The world of folk music is known for being an incredibly welcoming and friendly place, and we'd certainly attest to that! Jay and I have spent the last 7 years meeting the most wonderful people and making some fantastic friendships. And we're delighted to say that we've invited some of these 'folky friends' on the holiday!
As well as all being rather lovely people, they also just happen to be some of the most talented artists on the UK folk roots scene! Each day, we'll be hosting a unique concert to delight your ears, while you put your feet up and unwind with a glass of your favourite tipple from the bar.
Concerts will be hosted in Kingston Country Courtyard's private bar area
The bar will be staffed throughout the concerts
Some musicians will also be joining us for each day's walk, schedule allowing
All concerts are private and for holiday guests only
Have a wee listen to who's coming in 2021!
Tuesday 18th May/8th June 2021
Opening proceedings will be the wonderful Alden Patterson & Dashwood. With rich harmonies, fiddle, guitar and dobro, they'll mesmerise you with uplifting instrumentals and self-penned songs depicting tales of young travelers, sleepy seas and their affection for home. And the second half? Well, that'll be us - Ninebarrow! And expect a spot of collaboration to finish things off. 5 part harmony? Don't mind if we do!
Wednesday 19th May/9th June 2021
Headlining our second concert, we've got two of the UK's most in-demand and talented folk musicians: Philip Henry and Hannah Martin (or 'Edgelarks' as they're known on stage). Deeply rooted in stories collected during their journeys across the world, Hannah's distinctive voice and awesome fiddle and banjo playing combines with Phil's world-class slide guitar and harmonica to create something very special indeed. Supporting them, we have the absolutely incredible Ben Cipolla. His music spans jazz, folk swing, pop and it's truly captivating. It's impossible to watch him perform without a grin plastered on your face!
Thursday 20th May/10th June 2021
Our final night will kick off with one of our best folky mates: the stupendously talented Louise Jordan before we round our concerts off with a rare, semi-acoustic appearance by The Ninebarrow Band.
Double bass, cello and percussion will join the normal line-up, and we’ll be delivering you something rather special to round off the musical part of the holiday.
