Bringing In The May: songs and stories for summer
An evening of songs and stories to celebrate May Day, Beltane, Calan Mai, and the coming of summer. Expect songs of Maytime goings on, of trees and troubadours and the Devil outwitted, woven through with tales of otherworldly transformations in a landscape of legend, in a time out of time.

Blanche & Mike bring you harmony voices, guitar, octave mandola, laud & bowed psaltery, and Cath Little will weave weird, wise & wonderful stories to welcome in the summer.

Tickets £10 online from Ticketsource or £12 on the door
