Bric-a-Brac Wednesday 19 April 2017 at Carrington Folk Club

Our guests on Wednesday 19 April are BRIC a BRAC following a great night 2 years ago.
Then we promoted them as Bella Gaffney with Bric-a-Brac, but they performed as a band at last year’s Gate to Southwell Festival, having first tried this out at the Golden Fleece in 2014.
Chris Elliott plays fiddle and bouzouki, Caitlin Jones plays flutes and whistles and Heather Sirrel plays guitar and bass, although it’s Bella who won a Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections in January and started her acoustic music career several years ago at the famous Topic Folk Club in Bradford. Bella is not their only songwriter as Chris and Caitlin have each composed songs rooted in the tradition which shows their versatility as a band.
They impressed Tony Charnock writing in January’s ‘Tykes News’ “They exhibit a bonhomie that transmits itself easily to the audience, enhanced by enough banter to bring humour into the mix. If they are playing anywhere you are, cancel everything and get down.”
Admission will be £5 for members and £7 for non members
