The guest at the Folk Club at the Malt House, Rishworth HX6 4QB, on Wednesday February 22nd is Niamh Boadle.
Niamh is a talented singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and has absorbed strong influences from both the English and Irish traditions. She also finds time to dance with the respected Star and Shadow rapper side. Her two CDs have received critical acclaim in a wide range of publications so this is an early chance to see her before she appears at Warwick, Sidmouth, Towersey and Bromyard folk festivals in the summer. Catch her in performances posted on her web site.
Tickets are £9:00 (£8:00 for concessions) and the evening begins with tunes from the “Pit Band” at 8:00 p.m. sharp.
