Dear London Folk Music Meetup members

There have been no additional expressions of interest in this event so far. There are still upstairs seated tickets available if anyone is interested. Sorry I probably didn't think this one through very well but hopefully it's a lesson learnt for the future! If I get no other interest in the next week I'll probably cancel this event.

Have another look below. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

The Unthanks - hurry selling fast!

"Music as tough as it is gentle, as ancient as it is modern, and as coldly desolate as it is achingly intimate. They might not end up being the best-selling British all-girl group of all time, but they're well on their way to being the most charismatic and imaginative" Paul Morley, Observer Music Magazine Top 50 Albums of the Year (number 17)
"Every now and again, and I mean, every now and again, once in a blue moon type of every now and again, you hear music that is so complete, so wonderful, unique and yet familiar that it stops you in your tracks. They have that blue moon magic about them, and they have it in spades." BBC Website Live Review

Forging links between folk worlds old, new and other, Rachel and her set have blown a bracing north-easterly gale through traditional English song, casting it in an endlessly inventive and playful new mould.

You can listen for yourselves below.

I'm excited to see that Lucy Farrell is supporting. I heard her in a support slot a while back and found her quite compelling. (support)

Buy tickets from agents below. They are selling fast so you'll need to hurry and there are only upstairs seated tickets so we may not be able to sit together, but I'm sure it'll be a good night not to be missed. ?15 + variable booking fee.


Doors open 7.00 pm. Show time unconfirmed. I'll be in the O'Neill's next door from about 6.45 pm.

I think you'll all really enjoy this. Do come along! Be good to see you.

Best wishes
