OUR GUESTS FOR 2018...
   

30th May 2018: CAROLYN ROBSON/IRIS BISHOP

Carolyn Robson is a professional singer and musician specialising in traditional folk song and dance. Her extensive repertoire includes songs from her native Northumberland and Scotland, as well as other parts of the British Isles. She will be accompanied by Iris Bishop, regarded by many as one of the finest players of the Duet Concertina. We are hoping that Carolyn will also offer a singing workshop for folk club members.

NEIL DAVEY & STEPHEN HUNT
+ KATIE KIRK & RICK WILLIAMS  

Penzance Folk Club are proud to be supporting the Golowan Festival 2018. We are delighted to present our Golowan Concert at The Acorn Theatre, Penzance, on Wed June 20th, and to sponsor the Folk Stage on Quay Fair Day (Sun 24 June).

Penzance Folk Club Golowan Concert
Our exciting double bill features two contrasting duos, each with strong local connections. Neil Davey and Steve Hunt are known as exponents of Cornish traditional music, but draw on a broad repertoire of Celtic styles, English folk songs and early Americana, performed on a variety of stringed instruments.

Katie Kirk and Rick Williams have been called the hidden gem of the Cornish folk scene: Katie’s powerful voice and stage presence is complemented by Rick’s sensitive guitar; his compositions include original settings to poems by Cornish poet Charles Causley.

Jess and Richard Arrowsmith are traditional musicians (fiddle & melodeon) whose powerful vocals, subtle accompaniments and lively tunes will have you laughing, crying and joining in with the choruses. Expect songs about smugglers, miners, murderers and even the perils of childbirth. Jess's original songs range from humorous to moving, and are performed by many artists. The duo’s engaging stage presence will ensure an enjoyable evening.
