7pm – 8.30pm. Evening Concert with Richard Navarro. Evocative and uplifting, the music of Richard Navarro takes the folk traditions of melody and storytelling and supercharges them through live looping and improvisation. He will be performing for us in an acoustic set with his collaborator Nicholas Thurston on double bass. Richard’s songs have been described as ‘wondrously catchy’, combining ‘elements of folk and jazz with a sprinkling of magic to create an off-kilter mix of gorgeous weirdness.’ Richard is currently supporting Joan Armatrading on a UK tour while also touring with his own recently released album ‘Let Go Light’.
9.00pm. The Afterparty BarnDance with Fiddlefit. Fiddlefit are a marvellous duo bringing barn dancing to the next level, with Bill on guitar and vocals, Judith on fiddle.
