Folk Night at Ushaw
WINDY GYLE BAND (Paul Knox, Ged & Nikki Lawson, Anthony & Heather Robb) welcome two new members this year; traditional fiddle player Ruth Brown and top moothie player Jimmy Little.
This maintains and expands the bands combination of freshness and tradition thanks to having a member born in each decade from the 1930s to 1980s.
Their driving, toe-tapping music (on fiddles, moothie, pipes & guitar) owes much to the ‘Shepherds’ Northumbrian style.
Here’s what others say: “This music really talks… uncluttered and proud, it is only one step away from the tradition which inspired it … ( fRoots). “Great tunes, some fantastic harmonies …such a sweet, sweet sound, this lot!” (Karen Tweed). “Music truly does break down barriers, especially when it’s as sumptuous as this”! (Tony Hendry: Living Tradition).
Recently returned from their eleventh Whitby Folk Week the band is delighted to be back in the wonderful setting of Ushaw.
