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!

ANTHONY JOHN CLARKE
Saturday 28 December 2019 (£11)

Plan your Christmas accordingly!!  THINKING OF DOING LIGHT REFRESHMENTS....watch this space.

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.

______________________________
 WHY WE BOOKED THESE ARTISTS....

...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. 



MY SWEET PATOOTIE
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.

OUR SUPPORT ARTISTS:

I thought it was time we said a bit more about them.  Usually from Lincolnshire we are very proud of them and grateful that they support us in the way they do.

I am going to start with 
Pete and Helen Wray
....who some people are beginning to say are worthy of a main artist slot...

....so that is the start and more to follow!

COMPERE
is now Sue Dewsbury (though very grateful to Tom Lane and Alan Ritson for filling in for us when we can't have a Sue).

She makes the evening go with a swing with her wit and repartee....and appreciation of the artists.

SOUND
is Pete Wray, who is a perfectionist, thank goodness.
