Presented by…

Sheffield based Michael J Tinker is a great lover of stories which makes him right at home within the folk world. Delivered with “guitar-plucking [that] evokes the celestial qualities of a harp” (Sheffield Telegraph) and even solo voice, his songs will make you think, laugh and maybe even shed a tear.

 

 

 

Michael has also supported Lucy Ward, Ewan McLennan and the Albion Band and performed around the UK and abroad. Tonight Michael will be joined by Ella Sprung on fiddle/nyckleharpa/vocals and Simon Dumpleton on accordion/vocals

 

Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith play traditional and original folksong of the British Isles. They tell stories of hardship, joy, struggle and celebration held together with driving banjo and guitar arrangements and close vocal harmonies.

 

They have both been heavily influenced by the songs and singers of East Anglia, where they both grew up, but their music also reflects the diversity of voices within the folk and acoustic world. They weave traditional English folksong with Irish, Scottish and American tunes, and their own compositions draw on many different styles.
