North East Folk Collective presents two great folk bands performing free in the 5|Quarter Café Bar.
Hek want you to have a good time! We love playing folk tunes and they’ve got to be either infectious and bouncy, or lilting and lovely – otherwise we won’t play them! Janet on fiddle, Francis on guitar and Huw on whistles will be expecting you to bob your heads, stamp your feet and maybe even break into spontaneous dance.
Teresa and Bert have been performing for five years in the north-east of England and the Netherlands. The blend of voices and their arrangements breathe new life into folk standards and folk-influenced pop songs, alongside lesser-known numbers interspersed with Bert’s original material. Relax into the beautiful harmonies and sheer musicality of this engaging duo.
The performances will be followed by an informal acoustic jam session, so please bring your voices and acoustic instruments if you wish to participate. Or just enjoy a drink and listen.
This is a free entry concert. Please ignore the Get Tickets button.
