Subject: RE: Folk & Roots event at Hessle Town Hall-8 Sept
Guest, I am one of the people helping to promote this event.

I suppose it depends on how you define "trad" on any given day of the week. Beggar's Bridge are certainly a (very fine) band in the traditional style albeit their songs are original (though you wouldn't necessarily know this unless you were told). Paula Ryan plays a number of traditional Irish songs on occasion also, so yes, in my opinion there will be some "traditional stuff".

Hopefully this will be the first of many of these events and if the venture goes well we may well be able to bring in bigger and better acts from "out of town" as well as those from the region. We would envisage this will cover the whole folk/roots spectrum from traditional to contemporary and many things in between.

Hope this answers your question.
