SUNDAY | CLUB TENT
All the artists featured in the Black Fen Folk Club concert have their roots firmly in the Black Fen folk club which meets every Sunday in the NCI club, Holland St and, when not performing elsewhere, take part regularly in our Open Stage evenings.
In addition to our club regulars we will also be inviting a group of musicians from the Black Fen main bar tune sessions on Thursday and Friday to open the concert and three or more artists chosen from those who come along to our Flowergarden singarounds on Saturday and Sunday.
Tunes from the British Isles
When FRoots said back in 2014 that ‘Randall possesses a truly classic English voice – comparable with the very best’ they were not exaggerating. That ‘voice’ has continued to develop and when backed by her own very competent guitar work is truly unique.
Time Mellor is equally at home with Northumbrian smallpipes, guitar, melodeon or singing ‘acapella’. Most of his songs and tunes are based on traditional folk songs from the British Isles but include a few of his own compositions reflecting contemporary issues and themes.
Maisie Blades have been entertaining together at Black Fen Open Stage evenings for the last year, developing into a group with a pleasant mid-atlantic feel.
Cambridge and Walker
Cambridge and Walker formed in 2016 when they realised a mutual love of old songs and harmony singing. David and Jenna, accompanied by guitars and squeezeboxes, have performed extensively in East Anglia and have become firm favourites on the local scene with their sets being described as ‘exquisite’ and ‘stunning’. 2019 sees them adding their first self-penned songs to the mix of traditional and contemporary favourites and recording their first album later in the year. www.cambridgeandwalker.com
