Rhiannon Giddens with Francesco Turrisi

Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops, Nashville TV series) is an American artist of folk and traditional music, played on fiddle and banjo; Francesco Turrisi is an Italian pianist and percussionist well versed in jazz, early music and Mediterranean music; at first blush, their worlds don’t overlap. But at a chance musical meet-up in Ireland they found that her 19th century American minstrel banjo tunes and his traditional Sicilian Tamburello (tambourine) rhythms fit very naturally together.

Daniel O'Donnell

with special guest Mary Duff

It’s no surprise that Daniel O’Donnell is one of the best loved artistes.

He is the only artist in the world to score a hit in the UK album charts every year since 1988, an unprecedented and unbroken 30 year span and in doing so, he has outshone everyone from Michael Jackson and Madonna to U2 and The Rolling Stones. He accomplished this with his latest album Christmas with Daniel O’Donnell, released in November 2017, it entered the UK Artist Albums Chart at No.19.

Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters

This event is now sold out. Please call the box office on 01256 844244 to be added to the waiting list.

Their music has been described as Appalachian honky tonk, and being from the mountains of North Carolina, that’s maybe as close as it gets. But, The Honeycutters have a richer depth of character than that suggests – a factor that has won them a much wider span of appreciation around the world.
