Showcase guests at the song session on Friday 14 March will be Nick Wiseman-Ellis and Nic Zuppardi of Triette, both accomplished graduates from the Folk and Tradiitonal Music degree based at Newcastle University. Their distinctive sound is grounded in the tradition of French and Breton dance music, as well as the rich music traditions of Sweden and England, with driving interpretations of traditional material and vivid arrangements influenced by folk dance. They have performed at festivals and folk clubs across Europe, collaborated with Karen Tweed and German folk group Iontach, as well as being finalists in the Swedish Young Folk Band of the Year Awards 2011.
All welcome. Bring songs, tunes and your own drinks. Teas and coffee available in the kitchen. Free entry.
