Feast of Folk

Friday 14 June at 7.30

An evening of traditional and contemporary folk music

Back by popular demand, our line up for this evening includes:

  • Judy Dunlop, a member of the Albion Band in the early 1990s, and still one of  British folk music’s top vocalists. Accompanied by Jon Scaife on guitar.
  • Peter Burnett, providing his own inimitable take on folk singing
  • Pete Garratt, Ken Atkinson and Geoff Heppell providing solo and three-part harmony singing along with stunning accompaniment
  • The Offshoot Band Jon Scaife, Charlie Smallwood and Geof Trend playing ceilidh music on lots of strings — their mandolin pieces a delight to hear. Between them they’ve recorded over a dozen albums and performed in Western Europe, America and Asia
  • Our artists this year weill also be joined by a further outstanding singer, Steve Thomason
