Fell To Fire with Emily Hennessey and Kirstin Taylor £12

 

Cumbria-based storyteller Emily Hennessey and singer-songwriter Kirsten Taylor unleash a world of stories collected on travels across an epic landscape.

Moving, wild, witty and alluring, this show from two of the North’s most exciting artists, will fire your imagination and unveil a captivating Cumbria before you.

“Emily Hennessey is such a mesmerising storyteller. I couldn’t take my eyes off her!” – Everything Theatre

“Kirsten Taylor has a voice that could melt a diamond. Her minimalist, jazz-informed songs are far off the beaten track.“ – The Devil Has The Best Tuna

Blazin’ Fiddles £16

Blazin’ Fiddles

 

Blazin’ Fiddles are undoubtedly one of the world’s most prolific fiddle groups. Approaching their 20th year in 2018, no other band has quite managed to capture the excitement, passion and sensitivity of Scottish music all at once.

With a Blazers performance comes the rare opportunity to hear the regional expressions, from Scotland’s Highlands and islands, and the individual style from each fiddler – Inverness’ Bruce MacGregor, Shetlander Jenna Reid, Nairn’s Rua Macmillan, and Orcadian Kristan Harvey – in a blend of ensemble and solo sets. Fiddles and bows come alight atop guitar and piano from Anna Massie and Angus Lyon, delivering a musically intoxicating evening for all.

Whatever the hall – be it in a Highland village or London’s Royal Albert – this legendary, multi award-winning act never fails to set the hearts of their audiences alight.

“bursting with joie de vivre and personality” – Songlines

“an ensemble of class and distinction” – Fatea

“infectious, enlivening and irresistible euphoria” – Folk Radio UK

“Music like this is a reminder why Hogmanay celebrations are such fun.” – London Evening Standard (four stars)

“the Led Zeppelin of the folk world” – The Scotsman

“Absolutely mind-blowing” – Mike Harding

Tickets are available from the Coronation Hall  TeL: 01229 587140 or Online
