For fans of folk music we have a trio of treats in store this season.  All three of these gigs are likely to be a little bit special, so well worth making the journey.

On Friday 20th February, we welcome Andy Cutting, Sam Sweeney and Rob Harbron in their new collaboration, Leveret

This is music that is firmly rooted in the English tradition but brings something fresh, with ancient tunes sitting harmoniously alongside new compositions. Sophisticated and honest, measured yet spontaneous, this coming together of three respected members of the contemporary folk scene promises to be poignant and beautiful.

Next up on 5th March is the inimitable Martha Tilston, who (according to the Guardian) “has carved her niche in the English folk scene with sharp, original songs that dissect the modern world.” 

We are really looking forward to hearing songs from Martha’s new album “The Sea”.

And to round off a month  of beautiful music and original songwriting, we will welcome Chris Wood on Thursday 12th March.

Described by MOJO as  “a rarefied talent, both as writer and interpreter”, Chris  has worked and collaborated with a long list of artists, most recently Dizraeli, Billy Bragg, Eliza and Martin Carthy in Simon Emerson’s Imagined Village. His duet with Eliza added to the “Villager’s” winning another Folk Award for “Best Traditional Song”.
