Upwood Village Hall’s autumn programme is now in full swing and for its next concert the venue will be welcoming Nancy Kerr, BBC Radio 2 Folk singer of the Year, as part of Melrose Quartet.

The Melrose Quartet comprises multiple BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners Nancy Kerr and James Fagan who have joined forces with legendary Sheffield duo Richard and Jess Arrowsmith (Crucible, Hekety, Pecsaetan). The band are capturing imaginations with their bold take on old and new English songs and tunes. Glorious four-part harmony singing combines with crunchy twin fiddles, full-bodied melodeon and powerful bouzouki in a set that will leave audiences singing and tapping their feet.

Pic cap: Richard Arrowsmith, Nancy Kerr, Jess Arrowsmith, James Fagan.

The performance takes place on Thursday, October 15 and tickets, costing £12.50, are available on: 01487 814114 or pndmcleod@btinternet.com.
