The Music Room - Live!

Our event in June 2016 was headlined by

Jon Dyer and Alfie Gidley

Live music from Jon Dyer and Alfie Gidley at Hollocombe Music Club - June 2016

Jon and Alfie's repertoire is rooted in the celtic tradition but, with many original tunes by Alfie, a handful of English tunes and the odd Balkan melody thrown in for good measure, their performance kept us all entranced right up to the last note. The duo are not afraid to make their chosen material their own, intricately arranging tunes to fit the musical landscapes they create, bending tunes to fit new and often unpredictable time signatures and modes. But more than that, they were two very nice guys who loved their music and enjoyed playing to a lively audience. They were joined for a couple of songs by Polly Meyrick whose voice lifted the soul. If this is the future of folk music, it's in safe hands.

There are some excellent recordings of them to listen to on bandcamp.

Also appearing was:

Tim Budden
