Steve Turner

Steve Turner - Tuesday, 25th Feb, 2014, 8.00pm

Old pal and a great performer ... Steve's 5th album, his first for 22 years "The Whirligig of Time" was long listed for the BBC folk awards in 2008. His latest album "Rim of the Wheel" was released in spring 2012 and has received rave reviews - Daniel Kidman in  N.E. Folk Roundabout called it "sheer genius a sure contender for one of my folk albums of 2012"  This was backed up by many festival bookings and  re-plays on the radio on the Mike Harding Show Radio 2 and  Late Junction Radio 3 and a full page article in fRoots in July 2012. Expect some great box-playing, expressive and thoughtful singing and great songs. He might even play a stringed thing!

KIrsty law Band

Kirsty Law Band - Tuesday, 11th March, 2014, 8.00pm

Borders-born Kirsty Law has grown up learning traditional songs, mainly in the Scots dialect. She now combines this with her strong interests in songwriting and poetry which has lead to her own self penned work, inspired by the ideas and forms she finds within the tradition. Having just completed a Folk and Traditional Music Bmus at Newcastle University, she has launched into a career of performing and writing, fast becoming noticed as a talent to watch. 

Now starting 'The Kirsty Law Band' where she is accompanied by Rona Wilkie (BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2012) and Marit Falt (Vamm) they create a sound which is charged and exciting whilst resonating with stories, forms and melodies that have withstood the test of time. 

Winter Wikson

Winter Wilson - Tuesday, 8th April, 2014, 8.00pm

After meeting in a pub session, Dave & Kip's first musical collaboration was with folk-rock band Ragtrade, playing a mix of traditional and modern covers, with a few of Dave's original songs. Following the demise of Ragtrade in 1994, a chance offer to play in their local pub (the Cross Keys in Upton, Notts) led to the formation of Winter Wilson. Since that date there have been 6 albums, numerous tours, festival and radio appearances. And a wedding. Today Winter Wilson are known for beautiful songs, beautifully sung. Stunning harmonies, thought-provoking and often challenging lyrics, all held together with a healthy dose of humour.

Stephen and Pernille Quigg - Tuesday, 6th May, 2014, 8.00pm

Very exciting - we all know Stephen through his work woth the McCalmans, with Nick Keir and solo.  He's now alos appearing in duo with his wife, Pernille - a lovely singer with eclectic taste in songs. We are delighted to snaffle them at an early stage in their time of performaing together.  Expect a hugely entertaining eveing of Stephen's customary splendid voice, his usual amusing nonsense and now the added joy of Pernille's singing and playing.

O'Hooley and Twidow

O'Hooley and Twidow - Tuesday, 3rd June, 2014, 8.00pm

Hailed as the best act of the prestigious Cambridge Folk Festival 2012 by The Guardian, and finalists in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2013 for Best Duo; the multi award-winning Belinda O'Hooley (Unthanks, Nic Jones Trio) and Heidi Tidow are now one of the most popular and unique acts on the contemporary folk scene.

Blyde Lasses

Blyde Lasses - Tuesday, 14th October 2014

Blyde Lasses means "glad girls" in Shetland dialect, and they've been playing together as a duo since 2006. The Lasses' performances are as rich in stories as they are in music, and their material offers a glimpse into Shetland's musical tradition. Over the past few years they have enjoyed touring the UK, Ireland, New Zealand, and the UAE. In April 2013, after countless requests for recordings, they released a debut album of traditional, contemporary and self-penned Shetland songs and tunes.
