CKDCF weekend is nearly sold out.  As you know, the concerts are sold out each year. Still, I always get people calling me on the last week for tickets. Please note I can't get them no matter who you are. There is a very very strict fire limit on the venue and we will be shut down if we go over.

Tickets to the charity concert on Saturday, October 21st in Egremont will be going on sale to the general public very soon so please book all your hotels and tickets etc asap.

We will post links to buy tickets on  CKDCF website and the CKDCF Facebook page

You can also contact Kate at with questions (but she can't get you in once we're sold out either)

I can't wait to see you there and raise some good cash for the kids. We have a great weekend of fun lined up for you and some great musicians and songwriters. Please get your tickets.

Thank You-

    Hello Frank
    hope your well and ready for your next gig
    i was just at the ckdcf last night with my wife Clare (a long time admirer too and occasional drummer) in good old egremont
    and it reconfirmed why i still believe you’re one of the most charismatic performers i’ve ever had the pleasure to see, several times now and also my favourite guitarist ( along with al di meola
    gary moore john mclaughlin ( whom i saw with shakti in the late 70’s at the free trade in Manchester when i was 15 years old)
    you always play guitar with such feel and what my keyboard player mate calls “authority” and your voice is better than ever.
    The Ckdcf night was truly uplifting and brought emotional tears to many eyes, all the musicians that night deserve the highest praise.
    the songs you chose worked well with the setup of musicians even minus drums, with generous helpings of my favourite major 7 chords to boot
    you’ve probably guessed i’m a guitarist too, with an equal love of well written and heartfelt songwriting ( my first love of music started with the jazz rock movement of the mid to late 70’s
    with return to forever’s romantic warrior album being an almost religious conversion type experience) my brother and me spent countless hours trying to out improvise each other with ever faster al di meola type runs over various a minor to fmaj flamenco/ jazz type duelling)
    your early influences in music are spookily similar to mine but enough of that , its time to round it up and say again a heartfelt thanks.
    all the best frank, the world needs more people like you
    P.S I was the tall guy who came up to shake your hand just before the final bows and when the keyboard player peter jones? fell over( hope he’s ok?)
