Monthly Folk night in Dulwich 

At the Castle Pub, Crystal Palace Road

 

On 2 June at 7.30
DEBBIE ARMOUR  

DEBBIE ARMOUR 

Raised in Glasgow and the Isle of Mull Debbie is a hauntingly evocative singer of (mostly) traditional songs  and tonight she will be solo, helped by her shruti box. She will choose songs  from her broader repertoire, featuring many pieces that she rarely gets the chance to sing, when performing in Burd Ellen.

 

Expect songs in English Scots Gaelic (and possibly Welsh!).  To make this a properly Scottish night resident’s duties are being taken on by the local Dulwich Scottish music group, led by Andy Clarke who will MC, so there will be a lot of Scottish tunes (as well as the odd bit of piping!)

Debbie is best known for her role as half of Burd Ellen , and as a member of Green Ribbons, the formidably brilliant harmony group. She has recently developed live shows with songs concentrating on women’s struggles over paid and unpaid labour in Glasgow “She Works Hard for the Money” and a joint show with artist Ruth Ewan “ A jukebox of people Trying to change the world.”  

 

Entrance tonight is £12      

 

JULY 7

BITTER BLOSSOMS

Bitter Blossoms is an exciting new vocal trio based out of The Netherlands. Phoebe Kirrage (UK), Julie Hasfjord (NO) and Viktoria Nikolova (BG) combine their skills and knowledge of traditional and classical music to create a unique performance of songs, stories, and tunes.

As an international ensemble, Bitter Blossoms draws on folklore and tradition from their own home countries, Norway, Bulgaria, and England, creating a show akin to the ensemble name itself – simple and beautiful, but with an undertone of a darker nature three female voices, one from England, one from Bulgaria and one from Norway. Add folk song , add harmonies. A unique sound!
