Promoters for Folk on the Pier

…and other fine folk, rock and roots events

Scott Butler
Scott Butler created Deckchair Productions in the early 'noughties' initially as an agency for a number of English folk rock bands which included Little Johnny England and Tickled Pink. However during that time as originator and producer of the ‘Folk on the Pier’ festival in Cromer, Norfolk , Scott branched out to produce a number of offshoot concerts under the banner ‘Folk Beyond the Pier’. Since then he has gone on to produce numerous concerts and events mainly in the East Anglia area including promoting many years of the Fairport Convention annual Winter Tour dates in Norfolk and an extensive run of 'Live at the House' concerts at Norwich's historic Assembly House. He has also produced some significant rock & blues shows including ‘Heads Down No Nonsense Boogie’ which featured the Hamsters and Wilko Johnson and two ‘Rock & Blues on the Pier’ with Dr Feelgood, Nine Below Zero and many others. Scott still produces a number of concerts but ‘Folk on the Pier’ remains the flagship production and more information on the festival can be found on the Folk on the Pier website.

‘British Bluegrass for the Bluebirds’ 

Perhaps a somewhat unlikely coupling, but early February sees an evening of Bluegrass and Country music helping a water sports club in Norfolk. The evening will also offer an opportunity to hear live performances of some self- penned songs from singer Hayley Moyses’ brand new album ‘New Songs for Nashville’.

Hayley Moyses’ Britgrass Three will bring their unique blend of Americana and sometimes fun take on well-known pop tunes blended with Country and more to Northrepps Village Hall near Cromer, to help the Bluebird Deaf Water Ski and Wakeboard Club, a not for profit organisation that was formed in 1965. The club that operates from Costessey Pits, Taverham, encourages people from all walks of life to enjoy water skiing and wakeboarding, particularly including members of the deaf community. Amongst other projects the club also holds regular activity days throughout the season for local schools, as well as for guides and scouts and participates in the Sportivate programme in conjunction with Active Norfolk.

One such member of this unique club is Scott Butler, familiar to some for being the local promoter responsible for Cromer’s annual ‘Folk on the Pier’ festival, and other concerts and events. Scott now in his early sixties took up the exciting sport of water skiing for his first time with the club two years ago, and has been so impressed by the effect this has had personally on his own health and general wellbeing that he has decided to enlist an act he has worked with on numerous occasions, to help club funds by way of organising the concert.
