Newsflash: New event  Fri 15th July  Saltfishforty  Ring of Bells.

 

I have always wanted to bring these guys to Nailsea. Top notch musicians, hugely entertaining and a lot of fun. My wish has been granted. Put it in your diary!!

 

Saltfishforty are a fresh and dynamic duo hailing from the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland. Douglas Montgomery (fiddle/viola) and Brian Cromarty (songs/guitar/mandola) combine the rich traditional music of Orkney with original compositions.  The powerhouse partnership have won a devoted following throughout the UK and beyond.

 

Ukraine: We have decided to do something practical as a Folk Club. From Sunday 15 May we will be running weekly afternoons to enable refugees being hosted to meet up. This will be at the Trinity Centre beside Holy Trinity Church 2-4.30 . 

We will be running fundraisers to support the project. There will be a Ceilidh on Fri 16 September.

If you are interested in becoming involved with the project please email me directly:  david.francis32@outlook.com

Saltfishforty: the music of Orkney

SALTFISHFORTY    

Saltfishforty are a fresh and dynamic duo hailing from the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland. Douglas Montgomery (fiddle/viola) and Brian Cromarty (songs/guitar/mandola) combine the rich traditional music of Orkney with original compositions.

The powerhouse partnership have won a devoted following throughout the UK and beyond, brilliantly transcending the duo format’s conventional confines. Linchpin figures in the currently flourishing revival of Orkney’s traditional music, they unite these deep-rooted sources with an exhilarating breadth of influence and expertise, catalysed by a creative empathy born from decades of friendship.  The result is a sound of equally thrilling raw attack and multi-dimensional richness.

 

Saltfishforty have delighted audiences at many of the world’s top folk festivals including Celtic Connections, Cambridge, HebCelt, Shetland, Lorient in Brittany and Canada’s Celtic Colours, as well as touring to the US and throughout Europe. Their focus on Orkney music takes in traditional, contemporary and original material, boldly cross-fertilised with influences from Americana to East European folk, plus a high-octane whiff of heavy metal.

Tickets £14

Ceilidh at the Tithe Barn

Well we couldn't have a Barn Dance at New Year so we will be having one in the summer!  Great live band and Dave Francis calling so it should be a riot.

There will be a bar but not food ..we want to keep it simple. 

The Folk Club began running a weekly Sunday meeting project in May at the Trinity Centre for Ukrainian refugees and their children who are living locally.

It has been a success but there is more we would like to do to support people who are clearly is a desperate situation.

This Barn dance is one of our fundraising acitivities to support the project.

Tickets £12. Children £6.
