Coming up at TwickFolk:

7 January: New Year Singaround: bring a song or two, join in, or just come and listen!

Tickets £3 on the door or £3 + 30p booking fee if booked online

GuitarsSue Graves, one of the resident singers at TwickFolk, says: “All the music at TwickFolk is live and our singarounds give everyone a chance to sing, play an instrument, recite a poem or tell a story.

“If you just want to sit back and listen, that’s also fine. In fact listening, and paying attention to the words and music, is what an evening of folk is all about.

“Taking part in a singaround isn’t at all like an open mike session or performing on stage. There won’t be a microphone.

“We welcome musical contributions from everyone, young or old – and we will be encouraging everyone to join in with the choruses.”
Non-performers are welcome to come and there is no need to pre-book.

His third full length album, ‘The Wide Afternoon’, assembles 11 new songs, rooted in folk and blues traditions, telling real and imagined stories

The result is a bigger, darker record than Jack’s previous, critically acclaimed offering, 2012’s The Flame and the Pelican (***** Maverick, The Telegraph top 10 Roots/Folk albums of the year). ‘The Wide Afternoon’ is an album of mystery and melody, set against the expansive sound-palette and intricate arrangements of Gerry Diver (Sam Lee, Lisa Knapp, Tom Robinson). Gerry’s swooping violins and eerie percussion are at the record’s sonic heart, perfectly offsetting songs of dangerous men, literary women, stolen horses and vanished birds. All are delivered in husky, intimate vocals and fluid guitar picking
