Two great British folk musicians are coming to Essex for one night only. Huw Williams and Maartin Allcock are playing at the Blue Boar in Maldon on Sunday 18th November.
Huw Williams is a singer/songwriter whose songs have been covered by artists across Europe and America including Fairport Convention and Simon Nicol. He has regularly contributed to BBC Radio 4 and is also an Eisteddford-winning step dancer!
He has choreographed a TV show, taught Colin Jackson how to clog dance and is the brains behind Calen, the Welsh traditional band storming the folk scene at the moment.
Maartin Allcock is a multi-instrumentalist who has been touring and recording since 1976 with a wide range of artistes including Jethro Tull, Fairport Convention, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Mike Harding, Robert Plant and many more.
A regular contributor to Acoustic magazine he has transcribed numerous song and music books for many musicians including Richard Thompson, Dave Swarbrick, Keiran Halpin and Fairport Convention. He is currently working on a new bouzouki book (a Greek musical instrument) for Andy Irvine.
Now Huw and Maartin come together with a performance of stories about life on the road, soundchecks and how and why some of the songs were written. An evening of foot tapping tunes, beautiful songs with anecdeotes that will both and captivate and make you laugh.
Essex has a rich folk scene, see our guide to folk music in Essex to learn more.
