I had a great phone interview with Olivia at local newspaper the Holme Valley Review the other week, and was delighted to see a fabulous half page write-up about True North Music concerts in the new edition. It was great to see a big photo of old time duo Anna & Elizabeth when I opened the paper yesterday, and I’m very much looking forward to hosting the gals at Hepworth (near Holmfirth) this Saturday 6th August, for a concert and singing workshop. Hepworth Village Hall is a delightful intimate venue in a small scenic village 5 minutes from the centre of Holmfirth and about 45 minutes north-west of Sheffield.
The village hall also hosts regular monthly folk music concerts by my friends over at Hepworth Live. They’re on their summer break at the moment, but have lots more great concerts coming up from September, so check it out – their new website and 2016/17 programme will be out soon. True North Music also runs the occasional concert there (we hosted a beautiful performance by Rayna Gellert last summer). It’s going to be the perfect setting for Anna & Elizabeth’s delightful and magical brand of old time mountain music.
This acclaimed young American duo put their own spin on traditional ballads from both sides of the Atlantic, as well as playing Appalachian tunes and songs on fiddle, clawhammer banjo and guitar. So far on this trip, they have wowed audiences at Cambridge Folk Festival and Sidmouth Folk Week among other places, and we are lucky to be able to host them for their only full concert in Yorkshire on the tour. Anna & Elizabeth will also lead a harmony singing workshop (5pm-6:30pm) prior to the concert. Places are strictly limited for the workshop, and we only have a few left, so don’t miss out if you plan to join us for that. Advance tickets available from Wegottickets (note 10% booking fee):
Advance booking: Concert only ticket £12, workshop only ticket £15, concert & workshop combined ticket £25
Concert only: £14 on the door.
