Song spot from Rising Voices

Also back for a return visit is Haddo, another duo and they last played at Oxfolk in January 2012. The BBC Folk Awards nominated musician Will Pound, is best known his harmonica playing, but with Haddo he plays melodeon, alongside Nicky Grant, viola and fiddle player with a folk and baroque background. The duo produces a rich and exciting sound, with driving tunes and unexpected harmonic twists.

As well for her exquisite musicianship, Jo Freya is known for her calling with Blowzabella and Token Women. Tonight Jo introduces Daisy Black, founder of Sheffield’s Playford in the Pub. Daisy is the last of this season’s callers from Cat’s Calling Academy.

To round off this season, Risinghurst’s own community choir, Rising Voices, will entertain us with rousing choruses and touching harmonies.
