Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar

Twice BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners and nominees this year come to Chesterfield!

Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar met in 2011. Soon after the joining of the pair, they were signed to Fellside Records and in July 2012 released their debut album, The Queen’s Lover. Numerous tours followed as the duo developed and honed their stage craft, becoming one of the most sought after young acts on the English Folk Scene. 

There’s an admirable honesty and sincerity as they tackle old songs, trad pieces, instrumentals and self-penned compositions. Russell’s clear and natural vocal – underpinned by his sublime acoustic guitar work- is a key part of the sound, but the icing is Algar’s fiddle playing. Sometimes delicate, occasionally raucous, he adds imaginative sparkle.” – Acoustic Magazine

Our support act for this evening will be a regular from the Attic Folk Club days, John Prentice, along with his partner the singing and whistle playing Jill Drury.
