The Village Green People
La Rosa Hotel
FOLK WEEK 2013
An Alternative Future
THE VILLAGE GREEN PEOPLE take over La Rosa Hotel's basement club for their alternative vision of Whitby Folk Week.
Taking place over five nights of folk week from Sunday the 18th of August to Thursday the 22nd, The Village Green People will present contemporary, inclusive, exciting, vibrant folk and acoustic music in intimate, informal and inviting surroundings.
The Village Green People are aiming their events at residents of the Whitby area as well as visitors to folk week and also wish to offer a platform for young performers -particularly those from the local area who may struggle to find their place in the more established events. This is also a chance for established performers to try out more experimental approaches to the traditions in front of a welcoming and curious audience.
Yorkshire Band Maia, fresh from their Glastonbury appearance will be in residence for The Village Green People all week and Radio 2 Folk Award Winner Bella Hardy has confirmed that she will be appearing on Tuesday the 20th.
La Rosa Hotel and The Village Green People would love to hear from established artists and upcoming young performers who would be interested in performing. If this is you, you can contact The Village Green People through La Rosa or find them on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/thevillagegreenpeople or twitter @VGPeople
The concerts which will be strictly acoustic will commence at 8pm each night with doors at 7.30. Tickets for each night are £10 and can be booked by contacting reception at La Rosa Hotel on 01947 606981 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
