Marilyn Middleton and Sandy Stanage 

13th October                            £8

Marilyn was born in Chicago where she began singing professionally at the age of 15. Her first work was in folk music but she soon broadened her range to include Rock & Roll and then Jazz & Blues. Sandy has been playing guitar since the age of 12, when he formed his first band with schoolmate Jim (Midge) Ure. Sandy’s work over the years has earned numerous plaudits and huge respect from audiences and fellow musicians alike, often being cited as “the guitarists’ guitarist”. Marilyn and Sandy first worked together along with Ian Bruce as the folk/contemporary trio “Scotland Yard”, following which they worked closely for several years as a live duo and on Marilyn’s albums NOBODY KNOWS YOU and A DOLL’SHOUSE. 2015 sees them performing together for the first time in 25 years or more, through a desire to revive the music and the joy of those days “while we still can!”


Bob Wood    

20th October                                                                   £8

Bob hails from the west coast of Scotland but has long been based in London. An engaging solo singer and performer with an easy going sense of humour, he’s known also as an accomplished finger-style guitarist. Exploring a range of open tunings, his playing and song interpretations have been described as displaying rare sensitivity, lightness of touch and great technique. “Bob Wood is one of the deftest pickers and tastiest arrangers of songs it has been my pleasure to hear …a real delight!”  STEVE TILSTON

Carrivick Sisters    

27th October                                                        £10

 The Carrivick Sisters are one of the UK’s top young bluegrass and folk acts. Twins Laura and Charlotte perform their original songs and instrumentals along with a few carefully chosen covers on guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, and clawhammer banjo. Their busy touring schedule is rapidly building them a reputation for engaging and entertaining live performances with tight sibling vocal harmonies and multi-instrumental virtuosity. Having grown up in South Devon, an area rich in folk lore and legends, much of their original material is inspired by their local surroundings and history.
