Saturday 15 June 2019 8pm - Edgelarks Album Launch Party! - West Town Farm, Ide, Exeter EX2 9TG
Join Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin to launch their new album, Feather, with a party at beautiful West Town Farm. In April 2018, Edgelarks retreated to a remote cottage in Ulpha, western Cumbria. They breathed in the mountain view, banked up the fire, and took their instruments out of their cases. Then they sat down, and wrote. Tired of the navel-gazing tendencies of sad song writing, and the terrible events frequently depicted in the folk ballad tradition, they decided to turn their attention to an oft overlooked but vital facet of our lives: hope. Swiftly, a set of songs and tunes emerged. Stories of wonder from the natural world; tales of rejoicing and long lost returns; and simple thanksgiving for their own surroundings and place in the landscape. Informed by world rhythms, British folk roots, and the duo's penchant for making as much noise as possible with only two people, the album is an upbeat celebration, an incitement to hope.

With hypnotic finger-style guitar melodies she moves swiftly and lightly over the guitar, an exacting technique applying all five fingers to plucking patterns that build immersive melodies.

Sunday 14 July 2019 8pm - Gigspanner Big Band - Calstock Arts, The Old Chapel, Sand Lane, Calstock PL18 9QX (map)
Two of our most popular bands come together for one exceptional performance. Gigspanner, formed by multi-award winning fiddle player Peter Knight (ex-Steeleye Span), has established a reputation as one of the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene. BBC Folk Award winners (Best Duo), Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin are also well known at Calstock Arts. Their appearances together as the Gigspanner Big Band are a rare, but highly sought after affair, thanks to performances of dazzling musicianship and arresting on stage chemistry. Taking self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles and beyond, with the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, they produce richly atmospheric arrangements layered within a wealth of subliminal musical influences. “They don’t play together very often, but when they do it’s spectacular” 5***** R2 Magazine. www.calstockarts.org.

Sunday 14 July 2019 7.30pm - Wille & The Bandits - St Mary's Parish Church, Kingskerswell TQ12 5LD (map)
An acoustic evening with Wille & The Bandits. “Wille and the Bandits are taking roots music to a new level” Rootstime Magazine. Wille and the Bandits’ music covers a wide range of genres from Folk and World music to Blues and Rock. With the versatility of Wille’s lap steel and guitar playing, the rhythmic diversity of percussionist Andrew Naumann and the sonic range of Matt’s Upright bass and six string electric bass, they always keep audiences guessing. Often likened to the greats of the 70’s such as Led Zeppelin, Santana and Pink Floyd, this comparison, although bold, only scrapes the surface of the Bands influences and sound.

From the foot of Mount Tamalpais, just north of San Francisco and east of the Pacific shore, to East Nashville’s stubbornly independent community of young artists and musicians, singer/songwriter Don Gallardo’s path has always steered clear of the mainstream. Traces of his journey illuminate his newest album. Begin with its title, Still Here, an assertion that he has learned from life and expressed its lessons in songs. Many have taken note already, including MOJO Magazine (“Gallardo nods to country’s most distant past while sounding like its very near future”), No Depression (“highly recommended to fans of great songwriters”) and, several times, Rolling Stone, who most recently heralded him as one of “10 Artists You Need To Know” in 2017.

'Fire and Fleet' Tour. One of the most exciting collaborations in folk music, June Tabor & Oysterband, resumes this autumn for a major tour. With separate distinguished careers to pursue, their appearances together are necessarily rare, so this is a must-see opportunity to catch them live. The majesty and control of June’s voice combine with the passion of John Jones’ singing and the dynamic drive of Oysterband to illuminate dark traditional ballads and contemporary classics alike - witness their moving duet version of Joy Division’s 'Love Will Tear Us Apart', widely regarded as the best-ever reinterpretation of that much-covered track. Songs from their seminal 1990 album 'Freedom & Rain' and their multi-award-winning 2011 follow-up 'Ragged Kingdom' will of course be featured, plus exciting new material.
