A message received on the blog site from Margaret Watchorn. Even if you can’t get to the gig (sadly, I won’t be able to), the web site is well worth a visit.
I found your contact details on the wonderful Leicestershire Folk Diary website and wanted to tell you about an event in your area at the end of September.
Andy and I are delighted to be returning to Ludlow to play a concert of traditional music and songs, mainly from Northumberland but with a few Swedish pieces from our travels. There’ll be toe-tapping dance tunes, lyrical slow airs, stories and tales linked to the music and a chance to join in some Northumbrian songs. It’s an ideal chance to see unusual instruments at close quarters and to hear what makes Northumbrian music unique.
Between us, we’ll be playing Northumbrian smallpipes, fiddle, renaissance bagpipes, Swedish pipes, nyckelharpa and guitar.
Date: Thursday 28th September 2017
Venue: Methodist Church, Broad Street, Ludlow
Time: 7.30pm (Doors open at 7.00pm)
Cost: £8 (accompanied children under 12 free) Pay on the Door
