The Langmoor Marquee

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9

4pm: Sunjay

Tickets: £10. (Under 16: £7)

 

You could be forgiven for thinking at first listen that Sunjay is older than his 22 years.

With a relaxed and confident manner, vocal style and mastery of his instrument he walks on to a stage and addresses the audience as though he is sitting down to play music with a group of close friends; a completely natural approach for a young man who picked up the guitar when he was just four years old and hasn’t put it down since. Sunjay’s style has that natural drift between folk and blues and both camps have recognised his obvious flair. Make sure you catch him at Lyme Folk Weekend.

 

5.30pm: The Longest Johns

Tickets: £5.

 

Five blokes, hearty singing, great harmonies. The Longest Johns will, without doubt, rock Lyme Regis with their own special blend of traditional folk songs, shanties, and some of their own compositions. They sing maritime songs alongside the more unusual and less traditional folk tunes. After becoming a five-man group in 2015, they've taken their harmonies to new heights, whilst always retaining just the right mix of quality and hilarity. Whether performing songs that are hundreds of years old, or their own original creations, the Johns bring a new feel to audiences wherever they go.

 

 

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10

4pm: Nick Edward Harris

Tickets: £5.

 

Combining his beguiling and imaginative vocals with a percussive and progressive guitar style, Nick Edward Harris will captivate audiences in the Langmoor Marquee.

In 2014 he was selected from thousands for the much coveted Glastonbury Emerging Talent Long-list, as well as finding time to perform at Wilderness, Cambridge Folk Festival, Glastonbury and Green Man. 

 

5.30pm: Jim Causley with Nick Wyke & Becki Driscoll

Tickets: £10. (Under 16: £7)

 

Once again our brilliant festival patron Jim Causley will be appearing at several venues throughout Lyme Folk Weekend. This special concert brings him together with Nick Wyke & Becki Driscoll to perform songs from Jim's new album Forgotten Kingdom, which confirmed his status as one England’s finest folk singers, musicians and composers.
