The Whispering Road

Sunday 26 April, 8pm. Tickets £10 (Under 18's £6.50) - BOOK NOW

A riotous roller-coaster of a story, soaring from tenderness to wild hilarity, all in a perfectly formed folk tale. 
Drawing on the rich heritage of Scandinavian myths and stories, The Whispering Road blends Nick Hennessey’s spellbinding storytelling with Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer’s experience in the Swedish folk music scene. ‘The Whispering Road” tells the story of hope in the darkness, of two strangers bound by a ring and of the one who could not love.
The first half of the show is a lively and fun mini folk gig introducing you to the music of Scandinavia with Vicki Swan on the strange Swedish nyckelharpa, Nick Hennessey on harp and vocals and Jonny Dyer on guitars, kohorn (cow horn) and accordian. The second half is the story of The Whispering Road - which has been called a ''Troll de Force''! It's fast, it's funny, it's scary - it contains magical beasts, castles, a journey to solve a mystery and lots and lots of Trolls! 
The show content is suitable for children, 8+. http://www.seriouskitchen.co.uk/
In association with Shindig and Live and Local. Surprising Shows in Surprising Places.

Fleecey Folk: Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman

Sunday 17th May, 8pm. Tickets £12 BOOK NOW

 Two of the British folk scene’s most accomplished performers, Kathryn and Sean have graced stages the world over in a number of guises, however, the intimacy and strength of passion shown as a duo, combined with an eclectic repertoire ensures a rare treat.

With a story that includes music making with the likes of Seth Lakeman, Cara Dillon, Levellers, Kate Rusby and Show of Hands, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have established themselves as pillars of modern British folk.
On latest album “Hidden People” Kathryn says; “These are stories, first and foremost,” but she warns: “My home-life is so ‘roses round the cottage door’, that I tend to prefer music with an edginess, so some of the tracks on the album are quite dark and brooding, to say the least.” The messages and meanings behind these songs belong to the “hidden people”.
