Wednesday 7th June - Xim
Musicians’ Practice from 7:00 pm. Xim from 8:15. Tickets £8 – cash only, please
Back after many years absence, Xim will be playing some old favourites, some traditional tunes and maybe some new ones. They play a contrasting style of tunes with their rhythmic Bourrées and groovy Scottisches on gurdy, flute and melodeon.
- Nick Carpenter – Melodeons
- Kate Ross – Flute, Whistle and Bass
- Frank Vickers – Hurdy Gurdy and Bodhran
Tickets £8 – cash only, please
Special Event: Thursday 29th June - Topette!!
This is not a Pied à Terre organised event.
Driven by the rhythmic boiler-room of Stradling’s gnarly bass, Buisse’s intuitive bodhrán playing and Cutting’s warm bottom end, the melodies burst out of the seams of this bedrock. With great big anthemic walls of sound, Cartonnet’s glowing French piping and visceral tenor banjo, Delarre’s bright, bushy-tailed fiddle lines and Cutting’s dynamic accordion style. They are, quite literally, having a bal! Tickets here!
- Andy Cutting – diatonic button accordion & melodeon
- James Delarre – violin & viola
- Julien Cartonnet – French bagpipes, & tenor banjo
- Tania Buisse – bodhrán
- Barnaby Stradling – acoustic bass guitar
