Our pal James Fagan who regulars will know from his work with The Melrose Quartets and alongside his wife Nancy Kerr has teamed up with fellow Antipodean Jamie McClennan.
Drawing from the folk, blues and bluegrass that inspired them, the Brothers’ repertoire includes such songs as The Voyage Of The Buffalo, an up-tempo NZ ballad written in the 1800s about a convict transporting timber ship and Poison Train - a song by Mick O’Rourke about the closure of Australia’s rural railways that James learned from his father.
All performed with the effortless virtuosity we have come to expect.
For Fagan and McClennan this is about bringing their distinct Antipodean-steeped folk to a new audience, with songs and tunes brought to life by a fraternal bond between two very silly, but captivatingly gifted musicians.
This is going to be awesome!
Admission £10 (£8 unwaged)
