2020 marks 25 years of making music together for Calstock Arts favourites Kathryn and Sean, one of the UK Folk scene’s most rewardingly enduring partnerships.

To celebrate this milestone, the couple will revisit and reinterpret songs which span their career. From the early days of folk supergroup Equation, to their current release Personae, with a nod or two along the way to their extra-curricular musical adventures, the evening promises a whistle-stop tour through their artistic journey to date.

Billy Mitchell and Bob Fox
The Beehive Arts Centre, Dowell Street, Honiton, EX14 1LZ
7.30pm
General admission £16.00. For more information and tickets and accessible seats telephone 01404 384050 or go to website

Two of the UK’s best known and loved singers - Billy Mitchell (Lindisfarne, Jack the Lad, Pitmen Poets) and Bob Fox (Warhorse Songman, Fox and Luckley, Pitmen Poets) are taking to the road together to tour their show 5 Star B&B throughout the UK. Their last tour as a duo was back in 2010 when their sold out performances earned glowing reviews.
Their individual busy schedules have prevented them from reuniting... until now and we are delighted to welcome them to the Beehive. And what a treat it will be. The duo’s ability to connect with the audience is immediately evident as they lead you through some of their favourite songs including original Lindisfarne classics and traditional folk arrangements of songs such as Sally Wheatley, Meet me on the Corner, Dance to your Daddy, Collier Laddie’s Wife, Big River, Galway Shawl and many more..

 

Peter Knight and John Spiers
The Flavel, Flavel Place, Dartmouth, Devon TQ6 9ND

Box Office telephone 01803 839530 or book online at website

Two genuine legends of the folk world, Peter Knight and John Spiers, are welcomed to the Flavel as a duo for the first time. Best known for their work in Steeleye Span and Bellowhead respectively, Peter and John first came together as an experiment at the Folk East Festival in 2016 where they performed a special “one off” show. The reception was astonishing and Peter and John decided to make their arrangement more permanent and touring together has now become a regular part of their schedule. This will be Peter’s third visit to the Flavel following two very successful shows by his band, Gigspanner.
