Dave Webber and Anni Fentiman make a welcome return to Norwich on Friday 8 July. Dave and Anni joined forces in 1985, after spending many years around the folk club scene, in which time they featured on several albums made by other performers. Anni has developed a specialist repertoire of songs originating from her native North East, and Dave has been writing songs in traditional vein since 1982, many of which are widely sung and have become part of the general song repertoire of singers all over the world. ‘If you love traditional music delivered with strength, clarity and simplicity, you certainly won’t be disappointed with this duo’ (Cornwall Folk Festival).
In support is Rosie Hood, an unaccompanied singer originally from Malmesbury and another of this year’s New Roots finalists. Rosie is fairly new to solo performance, having previously sung in bands and throughout school. Her experience of sessions and folk clubs has sparked an interest in the history of the songs she sings, particularly those of her native Wiltshire and those collected by Alfred Williams. Rosie also sings a variety of songs from around the British Isles, learned from many sources, including the sessions of Glasgow (where she studies Design) and Sidmouth Folk Week’s legendary Middle Bar.
Tickets £8 (non-members). Reservations by email on the form found on the ‘About the Club’ page. Bring your own refreshments. Hot drinks available.
