Thursday October 10th   Jack Rutter

A hugely engaging stage presence, his soaring vocal, powerhouse guitar and bouzouki playing and masterful arrangements of traditional songs and contemporary covers have enthralled audiences from the largest festival main stages to the most intimate folk clubs.
This year sees the release of his critically acclaimed third album This Is Something Constant, a compelling and spellbinding showcase of gripping story ballads and upbeat festival-stage firecrackers, perfectly pitched and delivered with soaring, crystal clear vocals that breathe new life into ancient tales.

‘Jack Rutter is one of the most enthralling folk singers, guitarists & musicians on the British folk scene today – with This Is Something Constant, the final release in a trilogy, he has hit the highest watermark to date.’ – Folk Radio UK

‘Singular and compelling; one of the finest singers in folk today.’  – Songlines

★★★★ – MOJO ‘We come to the album on the back of a stirring solo set at Manchester Folk Festival, when Jack fired out a volley of songs that took no prisoners and demanded the attention of a late-night club crowd. The fact that he’s armed with a powerhouse of an acoustic Gibson that’s his main weapon of choice which he brandishes with glee, makes him a potent performer.’ 

Thursday November 7th   Ryan Young Duo

Ryan holds both a first class honours and a Masters degree from the Royal
Conservatoire of Scotland. He was twice a finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk
Awards and twice a finalist in the prestigious BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional
Musician of The Year. He was awarded ‘Up And Coming Artist Of The Year’ at the
Scots Trad Awards in 2017, nominated for the Horizon Award at the BBC Radio 2
Folk Awards 2018 and awarded Folking.com's Musician Of The Year title, also in
2018.
Further MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards nominations include Album Of the Year,
and Folk Band Of The Year. Ryan Young was also the only UK artist selected to
perform at the prestigious World Music conference, WOMEX, in 2019.
…the man makes the fiddle articulate the widest range of emotions and
illustrations – and listening to him play you realise he is surely in possession of a
magnificent gift’ – FolkWords 
‘….leading the ‘New Wave’ of traditional Scottish fiddlers, virtuoso Ryan
Young’ – BBC World on 3 
‘Nuance, wit, risk-taking, contrast and above all a real sense of joy in making
music were all there in abundance and Young’s solo feature, where he
appeared to have been truly possessed by the melodies, was as exciting as it
was uplifting’ – Rob Adams, The Herald
‘Uniquely graceful and expressive playing.  A future star of the Scottish fiddle
world’ – Aidan O’Rourke (Lau)

January 5 Julie Murphy and Fiddlebox: And a review from Linda Norris, Pembrokeshire artist.
I went to a fantastic gig at Cuffern Manor this week, Julie Murphy and Ceri Owen Jones performed new pieces from their upcoming album, ably supported by Fiddlebox. Julie’s songs are tender and poignant and their collaboration embodies the best of traditional and contemporary work, poetry and music, and, amazingly, Ceri played a piece from the medieval ap Huw manuscript – one of the manuscript sources I have been consulting for my windows project…synchronicity at its best!…dreaming of a harp in the chapel..!
