Jackie was one of our first concert headliners in 2008, and it is a great pleasure to welcome her back this evening.
Solasta are an outstanding new folk ensemble who are fast building a name for themselves on the back of their inventive arrangements, unique sound and exhilarating live performances.
Comprising award-winning fiddler Elisabeth Flett, cellist Hannah Thomas and guitarist Jamie Leeming, their dynamic interpretations of Celtic based material are rooted firmly in tradition, whilst incorporating elements from diverse musical worlds including classical, jazz and early music.
Mitchell and Vincent are an acoustic duo from Dorset and Somerset
Much of their repertoire is instrumental, played mainly on the fiddle and guitar, and is based on the folk music of the British Isles but this is also mixed in with a few broadly traditional songs.
They have played a whole variety of concerts, events and festivals which have included: Lyme Folk Weekend; The Sidmouth Fringe Festival; Cornwall Folk Festival; Wessex Folk Festival; Home Farm Fest, The Bottle Inn (Marshwood), Devon Music Festival, the Bath International Music Festival, Broadstairs Folk Week, and many more.
