Welcome the our Spring 2017 concert programme. A sprinkling of much loved favourites and some names new to Nailsea along with the Tuesday music sessions at the Grove which continue to be popular. We hope you find something to come to and enjoy.

Its now unbelievably 30 years since we started folk concerts at the Royal Oak and began what has become Nailsea Folk Club. We really appreciate all the support we have had over the years and it has certainly been a lot of fun. A lot has happened, especially with our involvement with the development of the Barn. Looking into the future and succession planning we recognise the need to involve new, younger faces and try new ideas. We are very keen to hear from anyone who would like to become involved.

So please do come forward and contact me.

 

In the meantime we look forward to seeing you soon.

 

Best wishes David

Touted as one of the finest banjo players in the UK as well as being a superb singer, songwriter and guitarist, Dan Walsh is described as 'the real deal' (UNCUT). He has two critically acclaimed solo albums with another on the way and many tours of the UK and recent successful trips to Canada, Germany, India and New Zealand to his credit. Having made his name with duo Walsh and Pound and now a member of the award winning Urban Folk Quartet, as well as guest appearances on stage and on record with the Levellers and Seth Lakeman, this unique and eclectic musician has stunned audiences across the world.

21 May 17 Moor Ross and Rutter

location: Tithe Barn 8pm

Sun May 21  Moore Ross and Rutter Tithe Barn 8pm £12

 

Moore Moss Rutter is a contemporary trio consisting of Tom Moore (violin), Archie Churchill-Moss (melodeon) and Jack Rutter (guitar and vocals). Their material is often developed from traditional English folk tunes and pieces of their own compositions, which are heavily arranged using elements of folk, jazz, classical and bluegrass .

 

A series of remarkable gigs has heightened the sense of anticipation around the reunion of Jack Rutter (Seth Lakeman Band), Tom Moore (False Lights) and Archie Churchill-Moss (Beyond the Marches) in the trio that won them the 2011 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. The intervening years have seen them play with some of the biggest and best acts in English folk music, and now they reconvene to release the follow-up to their acclaimed, eponymous debut album. Widely regarded as three of the best players of traditional folk amongst a precociously gifted generation, their finely-crafted arrangements wield a rare potency. Their music features ancient traditional material from Britain as well as newly composed tunes and songs, and focuses on their own movements from the countryside to large cities, and the contrasts that come into play, liberally sprinkled with the sound of modern electroacoustic grit. This trio has as much to do with contemporary music as it does with folk or baroque.

3 Sep 17 Teacups

location: Tithe Barn 8pm

Sun Sept  3 Teacups Tithe Barn 8pm £12

The Teacups sang at Nailsea Folk Club last year and the audience was blown away with the virtuosity of their singing and the ringing harmonies of their arrangements.

 Alex Cumming, Kate Locksley, Rosie Calvert and Will Finn met whilst studying on the Folk Degree at the University of Newcastle and formed The Teacups in 2010. It’s an age-old format – a quartet of singers: two men, two women – performing an age-old collection of songs. But The Teacups are new, they’re young, gutsy, and their debut album, One For The Pot, revels in the vibrancy of youth, and all that heartache, or confusion, or euphoria, that goes with it.

James Delarre and Saul Rose combine thrilling fiddle performances with some of the finest melodeon playing. Inspired by more than fifteen years of appearing on the folk music scene, this new duo harnesses all the subtleties of traditional music while producing an exciting and energetic display of musicianship. Together they produce a full range of melodic and harmonic flavour with flowing melodies, rich harmony and considered vocal delivery. As firm friends the joy with which this pair experience music together is hypnotic, captivating and addictive.
