A listing of confirmed concerts in the hall through to June 2020 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.
Sunday 2 February – Stephen Fearing
As one-third of award-winning roots-rock trio, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Canadian singer and guitarist Stephen Fearing has collaborated with many musicians, including Emmylou Harris and Nick Lowe. A highly regarded songwriter, Fearing’s songs have won respect among his peers and music critics, resulting in multiple nominations and awards including a JUNO (Canadian Grammy award). His tours include North America and Europe, including regular visit to the UK. In the last few years, his solo and band performances at the Shrewsbury Folk Festival have been a highlight of the festival season.
His 2017 album Every Soul’s a Sailor was awarded Worldwide Album of the Year by Blues & Roots Radio and he was named Canadian Contemporary Singer of the Year the same year. This month sees the release of his new album, The Unconquerable Past, which has already charted in the specialist music charts such as EuroAmericana.
Hall Committee member Martin Snodin has worked with Stephen Fearing several times in the past. He says “Fearing is a real musical nomad who’s spent countless years on the road performing. He’s a gifted storyteller, a gorgeous singer and top guitarist – he always enthrals audiences. This is a last-minute booking, when we noticed a gap in his tour schedule – hence it’s a Sunday night, which is unusual for us.”
