HaddoThe Village Folk Club in the centre of Manchester continues its fine series of concerts with the visit of Haddo aka husband and wife team Will and Nicky Pound.  The pair are toward the traditional end of the folk spectrum, but also include bluegrass and their own compositions in their range of material.
