Nancy Kerr and James Fagan on 9 March

James Fagan and Nancy Kerr

We are very pleased to welcome back Nancy Kerr and James Fagan, one of the most established  and respected duos on the folk scene. About to celebrate their fifteenth year of touring, Nancy and James were winners of the Best Duo in the BBC Radio 2  Folk Awards 2011.

As well as being great exponents of their instruments (fiddle, viola and guitar-bouzouki) both are regarded as fine and influential singers. Nancy and James’s version of ‘Dance to Your Daddy’ was recently chosen by choirmaster Gareth Malone as one of his inheritance tracks on Radio 4’s Saturday Live and their new CD, Twice Reflected Sun, is much acclaimed.

Rosie Eade

In support will be a popular regular from the White Horse days, the talented young singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rosie Eade. Hailed as ‘one of the finest new voices on the acoustic scene’ (Burnham-on-Sea Folk Festival), Rosie also sings and plays sax/whistles with Cambridge-based folk-rock band Hedgepig.

Bring your own refreshments. Tea and coffee is available. Please check availability of tickets £10 (members £7) by emailing via the contact on the ‘About the club’ page.
