Folk on the Water on the Minesweeper in Deptford Creek was pretty special. Fantastic singing from the floor & amazing feature spots from Ian Kennedy & Sarah Lloyd, & for Molly Carroll (joined by her friends Jess & Ed).
Here Jess is dancing while Ed plays gourd banjo & Molly plays ukulele.
Thomas was amazing: folk tales & folk singing of the highest order. He is worth seeing if you haven’t yet, do!
Here is Thomas performing Johnny Barton.
Coming up on Friday is another Cunning Folk at Sutton House which promises to be an excellent affair. We have the wonderful Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp performing a set of traditional songs.
Here is a chat that Nigel from GentleFolk, the other musical cat on the bill, had with them earlier on this month.
& here is what they sound like.
GentleFolk will be playing a set too.
GentleFolk have been described by the comedian Stewart Lee as “Good” & by the folk band Stick In The Wheel as “a psychedelic folk Steely Dan”.
There will also be stories of food & cunning from the storyteller, Sarah Rundle.
