FOXGLOVE TRIO: English and Welsh musicians unite with songs from around the British Isles

Date/Time Sun 05 Mar 2017 7:45 PM

Price Online - £10 + £1 booking fee; On The Door - £10


The Foxglove Trio join us for a St David’s Day concert. Patrick, Ffion and Cathy bring together a wealth of talent and diverse backgrounds. Cathy Mason is a music teacher who limits herself in the trio to singing, and playing cello and guitar. Ffion Mair was awarded Best Celtic Folk Singer at Llangollen Eisteddfod 2011; she plays the whistle and brings a bit of bodhran to boot. Patrick Dean plays melodeon, cello and concertina; he is also part of ceilidh band ‘The Spring Heeled Jacks’.

The trio’s performances contain self-penned songs, traditional songs and pieces that merge music and lyrics old, new, borrowed and blue (to borrow a phrase).

Last time we invited the Foxgloves to TwickFolk, Cathy was unable to join them, so we’re looking forward to the full line-up joining us this year.
