A listing of confirmed concerts in the hall for 2019/20 can be found as a PDF file here. To avoid disappointment, please book early for any concert as the venue capacity is only 100, so we often sell out.
Video clips and reviews of selected previous concerts can be found here.
Need somewhere to stay? There are several B&Bs and hotels nearby – the nearest are on this link. There are also many self-catering holiday cottages, although these will often require a minimum 2-night stay (link here). For more village options (caravan sites, youth hostels etc), click here.
Saturday 14 September – BELLA, POLLY & THE MAGPIES
Celtic Connections Danny Kyle Award winner Bella Gaffney (guitar, vocals) and acclaimed mandolin player Polly Bolton came together last year, fusing Celtic folk with bluegrass in an exciting new collaboration. Joined by acclaimed cellist Sarah Smout and Holly Brandon (fiddle) for 2019, this all-female four-piece is already establishing a fearsome reputation for their glittering live shows, onstage rapport and genre-busting original and traditional material.
Polly Bolton first picked up the mandolin as a child and has been touring internationally in various line ups since her early teens. Bella Gaffney writes folk inspired songs which she performs along with her own original arrangements of traditional pieces. She released her second solo album ‘Heaven Knows’ in 2018.
“A natural chemistry… all three voices blend and harmonise beautifully… the mix of styles offers so much promise.” Folk Radio UK
“Very well liked by the punters! A proper hit.” Bev Burton, Cambridge Folk Festival
