Friday 10 March – The Friends Friday Night Folk Club, 7pm,Village Hall

The Friends Friday Night Folk Club is back with a vengeance after November’s sell-out gig with John Smith & Katherine Priddy, which can only mean our reputation for bringing first-class folk music to our little corner of Beds, Herts and Bucks must be on the rise!

Fresh from performing on BBC Radio 3 on Christmas Day, we are very lucky to have The Wilderness Yet visit Little Gaddesden’s village hall on Friday March 10th!

Having released their self-titled debut album last Summer to critical acclaim, The Wilderness Yet is on a roll. They have already published a songbook of their “newly written songs which sound as if they’ve been around for decades” (BBC Radio 2).

The Wilderness Yet comprises of folksinger Rosie Hodgson (BBC Young Folk Award Finalist), traditional fiddler Rowan Piggott (Future of Young Folk Award Winner), and guitarist-flautist Philippe Barnes (MA in Irish Music Performance).  Independently, they have earned audiences’ esteem as consummate musicians; together, they weave an eclectic tapestry of traditional and original songs and tunes; from a cappella three-part harmonies to luscious instrumental arrangements.

“This is something timely… The Wilderness Yet have released a lovely album…” – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

“Absolutely beautiful… the three of them together make an absolutely wonderful sound…” – Mike Harding

“Exquisite” – Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music

Please get your tickets early as we are bound to sell out again, and get ready to spring into Spring with a bit of Irish dancing and of course, enjoying the craic along the way!

£14 + Booking Fee

Doors open at 7pm

Fully stocked Tring Brewery Bar
