The Trio Threlfall on 13 April

Sisters Jane and Amanda Threlfall are joined by musician Roger Edwards in fresh and vibrant interpretations of traditional English folk songs: ‘Sometimes delicate, sometimes bold, sometimes beguiling, sometimes refined but always with an ear to the nature of the song’ (English Song and Dance). Their harmonies have been described as ‘faultless’ (Cheltenham Folk Festival). Accompaniment is on bouzouki, fiddle and guitar, augmented by the skillful concertina playing of Roger Edwards.

The trio’s latest album ‘Sweet Nightingale’ was hailed by Mike Harding as being ‘absolutely beautiful. Terrific songs and playing and really tight, unfussy arrangements.’ Tickets £10, book by email via the ‘About the club’ page. Please check availability. Bring your own refreshments. Tea and coffee available.

John Ward and Mario Price on 23 March

He often works solo, but also plays regularly with his musical partner, outstanding violinist Mario Price. Together they perform a highly eclectic mix of John’s original compositions, popular, standard and traditional songs and Mario’s beautiful and high energy instrumentals.
