We look forward to welcoming back the winners of the Best Duo in the BBC Radio 2  Folk Awards 2011, Nancy Kerr and James Fagan, particularly since their touring together as a duo will become less frequent as the boys grow up. You probably already know many of their songs and if you haven’t come across them before, both fiddler Nancy and bouzouki-player James grew up in the folk tradition – Nancy is the daughter of Sandra Kerr and James is part of the Australian Fagan Family. See more here: Living Tradition article. Recently James has been playing with The Cara Dillon Band and Nancy’s new CD ‘Sweet Visitor’ is released on 21 July.

Tickets £11 (members £8) are SOLD OUT. Bring your own drinks – fine ales available across the road, with teas and coffee in the kitchen.

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.
