What's coming:

Will Pound

House concert with the young musician widely regarded as the finest harmonica player of his generation as well as  fine melodeon player. ‘A flat out genius harmonica player’ Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2 "I think Will Pound is an utter genius..... A harmonica can't sound like that! Quite the most thrilling gig I've been to in an age. Such interesting material too.... Really, I'm not much interested in the harmonica unless Will Pound or Stevie Wonder are playing " Linda Thompson

ELIZA CARTHY & THE WAYWARD BAND

ELIZA CARTHY & THE WAYWARD BAND

 

Hometown gig for Eliza with her big band playing a lot of new material from their album Big Machine.

‘..the lady who kick-started the still remarkably healthy contemporary British folk scene is celebrating in style’

 ***** The Guardian, Live Review

“There is so much intelligence at Play in these greatest hits… The audience don’t want it to end. And it shouldn’t end. 

This should be a show we can always have – ripping the roof off a marquee at the end of festivals. Because when Eliza Carthy

 is at her best there’s no one better. And this is Eliza Carthy at her best.”
