Hot Club du Nord.
Emma Fisk’s Hot Club du Nord bring to life the classic 1930s and 40s repertoire of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s Hot Club de France. Featuring British Jazz Awards Nominee Emma Fisk on violin and the exceptional talents of James Birkett and David Harris (guitars) and Bruce Rollo (double bass), the band encompasses a wealth of experience, knowledge and love of the hot club/ gypsy jazz style.
This is a slightly different music genre to our usual folky bias but we are sure you will be hugely impressed by this group.
As usual, tickets cost £12 and we would encourage you to book well in advance as there is a distinct possibility we may sell out on this one.

April 4th – Twelfth Day
Why limit yourself to a label? That’s the mantra of Twelfth Day, the duo that has been challenging its broad spectrum of listeners with its genre-bending music for almost a decade. Though Catriona Price’s violin and Esther Swift’s pedal harp remain the front and centre of their sound, and the mastery of their instruments is evident, Twelfth Day draws from a more expansive palette than the number of instruments might suggest, leaving a lasting impact on the listener.

November 14th – Broom Bezzums.
Gutsy folk with a critical eye, a sense of fun and a desire for a better future. Multi award-winning folk duo Broom Bezzums match the quality of their songwriting with skilful musicianship and spine-tingling vocals to deliver performances you can’t forget. In their songs and anecdotes, the pair draw on their unconventional biographies to let audiences experience their music as they do.
Andrew Cadie is a fiddler, piper and guitarist with a distinctive style, based on the traditions of his native Northumberland. Mark Bloomer is a ‘reformed’ drummer and founder member of Babylon Zoo, who topped the charts worldwide in the 1990s with ‘Spaceman’. Four years spent in Ireland led him to move on to guitar and mandola, which he plays with a wrought-iron Black Country backbeat. After working their separate ways across Europe as young street musicians Andrew and Mark settled in Germany, where they met and formed Broom Bezzums in 2005. Now, with five albums to their name and a busy touring schedule, the duo are one of the top acts of the German folk scene, headlining festivals and appearing regularly on TV and radio.
