Pete Metcalfe and Paul Stepto  

Mon 17 Aug 2015: Pete Metcalfe and Paul Stepto

Pete and Paul have been on the scene for quite a while, but have only been playing as a duo since 2012. They play guitar, mandolin and ukulele, and specialize in a mixture of their own material and a cherry-picked blend of folk, blues, jazz (and even the odd pop classic). So you never know quite what to expect and you get a mixture of the, er, unexpected.

Dick Miles  

Mon 7 Sep 2015: Dick Miles

Well known on the folk circuit, Dick specialises in traditional song, accompanied by English concertina, with which he is an acknowledged expert. An experience not to be missed! Dick Miles
