Thursday Aug 22, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Town Hall, Wadebridge, The Platt
Wadebridge, Cornwall PL27 7AQ
£12.5 – £25

As a long-serving troubadour of the folk and acoustic music scene, master songwriter and storyteller Steve Knightley has spent much of his life on the road, collecting songs, stories, anecdotes and observations – with the odd disaster along the way. Steve once again takes to England’s highways and byways to present ‘Roadworks’ – a show which builds on the success of his sell-out 2018 solo tour ‘Songs and Stories’. This is a stripped-back, one-man show that’s infused with wit, warmth and alchemy, beautifully illustrated by his trenchant songs of history, love and conscience.

Wadebridge, Cornwall PL27 7AQ
£12.5 – £25

The Unthanks Are Now Sold Out! Use Contact Us to Get On Reserve List Staunch traditionalism and sonic adventure may seem like polar opposites, yet they are easy bedfellows in the gentle hands of The Unthanks. They see folk music less as a style and more as a oral history that offers perspective on our own time. Their approach to storytelling straddles the complex relationship between modernism and learning from the past. You might find them singing in a Tyneside…

Town Hall, Wadebridge, The Platt
Wadebridge, Cornwall PL27 7AQ

The Taouk Trio is this year's group of talented young musicians from Brittany. The most striking when you listen to this trio is the power, the sheer strength of their music. Three young musicians who play conventional instruments for traditional Breton Fest-Noz music (clarinet, flute and diatonic accordion) and yet, the sound is unexpected and unheard of. It is undeniably Breton dance music, you can feel the energy of “lone pipers” but it is not just that. When the dancing…
