Summer Special: Riley Baugus

We are delighted to present this rare opportunity to see one of the giants of old-time banjo.

Riley is the real deal & learned his music from the old time traditional musicians. He played a major role in the music for the film Cold Mountain, he recorded with Alison Krauss and Robert Plant on the classic album Raising Sand and plays in the Willie Nelson Band and Dirk Powell Band. He’s toured in England with Ira Bernstein for their show Appalachian Roots.

His fierce, intricate clawhammer banjo is some of the best and most authentic you will ever hear.

Admission £8 (£6 unwaged)
