Noisy Villages Launches New Programme of Live Music Events in Ryedale

Village halls around Ryedale will be getting noisier with the launch of a new series of live music events later this month. Bloom Arts are bringing up and coming bands from across Yorkshire to village venues starting on Saturday 26th March at Terrington Village Hall.

“After all the challenges that both village halls and performers have faced since March 2020, I’m delighted to finally launch Noisy Villages” said Helen Mahoney, Bloom Arts Director. “The aim is to give a wide variety of musicians the opportunity to play in rural venues, and for local communities to enjoy something a bit different on their doorstep. We want to try and make it easier for people to get out to music and cultural events – the events are open to all ages and the flexibility of the venues means we have plenty of space to make sure everyone feels comfortable.”

This first gig in the series features two acts with a folk flavour. Simon Robinson’s Jambalaya play a wide repertoire of music, ranging from American mountain songs and ballads, British folk songs, blues and spirituals and even the occasional pop hit. After touring extensively and releasing 3 albums and an EP to critical acclaim with the band Maia, Simon has since gone on to explore the more traditional roots of acoustic music, performing his repertoire of folk songs round the country solo as well as with Redwood River Band, Moorlanders and Sugarwell Hill. Joined by Alice Phelps on double bass and Will Fletcher on percussion, expect ethereal pure vocals, hypnotic banjo and guitar and a strong audience connection.

Teah Lewis is a Sheffield-based singer-songwriter whose sound channels the soulful folk of Vashti Bunyan and Joni Mitchell. Her songs grab the head and the heart, pairing wistful lyrics with sweet intricate melodies, and mixing strong storytelling with a voice that’s at once powerful and delicate.

Tickets for Noisy Village #1 are available here priced at £7 / £4 for under 18’s. All ages are welcome but please note that under-16s need to be accompanied by an adult. Come along and discover your new favourite band!

Further events are planned over the coming months at other villages including Wintringham, Hutton-le-Hole and Gilling East. Follow Noisy Villages on Facebook or Bloom Arts Instagram to keep up to date.
