Three of the leading lights of their generation:

Benji Kirkpatrick (Seth Lakeman Band, Steeleye Span, Bellowhead), Saul Rose (Eliza Carthy & The Wayward Band, Waterson:Carthy, Whapweazel) and Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Belshazzar’s Feast). Deeply rooted in the English tradition, they are brought together in a virtuosic display of strong vocals, musicianship and testosterone.

WHY? ‘One of Britain’s outstanding folk bands’ The Guardian

Cara Dillon - Upon a Winter's Night

Cara and her band capture the mystery of Christmas with a collection of songs ancient and modern.

They weave Celtic and folksy rhythms alongside reverent and atmospheric carols while Cara holds the darkness at bay with the purity of her voice.
The Christmas story is retold with genuine wonder and celebrated with the dignity, passion and beauty it deserves. Christmas is one of Cara’s passions and her live show and album only go to prove it.

WHY? ‘Simple and stunning’ The Sunday Times
‘An instant Christmas classic’ BBC
‘There’s enchantment aplenty’ ★ ★ ★ ★ The Independent
‘A reminder of the real meaning of the Festive Season, uplifting and inspirational” The Daily Echo

Megan Henwood & Findlay Napier

Findlay Napier is one of the finest songwriters and storytellers of the contemporary Scottish folk scene. Their collaboration has led to the creation of songs about a hermit known as The North Pond Phantom, Georg Cantor’s struggle with infinity, maths and God and something about shepherds and leaders!

Pat Abernethy (from Belfast) and Dave Marsden (from Dublin), return to their Irish roots for this intimate evening of music and stories. All the songs reflect the Irish spirit in its many forms - nostalgia, romance, emigration, politics, loss, humour and more. Between songs, you will also be regaled with stories from their days in Ireland.

WHY? Featuring songs from the likes of Paul Brady, Tommy Makem, The Furey Brothers, Van Morrison and Val Doonican


The Askew Sisters

Emily Askew and Hazel Askew (Lady Maisery) have become known as two of the foremost performers and interpreters of English folk music. They rework and reinterpret songs and balladry, creating breath-taking arrangements. Both are skilled multi-instrumentalists and expert players of dance music - using fiddles, melodeons, concertina and cello in their innate drive to bring old dance music to life.

WHY? ‘This is traditional folk in a fine, fresh form’ The Telegraph
