30 October: KELLEY McRAE DUO (USA): Heartfelt Americana + Ben Sures (CAN)

Tickets £11 on the door or £11 + £1.10 booking fee if booked online

Kelley McRae Duo are making a welcome return to TwickFolk following their visit last April. The duo have played shows coast to coast across the United States and Europe and are returning to promote their new album The Wayside.

Says singer/songwriter Kelley McRae, who performs as a duo with her husband Matt Casteilein: “The Wayside is the place at the side of the road where things get left behind, or where you go to rest awhile, or where you go find something you lost along the way.” McRae’s songs sip life from the tension between holding on and letting go, blooming in their rich search for truths.

Chris, Terry and Doug formed Hunter Muskett in 1969 whilst still at college. The band was lucky in having access to the clubs and colleges of London, including The Marquee and The Troubadour where they were finally spotted. Within a year they were signed by Decca producer Kim Margolis and booked into the company’s West Hampstead studios alongside bassist Danny Thompson. Following the release of the first album in late 1970 bass-player Rog Trevitt completed the line-up. With their studies now finished the new four-piece finally went on the road full-time, evolving from a fully acoustic band to using electric guitars, drums and on their second album, synthesizers.
