Folk Club 27 Feb 2019 – Mike & Helen Hockenhull
February 27 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Songs, concertina, guitar, fiddle, banjo, harmonies.
Mike and Helen have a long and varied experience on the folk scene. Helen was part of the the well regarded Derbyshire group Muckram Wakes with Roger Watson and John Tams, and then with Roger and John & Suzie Adams after JT’s departure to London and ultimately The National Theatre.
She was also a vital part of the ground breaking New Victory Band along with other members of Ryburn 3 Step. That was when Mike moved to Yorkshire and entered the picture as the band’s sound engineer.
It wasn’t long before his talents, particularly as a banjo player, were harnessed into the Yorkshire-based Hooke’s Law dance band. Helen meantime worked with Maggie Boyle and Lynda Hardcastle in the trio Gracenotes.
Now resident at Keighley’s Bacca Pipes folk club, we’re pleased to welcome the two of them to Ryburn Folk Club for what we’re sure will be a great night.
