Please note: the club is closed for the summer months of June, July and August 2018
Saturday 1 September 2018 – Lis Stewart, Jess Cahill & Chris Dyer plus floor spots
Lis Stewart, Jess Cahill and Chris Dyer come together in unusual and rather marvellous combinations of nyckelharpa, fiddles, hurdy-gurdy, duet concertina, melodeon and voice. They will be performing their own arrangements of traditional dance tunes and songs from France, Scandinavia and England, along with some more contemporary material.
Saturday 6 October 2018 – Woven Sky plus floor spots
Woven Sky perform songs from Sussex, the UK and across the Atlantic with accompaniment on guitar, banjo and fiddle. Dan Stewart, Sarah Hill and Guy Hayes interpret diverse sources from traditional singers, Sacred Harp and Appalachian fiddle music. With these broad influences they deliver pared-down, uncomplicated renditions staying true to the songs and the singers that passed them down.
Saturday 3 November 2018 – The Ninetree Stumblers plus floor spots
Born a hundred years late and 4000 miles too far East, The Ninetree Stumblers dredge up nuggets of the Old Weird America from the crackly grooves of 78RPM shellac. Three multi-instrumentalists from Bristol, the band trade guitars, banjos, fiddles and more, clambering from song to song through shows that set Moonshine-fuelled hoedowns against sombre Baptist hymns, cockeyed ragtime and sweetheart waltzes.
