Flyers for some of the upcoming gigs......
We had a fantastic time at Hunstanton Folk Festival last Saturday - lineup was Adrian, Moto, Sharon, John and Roger - great audience who joined in and really added to the energy of the event! Anyone got any photos for us please?
AND a great gig at Shouldham Beer Festival - lineup of Adrian, Sharon, John and Roger. Lots of nice compliments from the early evening crowd.
Folk in the Town - turned into a fantastic event - really good music from all involved, everyone turning in great performances, fantastic crowds on both days - could not have gone better! We have already picked up a gig for next year as a result, plus very good Facebook feedback.
A big update on the gig list done, a very busy time for us as we head into summer. Already getting Christmas bookings coming in as well.
Adrian has put together the story of whaling in King's Lynn and through to the 20th century, told through the folk songs associated with the industry, together with narrative (and hopefully film) - watch out for this one......
For the the Trues Yard event we will be doing ‘Songs From The Sea and Lynn Ballads’ - we will be performing some of our sea and Lynn based songs themed around fishing plus the ballads from Gareth Calway's 'Doin' Different' that we have written the music for. Gareth Calway is also appearing that night, performing his Norfolk ballads.
Heritage weekend (10/11 September) also sees the Fried Pirates with Gareth in Hanse House (11.00, 13.00, on 11th) performing the ballads and also playing sets in the Arts Centre courtyard (12.00) and at Trues Yard (15.00) - a bit of a busy day with lots of running about!
Gareth Calway - 'Doin Different' tour dates can be found here
and I can also recommend his tour about the Littleport and Ely Riots of 1861 with Andy wall. details here
4 track EP will soon be available - 'A rum do!' Recorded live in the studio in Swaffham by Katy, Roger and Adrian. Might make it into an album when we can get everyone together. Bold Riley can be heard here. Others will be on Youtube shortly
