North West Folk music clubs picBank Holiday on its way and three mouth watering concerts coming up. The sun's shining too. At least for now.

Close to Sold Out

Friday sees the long awaited Friends New and Old concert to celebrate five years of Friends of Folk and the launch of a new partnership with the Rose Theatre in Ormskirk. The box office is on 01695 584480

Maddy Prior, Ken Nicol, Abbie Lathe, Chris & Siobhan Nelson, Blackheart, Andrew Keeling, The Bailey Sisters and Simon Fox take to the stage. It might be quicker to list those who aren't taking part. With that lot to get through it'll probably finish about 3 am.

The tour stops at the Hornby Institute near Lancaster on Thursday 6th May. Tickets, priced
