Details of talks given by Alan .W. Bolt
Have been involved with entertainment for many years, originally.... performing in folk clubs & other venues as a semi-pro whilst running my own club & being a concert co-ordinator & a main stage festival compere. I later became a professional singer & guitarist & with a love of comedy I started to include more humorous items into my performances which enhanced my presentation & allowed me to cover a more diverse set of venues. I also became a respected M.C. / compere for charity balls, concerts & cabaret. After 45 years of plying my trade & now semi-retired, I have slipped very nicely into guest speaking / entertaining organisations most of which have a mature membership. Using my eclectic list of songs & natural comedic wit plus my ability to observe life generally & relate all my experiences over the years, I now have a unique presentation that is a great mix of well known songs & very amusing chat. My trusty old guitar compliments it all & completes the set up. I have been working with the following organisations now for sometime, ie U3A's, Probus, W.I., AgeUK, Ladies Lunches Clubs, Veterans plus Private, Public & Corporate Functions & receive many encouraging comments, lovely phones calls & e-mails after my presentations.
Joan, Speakerfinder from Melton Mowbray U3A wrote: "Thanks for a most entertaining meeting. There were lots of positive comments. Your presentation was a great mix of amazing guitar playing, jokes, a variety of songs, stories & audience participation. We all went away with that feel good factor,"
Bob Brooker editor of Argeebee Music Magazine writes : "Over the years Alan has learned his craft well which has resulted in a successful career as a well respected singer & guitarist with the ability to deliver lots of humour too which adds tremendously to his concerts. Yes, he reckons he's semi-retired now but relocation to Lincolnshire 20 years ago has opened up a whole new audience base, mainly of people of a similar age to himself. This has inspired his current choice of songs & given him more opportunity to include anecdotes, stories & chat in between. He's done the lot really BBC Tv, Radio, Festivals, Concerts & Theatre. A more relaxed, entertaining musician & singer I have yet to to encounter."
Note: I can cover all of Lincolnshire & some surrounding areas too. Ref enquiries that may involve further mileage, contact me & we can discuss it. My main period of availability is from March - November inclusive. I may be able to cover a cancellation at short notice, try me, see if it's possible.
