One of our favourite performers at our Lincoln venue, a man-with-a-guitar who we decided to share with Faldingworth.  Gentle, funny and wise...always a delight.

First seen at Warwick Festival this summer, a trio of charming ladies, with funny, sad, delightful songs and harmonies...with just a touch of female emancipation!!...they sung in the pouring rain and wind and kept their audience...what better accolade?


MY SWEET PATOOTIE (£11)

Had them before....and would have them again.  An excellent duo on guitar and fiddle with a very entertaining set of songs and reminiscences.  A good representation of where the Canadian folk scene is now, we are fortunate to have them as part of their third UK tour.

Tom is a Geordie fiddler and singer who has been around a very long time and if you do festivals you might well have heard him somewhere, sometime.  He has a lovely litling soft baritone and a great stage presence and accompanies himself very sweetly on the fiddle.  David Newey is a great player and definitely gilds the lily!

CHRISTMAS 2019

Faldingworth's favourite...Anthony John Clarke has been booked for our Christmas Concert 28 DECEMBER 2019.

Plan your Christmas accordingly!!

WE've just seen him at Cromer Festival and he gave a cracking performance and had them rolling in the aisles as well as pulling their heartstrings.

You might want to know why we booked these artists…./more about theses artists, so here goes….

WE NEVER BOOK ARTISTS WITHOUT SEEING THEM PERFORM LIVE FIRST….

...we are looking for quality of musicianship and empathy with the audience….however much we love some artists, we have to believe our audience will too or else we know we can't sell them….

…we believe in giving a varied programme of content and artists, mainly showcasing folk music but interspersing that with some blues and roots.  Our programme reflects a balance between returning artists at audience requests and new artists that have not previously performed at Faldingworth. 

COLUM SANDS
Saturday 21 September 2019
There is something about Colum Sands....he seems on first acquaintance such a quiet, sort of an unspectacular performer.  Then his songs, which are really stories start to draw you in ...and you could listen to him all night.  One of my favourites.

DAISY BELL
Saturday 12 October 2019
Three clear worded, very harmonious ladies first seen at Warwick singing in the rain this summer.  I love that they do some musical hall type songs, but every song they sing has words worth listening to.....

MY SWEET PATOUTIE
Saturday 2 November 2019
Seen quite a few times now and even enjoyed by my garage playing DJ son-in-law, who usually doesn't do folk music, we always find them entertaining and the time passes quickly in their presence...not English folk music...but Canadian and who cares anyway?  We first booked them a little hesitantly but happily they have always gone down well.  Definitely a bit different.

TOM McCONVILLE and DAVID NEWEY
Saturday 30 November 2019

Tom was one of the first artists I saw when I was introduced to folk music.  He has played with various artists over the years and knows how to work an audience like an old pro.  I particularly enjoyed his partnership with Pauline Cato.  But this promises to be a good duo and Andy came back from hearing them play together full of praise.
