14th May ~ Chris Sherburn, Denny Bartley & Emily Sanders

Following a chance meeting at Whitby Folk Festival in 1993, Chris Sherburn (concertina) and Denny Bartley (vocals and guitar) have been bringing their unique sound to audiences across Europe and America, creating one of folk music’s most enduring partnerships. Their obvious rapport made them one of the busiest acts on the folk scene, both as a duo and with their well-loved trio/quartet Last Night’s Fun. Their soul-stirring songs, exhilarating tunes and quick-witted banter ensures that no two concerts are ever the same.

In 2016 Chris and Denny joined forces with Emily Sanders (fiddle/viola and vocals) and have since become a well-established trio, for the first time blending vocal harmonies and strings to underpin Chris and Denny’s unique sound, as well as providing a female lead vocal for some songs, and bringing a repertoire of English folk songs to complement the band’s more Celtic and traditional roots.

Emily was a founder member of the acclaimed trio Isambarde. She has also toured with Merrymouth (Simon Fowler of Ocean Colour Scene’s acoustic band) and regularly appears with Pete Morton and Chris Parkinson.

Doors open at 7.30pm, show starts at 8pm.

Tickets available here.
