2020 Programme (so far)…

 

Wildwood Kin + Will Varley and more
Friday August 28th 2020 – 7pm // The Civic Hall, Cottingham

Wildwood Kin made quite the impression with their 2017 debut album ‘Turning Tides’. A growing fanbase fell under their spell in the process, pushing them past the 20 million streams landmark. Now the trio return with their self-titled second album. Released this summer, it’s as natural as it is accomplished. Singer-songwriter Will Varley has come a long way since his early days haunting the open mics of South London and busking around on The Underground. After releasing his 5th studio album in 2018, his largely sold out UK tour drew to a close with a triumphant show at London’s legendary Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

Ferocious Dog + special guests
Saturday August 29th 2020 – 7pm // The Civic Hall, Cottingham

Ferocious Dog offer a full-on six-piece sound that encompasses folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations. The combination of instruments creates a palette of sound that offers infinite variations: going in hard to get the audience up and moving, or slipping into melodic passages and dub-like fusions.

Snake Davis: Burden of Paradise
Saturday August 29th 2020 – 7.30pm // The Back Room, Cottingham

Sax man Snake hits the road again in 2020 with his almost acoustic line-up “Burden of Paradise” for a series of intimate concerts. The band was formed seven years ago with three of his very favorite musician friends. Breathtaking skill, warm co-operation and witty anarchic banter. BoP invites its audience into a world of tenderness, virtuosity and human frailty. No drums. Just voice, saxophone and a pulsing engine room of double bass and guitar. BoP’s unique interpretations of evocative songs from Dylan to Dowland are spell-binding. Intimate all seated show, limited to 100 tickets.

Skipinnish + support
Sunday August 30th 2020 – 7pm // The Civic Hall, Cottingham

Celebrating their 21st anniversary in 2020, Skipinnish encompasses the very best of contemporary Celtic music with a unique and sublime mix of chart-topping, self-penned songs and powerful bagpipe, fiddle and accordion-led tune sets. As a result, the band has built a loyal and strong fan base since its formation, by co-founders Andrew Stevenson and Angus MacPhail, on the Isle of Tiree in 1999. It has evolved into an 8-piece that has been named Live Act of the Year on two occasions at the Trad Music Awards. Support to be announced…
