Saturday 2 February 2019 – Old Time Wasters plus floor spots
The Old Time Wasters play and sing American traditional old-time music and songs drawn from the dark and dusty corners of the 20s and 30s string band repertoire, with the occasional detour into English music-hall. Their often eccentric and amusing selections are complemented with rock-solid rhythm and infectious three-part harmonies.
Saturday 9 March 2019 (NOT THE FIRST SATURDAY!) – Brazen Thieves plus floor spots
Sisters Laura (vocals/violin) and Rebecca (vocals/guitar/concertina) were raised on folk music. They began their recent foray into folk by adapting songs and arrangements originally selected by their father, Clive Woolf, for his sets when he was playing on the scene in the late 60s/early 70s. This inspired the name Brazen Thieves. Together as a quartet with Mark (guitar) and Lucy (vocals/cello), Brazen Thieves combine contemporary and classical influences to create new and interesting takes on traditional songs, with a strong emphasis on harmony singing.
