Sun 19 Mar 2023
*This is a rescheduled date, moved from 9th Oct 2022.
Hannah James and Toby Kuhn are a dazzling combination. Hannah is an award-winning musician, dancer, songwriter and singer, a creative force renowned for her work with Lady Maisery, Seasick Steve, Maddy Prior and Songs of Separation with Eliza Carthy, Karine Polwart and others. Toby is a globetrotting French cellist whose post-classical, inventive, improvisational playing combines beautifully with Hannah to create a charismatic, playful chemistry. If you’re looking for warmth, honesty and musical excellence, look no further. This folk is full of soul.
Devon Youth Folk Ensemble play folk tunes with a focus on the West Country. All aged between 13 and 18, members come from across the county to play together and learn the techniques of folk music. They choose and arrange their tunes, and the group is run in a collaborative way with their leader Jon Dyer (Gadarene, Crowdy-Kit). Devon Youth Folk Ensemble is a Wren Music project, supported by the Devon and Torbay Music Education Hub.
