Dates & Guest Details Friday 30 March 2018 - Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp

Laura & Ted have a no-nonsense approach to traditional English folk song, taking their cues from revival singers such as Frankie Armstrong, Peter Bellamy and the Watersons, and placing an emphasis on strong vocals, tight harmonies and unfussy arrangements.  With repertoire drawn from and inspired by their homes in the North West and East Anglia, expect to hear a distinctive range of songs sung with passion.

Dates & Guest Details Friday 27 April 2018 - CROWS

A highlight of the folk scene from 1978 to 1988, Crows has reformed!  All are well-known and highly respected performers in their own right: Mick Ryan (vocals); Paul Downes (guitar, mando-cello, mandolin, banjo & vocals); James Patterson (guitar & vocals); and Dave Bordewey (fiddle, cittern, & astonishing high harmony vocals).  The combination of strong voices and expert musicianship is unique.


Dates & Guest Details Friday 25 May 2018 - James Hickman & Dan Cassidy

James’s emotive, soaring vocals and driving guitar are complemented by Dan’s ingenious and virtuosic fiddling.  The music of this transatlantic duo bursts with all the humour, heartbreak and excitement of both British and American folk genres.  The lively English wit of James combines with Dan’s bone-dry irony and American drawl as they take us on a dynamic and unforgettable transatlantic journey.
