In September two top class concerts at Kirton In Lindsey Town hall

In September two top class concerts, the first is on
Friday 13th September

with support from CROOKED WEATHER 
Josh Burnell got a great reaction when supporting The Once earlier this year.  On that occasion he was accompanied by Frances Sladen on vocals and Holly Brandon on violin.  They were so good that we just had to have them back with their full band.  The other members are Nathan Greaves on guitar, Jack Woods on mandolin and acoustic guitar, Matthew Melford on bass and Ed Simpson on drums.
Whilst growing up, Josh was drawn to progressive rock music and more recently began listening to traditional music.  He has blended the two styles to create something quite unique.
He created great interest in the folk world and the general music scene in 2018 with his ambitious 'Seasons Project', which saw him release one song a week for a whole year.  Fourteen favourites were chosen for his 'Songs for a Season' album, which got several 5* reviews in the British Music press.

Over the past two years they have gone down a storm at many festivals, such as Folk East, Music Port, Beardy Festival, The Great British Folk Festival and Costa Del Folk.  Earlier this year embarked on their first full length UK tour, which culminated in a show at Cecil Sharp House in London.  The band have a great future ahead of them.  We guarantee that you will have not seen their likes before.
The same can be said of the support act Crooked Weather, who are Will Blade and Holly Blackshaw, with their unique blend of rock infused folk.  They are melodic and magnificent.

 Advance Tickets are £13.00 and can be obtained from the Costcutter store in Kirton (formerly One Stop), from Brian on 01652 649230 or or from

Venue:  Town Hall, Market Square, Kirton in Lindsey, N Lincs, DN21 4LZ

CHORLTON COUNTRY CLUB are  Thomas Dibb, Lauren Housley, Mark Lewis and CJ Hillman.  In 2016 they got together with other musicians in the Manchester area to play regular Wednesday evening session at the Chorlton Club to play an eclectic mix of American roots music.
The monthly sessions have developed into having guest musicians play and now they take the format  out across the country as The Chorlton Country Club Revue.  The shows will feature a host of special guests including Robbie Cavanagh, Demi Marriner and Joe Martin.

The seven date tour will celebrate their debut studio album 'Volume 1' released on their own 'Triple C' record label.  The album features some of the greatest American songs of the last fifty years, including Take It To The Limit (Eagles), To Love Somebody (The Bee Gees) and The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down (The Band).
This will an evening of top class musicianship, some great songs, including many of Lauren's, great singing from Lauren and Tom. and some great cameos from Robbie, Demi and Joe.  Don't miss it.

Red Earth Theatre Present Soonchild at Lincoln Drill Hall.

Red Earth Theatre and Folk Trio Threaded are bringing their latest show, Soonchild to
Lincoln Drill Hall on Sunday 13 October – it’s a bold, brilliant and imaginative show for the whole family.

Red Earth Theatre will be joined on tour by the folk trio, Threaded who have created brand new compositions for the show which they’ll play live as part of the show’s action. With Threaded’s energy, passion and outstanding musicianship, it’s the perfect way for children and families to enjoy folk music together! I wondered if you might be able to help us to spread the word about this show to your contacts through social media, email and word of mouth?

Here’s what the press have said about Threaded:

'The music quite simply dazzles'  FATEA 
'An absolute joy to listen to.' Folk Radio UK
'Creative, clever and captivating music of instant allure and appeal.'  The Living Tradition

Set somewhere north of the Arctic Circle, Soonchild is the story of John, his wife and their baby, the Soonchild – who refuses to be born until she can hear the World Songs.

Follow John on a thrilling quest as he meets a constellation of cool characters including the most magnificent of all Polar creatures – the Ice Bear. John must find the World Songs and save the world, before it’s too late.

Soonchild brings Russell Hoban’s enduring story magically to life using fantastical 3D and shadow puppets, superb storytelling, integrated sign language, creative captioning, live music, plus a whole lot of fun and surprises along the way.

Red Earth Theatre in association with
Arena Theatre Wolverhampton and Derby Theatre present
