Our Basement Sessions, in partnership with Acoustic Routes, feature singer/songwriters Bernard Hoskin, Dave Streatfield, John Meed and Rhys Wilson. For the first half they will perform in the round' taking it in turns to play songs, tell stories and sometimes accompany each other. The second half will open with a special guest and then close with all four musicians playing as a band. You can expect to hear songs by people such as Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, The Band, The Beatles, Elton John, Gordon Lightfoot, Jim Croce and more.
Our next Basement session is planned for January 17th, with special guests The Dryad.
The Dryad are a unique blend of woodwind instruments and vocals; performs a crossover of cultural music. Robb Appleton harmonica virtuoso and Paula Welham; whistle, flute and saxophones are former members of the established Cambridge based acoustic band Telephone Bill and The Smooth Operators. Robb and Paula are regularly joined by Sue Szymanski on percussion; a vibrant bodhran player and Myke Clifford, renowned jazz saxophonist and flutist. The Dryad (by definition a tree or wood spirit) creates a very unique, dynamic sound with its refreshing blend of woodwind driven celtic/blues.
