SONG - Shammick Acoustic - Kieran Towers & Charlotte Carrivick
Charlotte Carrivick first came to Shammick with her twin sister Laura back in 2011, and they stunned us with their Devon ‘greengrass’ music and songs!  Now not restricting themselves to only playing with each other, Charlotte has teamed up with old-time fiddle champion, Kieron Towers.  Charlotte started her musical adventure at the age of nine, playing classical guitar, later going on to mandolin, flatpick guitar, clawhammer banjo, and fiddle, being awarded first place in the Friends of American Old Time Music and Dance contests for banjo and fiddle.  Now one of the UK’s most sought-after bluegrass and old-time musicians, as well as being a multi-instrumentalist, Charlotte is a singer, songwriter and composer performing internationally. As to Kieran, he has been playing this music for as long as he can remember.  There are few fiddle players who can rival his creativity, and his love of the music and of playing are obvious in his performance.  The two of them make a sound that is simultaneously new and refreshing yet rooted in tradition.

 

Admission on guest nights £8.00 (£7.00 if bought in advance) ~ and members of Shammick Acoustic get a further reduction, priced at £7.00 (£6.00 if bought in advance). PLEASE NOTE: ‘paid in advance’ means paid, it doesn’t mean ‘reserved in advance’. Advance tickets can be bought up to a month before the event at Shammick Acoustic Sessions, OR at The Pack O’ Cards OR at Pet's Pantry in Combe Martin High Street. Advance tickets for non-members, can also be purchased by going to WeGotTickets

SONG - Topsham Folk Song Club - Peter Knight and John Spiers - Matthews Hall, Fore Street, Topsham EX3 0HF. 8.00pm - £12.00 advance/£14.00 on the door.
The organisers of the 2016 Folkeast Festival had the grand idea of pairing legendary fiddle player Peter Knight (ex-Steeleye Span) and melodeon player extraordinaire John Spiers (ex-Bellowhead) for a special one-off concert at that year’s festival. It ended up being a festival highlight. This then is the debut tour of two of the finest musicians in their respective fields.
