Bridget St. John visits the UK in September 2018 for a short tour. The tour begins with an appearance at Moseley Folk Festival, Birmingham, on September 2nd. Bridget then visits some of the UK's intimate acoustic venues, including the John Peel Centre, Stowmarket, before concluding the tour with two shows in Ireland.\nThe late John Peel helped to launch Bridget's musical career and her first three albums were released on his Dandelion label in the late 1960s. Bridget and John's widow, Sheila Ravenscroft, have been friends since 1969.\nAccompanying Bridget for the first half of the tour, including here at the John Peel Centre, will be cellist Sarah Smout. They met for the first time when they were recording with Michael Chapman and BJ Cole in Wales earlier this year.\nThe two women immediately became friends and discovered a mutual appreciation for each other's music and decided they would have to play together.\nSupport from Tilly Moses\nTilly Moses is a mandolin player and singer songwriter from Suffolk, now based in York. She has been performing all over the country since the age of just 13, supporting some of the best-loved folk acts in the UK, and recently released her long awaited debut album Alight & Adrift, to incredible critical acclaim.\nTilly's carefully crafted songs address subjects as diverse as climate change, gender inequality, apathy, love, and leaving home, and she delivers them with an extraordinarily powerful, passionate vocal style, and a colourful stage presence.\nLicensed bar.
