Bella Gaffney & Polly Bolton 8.30 pm Wednesday 18 September 2019

BELLA GAFFNEY & POLLY BOLTON Bella is no stranger to the club having started her acoustic career several years ago at Bradford’s Topic Folk Club. She then came to Nottingham University for her degree where she formed her backing trio, Bric-a-Brac, two of whom Chris and Caitlin were recent guests in May. She writes folk inspired songs which she performs with her own arrangements of traditional pieces and won the Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections last year. She moved to York after jamming with the accomplished mandolin player, Polly Bolton in autumn 2017 and a great musical collaboration began leading to festival bookings both as a duo and a group called Bella, Polly and the Magpies. The organiser at Cambridge Folk Festival said they were “well- liked by the punters, a proper hit” which we can endorse from their performance last month in the main marquee at Warwick Folk Festival. Admission is only £4 for members and £6 for non members
