May 16, 2015 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Banner Capture

BBC Folk Award winning singer/songwriter Emily Portman and one of the UK’s most sought-after folk multi-instrumentalists Sam Sweeney join together to create a specially devised show.

Emily Portman’s debut album The Glamoury received two BBC Folk Award nominations and overwhelming critical acclaim. Taking on folk as a contemporary art form, she weaves rich narratives into a brooding realm of twisted folktales: The Daily Telegraph has described her as The rising star of traditional English folksong. To call Sam Sweeney just a ‘fiddle player’ is to do him an injustice. He’s been playing violin since he was 6 and is now a highly respected multiinstrumentalist; a member of Bellowhead and the exciting new band Leveret.

Two remarkable artists create a true Festival occasion — expect an intimate evening of folk music at its finest, weaving together songs and tunes with sensitivity and deft musicianship.
