Autumn Dance with the Barley Cote Band and caller Baz Parkes

Following on from the success of our Midsummer Dance, we are back with an Autumn version with a slightly earlier start and finish time to make it more family-friendly.

Your caller is Baz Parkes with music from the Barley Cote Band (Chris Partington on fiddle, Anahata on melodeon and Mary Humphreys on keyboard.)  A good time is guaranteed!

7pm to 10 pm, bring your own refreshments.

Admission £10 (£5 for those in full-time education and under 12s free)

A great band, probably the best caller north of Wolverhampton and Waring Green’s famous sprung floor.  What’s not to like??

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
