Ryburn Folk Club – Gilchrist Collective

29th June, 8pm

Most truly yours, Aunt Anne’ celebrates the achievements of Anne Geddes Gilchrist OBE (1863-1954), who made an important collection of songs, tunes and folklore from her home in Lancashire and became a significant figure in the folk music world of the early 20th Century.

The Gilchrist Collective has been formed by four accomplished performers to tell her story for the first time, using narrative, slides and a rich and varied selection of the songs she preserved.

Find out more about Anne Gilchrist and the Gilchrist Collective in this article from Living Tradition Magazine

Ryburn Folk Club – Jess & Richard Arrowsmith

Jess and Richard Arrowsmith are singers and musicians (fiddle & melodeon) and well established in the traditional English music scene. 

They bring you powerful vocals, subtle accompaniments, lively tunes and a broad range of material that will have you laughing, weeping, tapping your feet and joining in the choruses. Jess’s self-penned songs have been performed and recorded by a range of other artists and are entering the tradition in their own right.
