& Friends

Christina Alden and Alex Patterson

Janice Burns and Jon Doran

Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis.
Sunday August 27, 8pm.

AFTER taking a well-earned break last year, Lyme Folk Weekend patrons Ninebarrow return to the festival with another group of friends to present the latest of their brilliant one-off collaboration shows.


Jon and Jay bring their innovative and captivating take on the folk tradition. Combining breathtaking vocal harmonies and melodies, delivering songs and stories inspired by landscape and history of Dorset.

Joining them on stage will be Christina Alden and Alex Patterson, multi-instrumentalists and songwriters from Norwich who wowed audiences at Lyme Folk Weekend in 2019. Their music is rich with intertwining harmony, sensitive accomplished musicianship and a creative song-writing style that is both delicate and moving. Deeply inspired by the world around them, they have a keen environmental eye to craft stories with the natural world at its heart, reflecting on the relationship between humans and the wild.

Completing the line-up are  Janice Burns and Jon Doran, an Anglo-Scottish duo who came together after discovering a shared love of traditional music rapidly making a name for themselves on the folk scene. Janice & Jon’s compelling storytelling comes alive through tight vocal harmonies and sensitive interplay between mandolin, bouzouki, and guitar.

It will be a special night of wonderful music, a fitting finale to the weekend's theatre shows.


TICKETS: £22 in advance, £27 on the door. NB This is a SEATED ONLY show.
