A series presenting some of the very best acoustic folk and roots acts in the country.

 

 

Sat Apr 27       CEILIDH with NEDRON’S JIG.

You’ll be in safe hands with the expert calling and playing from our band Nedron’s Jig. Between them they play squeezebox, fiddle, mandola and bass. The caller will guide you through the dances and the four musicians are two from the folk super-group Feast of Fiddles and two from the band Phungus.

A social evening of dance in our 18th century Long Barn - no experience necessary!

 

Thur May 9     BELSHAZZAR’S FEAST.

Paul Sartin (Bellowhead) on oboe, violin, vocals and Paul Hutchinson (Hoover the Dog) on accordion are Belshazzar’s Feast. The duo start with traditional folk music, add a touch of classical and jazz, throw in a bit of pop and music hall, and top it off with wry humour for a unique live experience. They are breathtaking and wickedly inventive!

A blend of serious musicianship & dedicated subversion, enjoy the danger Living Tradition
