We are pleased to present an evening of original acoustic singer-song writing featuring two top acts.
Contemporary folk/acoustic duo Gilmore & Roberts combine award-winning songwriting with astounding musicianship and their trademark harmonies to create a powerful wall of sound. Nominated three times at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Katriona Gilmore (fiddle, mandolin) and Jamie Roberts (guitar) met while studying at Leeds College of Music and released their debut album in 2008.

Since then, the duo has toured Canada and mainland Europe, played some of the UK's biggest acoustic festivals, toured with folk rock legends Fairport Convention and won countless accolades for their genre-spanning work.
2015 saw the release of their fourth album, Conflict Tourism, which appeared on several end-of-year Best Album lists and received national airplay on both BBC Radio 2 & BBC 6music.
In support will be Alden, Patterson and Dashwood a highly regarded trio from Norfolk. They have featured on the Folk Show on Radio 2 (It's lovely stuff Mark Radcliffe) and at venues and festivals all over the country. They weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, dobro, guitar and mandolin around beautifully written original songs and melodies.
