Another class act on the way
Published on: 02 Jun 2014
DOWNEND Folk Club is gearing up for its third gig following the sell-out performance by top folk musician Bella Hardy.
This month will see another award-winning name take to the stage when Ange Hardy performs at Frenchay Village Hall.
Ange, a Somerset-based songwriter and singer, is creating waves in the world of modern folk singers, winning Fatea magazine’s female vocalist of the year 2013 award.
Her last album, Bare Foot Folk, has been described by BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe as excellent.
Steve Johnson, Downend Folk Club committee member, said: “We're thrilled to be welcoming another high-quality artist such as Ange Hardy. She's really interesting to watch in action because of the way that she uses modern technology, but the real joy of what she does lies in her storytelling, which is at the heart of all good folk music. It's truly captivating. We hope that people will come along and hear what she can do. They won't be disappointed!”
Ange Hardy will perform on Friday June 20 at Frenchay Village Hall. Doors open 7.30pm for an 8pm start.
Tickets £8 in advance or £10 on the door, available from the Downend Folk Club’s website or from Baguette Me Not, Downend. Bar available which includes real ale from the Great Western Brewing Co. Raffle during the interval, merchandise on sale.
