SPRING 2023 PROGRAMME NOW ON SALE!
*** PLEASE NOTE – OUR SPRING SEASON CONCERTS WILL ALL TAKE PLACE AT OUR NEW VENUE – ST ANDREW’S CHURCH IN KINSON ***
4 MARCH – TOM MOORE & ARCHIE MOSS with support from THE LAST INKLINGS
Tom Moore and Archie Moss are widely regarded as two of the best players and innovators in traditional folk amongst a precociously gifted generation whose aim is to “re-define how British instrumental folk music is made”. With support from our own Leo’s band The Last Inklings whose sound centres around cello, mandolin and vocal harmony.
15 APRIL – BRYONY GRIFFITH & ALICE JONES with support from THOM ASHWORTH
Bryony Griffith and Alice Jones are long-time purveyors and performers of traditional English folk music – united by a mutual fascination with folk song and tune collections from their native county of Yorkshire. With support from Thom Ashworth, equal parts interpreter of traditional song and insightful political songwriter, his powerful tenor voice and the distinctive timbre of his acoustic bass guitar blend into a soundworld that is familiar but uniquely his own.
13 MAY – JIM MORAY
Celebrating his 21st anniversary, we are thrilled to welcome Jim Moray back. A five-time BBC Folk Award winner, Jim Moray is amongst England’s finest interpreters of traditional song. His relentlessly innovative recordings can truly be said to have changed the sound of folk music since the early 2000s, and he has won fans and admirers far outside of the folk scene without ever betraying his traditional roots.
NEW VENUE FOR SPRING 2023
We’re moving to a more intimate venue for our Spring 2023 season – the beautiful St Andrew’s church on Millhams Road, Kinson, Bournemouth BH10 7LN. This charming historic church has been recently modernised with underfloor heating and is fully accessible, is on several bus routes and has parking on site and in the streets and public carparks nearby.
We will also have use of the modern church hall adjacent which offers good toilet facilities, a room we will be using for the bar and a comfortable green room for our artists.
We will continue to run our own bar stocking Southbourne Ales from Poole Hill Brewery, cider, wine and soft drinks.
