A reminder that we have the first of two extra summer concerts coming up on Monday July 4th with Keith Kendrick and Sylvia Needham, and tickets are available from our website.
As long time stalwarts of the Derbyshire folk scene they are well known in England and great ambassadors for English music wherever they tour. Both fine singers and concertina players, they bring a repertoire of great songs--old, new and timeless--to each performance.
Keith and Sylvia sing mainly English traditional and traditionally influenced contemporary songs and work extensively all over the UK, Europe and across the globe. Both have very wide ranging repertoires, strong voices and uncannily compatible and complimentary styles of delivery, affording an exciting enhancement in duo and between them produce a striking acapella harmony sound. With a formidable 40+ years history of performing experience behind them, their recorded work is matched only by their live gigs which are always a vocal and musical revelation as well as a hoot! They also frequently accompany themselves and play lively dance tunes on three different systems of the only English invented musical instrument – the Concertina.
Come listen and sing along with two of the best! Here are the details:
Monday July 4th, 8pm. Doors open 7:30
Rosemount Community Hall, 41 Rosemount.
