St George’s Church Cullercoats
Autumn Folk Concert
Saturday 14th September 2019 7.30pm till 10.30pm
Alistair Anderson is internationally acknowledged as the master of the English Concertina and a fine exponent of the Northumbrian Pipes. He delights audiences with the lyrical slow airs and lively dance tunes of Northumberland and with his own music, which has grown out of his love of traditional music.
‘His appeal as a musician lies not only in his remarkable handling of the English Concertina and Northumbrian Pipes. It is also a result of his total involvement in his music, his absolute sincerity, which succeeds in reaching a far wider audience than his classification as a folk musician would suggest.’ The Stage
Pegleg Ferret are Keith Pollard, Geoff Anderson and Benny Graham. They specialise in unaccompanied three-part harmony singing and lean towards material, which is either traditional or written in the traditional idiom. They have a bias towards industrial songs from the North-East of England but also perform a number of humorous songs. They were all in their teens when they first met and got to know each other through performing as solo singers around the local folk club circuit. During their time together they have performed both nationally and throughout Europe and appeared on record, television and radio.
Another Penny perform a unique combination of traditional and original songs in carefully crafted arrangements that showcase a dialogue of guitars, piano and on occasion other stringed exotica.
Maurice plays Acoustic Guitars, Mandolin, Cittern, Tres Cubano and 5 string Banjo. Adam Plays Acoustic Guitar, Piano and Slide Guitar.
Their first album was released in 2014. The long awaited second album is due out in winter 2019 on the Phoenix Folk Label.
