Dipper Malkin is the “potent combination” (Folk Radio UK) of two musicians that
have spent their careers to date involved in groundbreaking projects. Now they
are rapidly earning a reputation for elevating traditional music to new heights of
sturdy beauty and sophistication as a duo. John Dipper’s new approach to the
unusual, 14-string, viola d’amore, and Dave Malkin’s finely honed accompaniments
and unique voice have afforded them with glowing praise for their debut album.
Don’t miss one of the must-see folk acts of 2017.

25th March 2018 - Brian Peters, £6.50
Brian Peters is one of the English folk scene’s great all-rounders: a compelling singer, a
first-rate squeezebox player and a skilled guitarist. Brian is one of the country’s best
anglo-concertina players and is just as good on melodeon, while he’s also internationally
renowned as a powerful singer of the great old ballads. Although best known for traditional
folk songs and lively English dance music, Brian’s act is full of variety and also includes
newer songs and tunes, plus wild squeezebox excursions into ragtime or blues. Add his
energy and dry humour onstage, and you have a truly entertaining performer.
