 Granny’s Attic. £8 (£6 Mem)

Granny’s Attic are a fantastic folk trio who play the tradition with verve, energy and their own inimitable style. Formed in 2009, they have since played at clubs and festivals up and down the country, and have been heralded for their lively performances and maturity beyond their years in their delivery and selection of traditional songs.. https://www.grannysattic.org.uk/

This Week 21st September 2018



12th October Damien Barber and Mike Wilson.

 £10 (£8 Mem) Two of the finest exponents of Traditional Song in the United Kingdom. Damien is a stylish and distinctive singer, either unaccompanied or using guitar or concertina. Though he has lived for a long time in West Yorkshire he retains a strong East Anglian identity. Mike Wilson is the youngest member of the Wilson Family, the powerful Teesside singing siblings who have raised the rafters at many a festival or folk club event. His musical heritage is emphatically that of the North East – rural and industrial folk song both traditional and modern. www.damienandmike.co.uk
