Songs from the Pennines and beyond.
The Nobles (William, Cuthbert, and Lydia) are a family of dry stone wallers and traditional folk singers from West Yorkshire, and we are delighted to welcome them to the Ryburn Folk Club for the end of our 2017 – 18 season. We anticipate a boisterous evening packed with great chorus singing, plus the bonus of our wonderful residents.
The Nobles have recorded a CD of folk songs from their part of Yorkshire, the Holme Valley. William started singing in the 1950’s and learnt more songs by listening to local musicians and singers.
The R3S Folk Club usually meets every last Wednesday of the month in the upstairs room of the Malthouse in Rishworth – 270 Oldham Rd HX6 4QB. We start at 7.45pm with tunes from the Pit Band of local musicians, and then songs from the Residents and floor singers from 8pm before introducing the main guest artists presenting an informal, purely acoustic concert of folk music. We finish by 11pm.
Admission is £9 (£8 concessions). Click HERE for full information.
