BOF

In 2000, Bof! started playing as a four-piece band specializing in traditional French and Breton music for dancing or listening to. During that time we have played in folk clubs, for dance groups and at festivals in England and France, as well as organising regular French and Breton dance workshops and public dances in East Anglia, as part of the Burybal and Prêt à Danser groups. Breton singer Gwendal Moële became a full-time member of our line-up in 2018.
The band’s repertoire is mainly traditional music from Central France and Brittany, but also includes compositions by members of the band and others.

Amelia Coburn
Amelia Coburn

Since being nominated for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards, Middlesbrough’s Amelia Coburn has been busy travelling the world as part of her language studies and gathering experiences that she threads through her highly lyrical and evocative original songs. With influences ranging through, but not exclusive to, folk, jazz, new wave, classic rock and pop and much more besides she explores an ethereal world hovering on the edges of reality.
Armed with her trusty ukulele, Amelia’s distinctive and beguiling voice is a captivating tool in her musical storytelling and recent singles Dublin Serenade and her latest, Perfect Storm, have gained national radio airplay in the UK and beyond.
A fantastic and distinctive live performer, Amelia has performed at Cambridge Folk festival, Czech Ukulele Festival, GNUF and in support and on stage with Steve Harley, Vin Garbutt and the Wedding Present as well as her own sell-out solo shows.

Cohen
Cohen

Cohen burst onto the folk scene in his teens with the energetic trio Granny’s Attic, along with schoolmates George Sansome and Lewis Wood, and in recent years has embarked on a solo career alongside this.
Cohen’s solo repertoire is rooted in the English folk tradition, celebrating the age-old musical heritage of this broad and diverse land, with a particular interest in the music of the West Midlands, where he spent many of his formative years. Traditional ballads, songs and tunes form the basis of the material, but with a smattering of baroque, renaissance, ragtime, and music hall thrown in for good measure.
Admission £8 (Members £5)

Mike Nicholson
Mike Nich

Mike Nicholson is one of those remarkable singers who manages to create an immediate and loyal following everywhere he goes. This is due in large part to his unrestrained passion for what he loves doing the most - singing good songs! He draws his audience to him through an unassuming approach which only asks that the listener might share his love of singing and of the songs.
Mike performs a wide spectrum of material, and generally speaking, it's material that has something to say. From his early acting days, he's retained an enthusiasm for utilising any format which can tell a story or which might stimulate the intellect. Through his singing, many audiences would agree, he's found the vehicle that suits him best.
Admission £8 (Members £5)

CHRISTMAS!!!      
       
2023      
Sunday 26th March 2023   Ben & Dom
Ben and Dom

Ben & Dom are a singing duo from South London. Ben takes the high notes and Dom takes the low notes (most of the time). The intricate blend of their harmonies comes from a close friendship and shared love of singing together. Ben & Dom weave their voices around songs old and new, performing original material alongside new interpretations of folk songs. Their lyrics touch on friendship, nature and what it means for two men to sing together in this modern day.
Ben & Dom released their debut EP 'Shoulder' in April 2022, with a sold-out launch event at the Normansfield Theatre. 'Shoulder' has been well received by audiences and industry, with widespread coverage on blogs, reviews and radio "Just amazing" (Tom Robinson - BBC6 Music). Ben & Dom are part of the EnglishFolkExpo artist scheme for 21/22 which will see them performing at Cambridge Folk Festival & the EFEx showcase. The duo are also working towards their first full length album for release in early 2023.
