Happy Summer 2019 Everybody!
We are having a different kind of summer, in many senses. We have cut down festival appearances to just a handful. One of these is Warwick Folk Festival where we will once again be competing in the Eurovision Song Contest which this year has a theme of “Elvis” songs – look out for that one if you are at the festival.
And we have created some space for ourselves, as Katherine has accidentally written a Folk-Opera! Inspired by the soon to be released book, The Undoing of Polly Button by local writer, Stephen Moore, there are now fourteen songs and a narrative! Daisybell will be helping Steve to promote the book and also joining in with the celebrations in Nuneaton to mark 200 years since the birth of George Eliot. So we have a couple of outdoor gigs planned (come on, sunshine), beginning on the morning of Sunday 14 June 10.30, as part of a murder walk at Nuneaton’s Food Festival – so no chance of any confusion there then! Look out here and on social media for other Polly Button related appearances.
Meanwhile, here’s a nice picture of us having fun supporting Rosie Calvert and Will Finn at Bedworth Folk Club.
