We have two further NCEM events later this Spring. Gigspanner, on Wednesday 17th April, is the innovative trio fronted by Steeleye Span’s long-term fiddle player Peter Knight, while on Monday 20th May we welcome back The Melrose Quartet, which brings together Nancy Kerr, James Fagan and Jess & Richard Arrowsmith. Both these shows are also now open for booking through the NCEM website.
At the Black Swan, April and May’s club programme highlights include return visits by the wonderful Scottish duo of Mairearad Green & Anna Massie and the young blues and folk singer/guitarist Sunjay (formerly Sunjay Brayne). There is also a rescheduled night with Pilgrims’ Way, whose performance in March this year was scuppered by all that snowy weather, and eagerly awaited debuts by political singer songwriter Grace Petrie and highly rated Irish duo Ye Vagabonds. There will also be a Young Performers Night featuring the bands Nidd and Don’t Feed The Peacocks and a debut visit by the excellent duo of Rosie Hodgson & Rowan Piggott.
