Apologies but this
event has been wrongly listed in the Folk Diary as an Open Floor night.
There will be floor spots, as usual but we are very much looking
forward to our guests as well. Will Pound and Dan Walsh are two of the
most exciting and unique young musicians on today's music scene and produce a
unique sound on banjo and harmonica. Combined with their fine songs the
result is an enthralling mix of funk, bluegrass, English, Scottish and Irish
folk, blues and even Middle Eastern sounds. Prepare to be astonished by
stunning vocals, frailing banjo wizardry and sounds you didnít think were
possible on harmonica and their ability to encompass an amazing array of

performer who we are looking forward to hearing. Victoria Vox, has been
warming the hearts of her audience across the United States, Canada,
Australia and Europe. Her songs are honest, moving, but also light-hearted.

and rhythmic ukulele technique. Since 2006, she has been a highlight at
ukulele and folk festivals around the world, where she both performs and
gives workshops to the budding ukulele player.

Sunday 20th Nov Barron Brady
comprising Ros Brady and Si Barron are contemporary songwriters and
interpreters of traditional English folk song. They uphold the richness of
the British folk tradition with superbly crafted self-written songs and fine
interpretations of English folk song, all beautifully sung with great
sincerity and with impeccable musical accompaniment. Their beguiling lyrics
draw upon the stories, legends and folklore of the South-West.
Drawn to strongly narrative songs with subjects ranging from Devon legend to
contemporary rural reportage they invite the listener to accompany them
through strange landscapes whose denizens include coffee drinking Mermaids,
corn mowing Devils, flying highwaymen and disappearing Hedgerows.
They have a dynamic acoustic style combining joy and verve in performance
with an assured stage presence garnered from five years of performing
Simonís ballistic fingerstyle guitar complemented by Rosalindís harmonium and
whistles underlines their harmony singing.
