Over the past 12 months I’ve been working with friends from Whitby Folk Week to bring you monthly recordings of tunes from England, France, Ireland and Asturian. I have been so luck to get to play with some fine musicians from across Europe. I’ve learned new tunes and recording skills (still a work in progress) and hopefully raised the profile of the festival.
The initiative has taken flight and proved hugely popular. So along with the Tuesday dancers from #Toesday and singers from #Troubaday, Whitby Folk Week is presenting the #Tunesday/Toesday/Troubaday Concert on Monday 22nd August 2016 at 5 pm at the wonderful Coliseum.
It will be a real feast of sparkly folk.
