  • A Christmas Carol

    A Christmas Carol

    Thurs 23 Jan, - Sat 25 Jan, 7:30pm
    Tickets £7.50 (£6)
    Bretforton Amateur Dramatic Theatre presents John Mortimer’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’s novel.
    Directed by Alice Heather & Nigel London.
     
    Scrooge had the blackest heart in London; a miser with a love for nothing except money. He was feared and despised everywhere he showed his scowling face. Until one Christmas Eve, Scrooge receives three spectral visitors, encounters the bleakest terror and the richest delight, and learns, at last, the true meaning of Christmas. For Scrooge this will be no Silent Night…

  • Alden Patterson and Dashwood

    Alden Patterson and Dashwood

    Tue 18 Feb, 8pm, £12 

    ★★★★★ Album Of The Year Editors Choice – fROOTS Magazine
     
    Norwich based folk trio Alden Patterson and Dashwood weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, dobro, guitar and mandolin around beautifully written original songs and melodies. The independently-released debut album ‘Call Me Home’ was written and produced at home in Norwich and is lovingly presented in attractive handmade covers, designed and hand-printed by the band. Their music takes influence from folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic with uplifting instrumentals and self-penned songs depicting tales of young travellers, sleepy seas and their affection for home.

  • Josie Duncan and Pablo Lafuente

    Josie Duncan and Pablo Lafuente

    Tue 25 Feb, 8pm, £12 
     
    BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award Winners (2017) Josie Duncan and Pablo Lafuente are a vocal/guitar duo like no other.
    Calling the Isle of Lewis and Spain home respectively, its no wonder their music doesn’t focus on one place, on one of the many strands of Scotland’s web of traditions.
    They are well travelled, and well versed, in music from across the land. On guitar, and vocals in Gaelic, Scots and English, their music is a round tour, where centuries old ballads meet Gaelic puirt a beul, songs from the mines and cotton mills, as well as some original writing.
    Josie’s voice, crystal clear. With its slight island twang, equally at home in any of these domains. Accompanied by Pablo’s dynamic, sensitive guitar playing, they illuminate the lyrics. The music at times sparse and haunting, at others driving and all consuming, leaving audiences stunned.

  • Les Barker

    Les Barker

    Sun 15 Mar, 8pm, £14
    Les Barker writes strange poems and comes originally from Manchester, but he’s now Welsh. He was an accountant before he became a professional idiot. He’s written 77 books, which sell in large numbers at his gigs because people don’t quite believe what they’ve just heard. His poems have spawned a number of folk heroes: Jason and the Arguments, Cosmo the Fairly Accurate Knife Thrower, Captain Indecisive and Spot of the Antarctic, to name but two.
     
    His serious songs have also featured on albums by Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick, and by June Tabor and he made a name for himself on the circuit with his unlikely contribution to the Mrs Ackroyd Band. But it is his side-splitting poems and his elevation of the pun to new heights which guarantees an unforgettable if baffling evening.

    Sun 22 Mar, 8pm, £12

    He is the guy that sings with a cello, a committed songwriter, storyteller and multi-instrumentalist.
