Dan Walsh Banjo

Monday 5 February 2018

Nominated for best musician at last year’s BBC Folk Awards, Dan Walsh combines ‘virtuoso playing and winning songwriting’ (MORNING STAR).

Describing what Dan does is no easy task but at the heart of it is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves – all performed with his unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo helping to challenge all preconceptions about the instrument. Add to all that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour and the result is a truly memorable live show which has wowed audiences across the world from intimate seated rooms to huge dancing crowds in festival fields.

 


Crooked Weather

Saturday 31 March

Crooked Weather are a rock infused folk band, based out of a tragic mustard 1979 campervan. They hail from the depths of East Yorkshire, with the lilting harmonies of Holly & Will at the core. Their original music, steeped in the folk revival of the late 60’s, has a raw, modern edge, augmented by Tom and Dave: a fierce rhythm section.

Building up a steady reputation for their unpredictably dynamic live shows, they’ve supported the likes of Jeffrey Lewis, Micheal Chapman, Mike Heron (Incredible String Band), Jim Jones, Dick Gaughan, Roddy Woomble & Bridget St. John.


We love being a venue for live music – especially our summer time open air concerts (or maybe our intimate candlelit winter concerts with the moon behind the cathedral window…). So please get in touch if you are interested in performing here – we would love to hear from you.

We also like hearing from people who have different ideas for events or something they would like to see us do here as your local venue. Drop us a line.
