Grace Petrie and Hannah James
Heath Street Baptist Church, 84 Heath Street, Hampstead NW3 1DN
Saturday 7th October, 7:30pm
“Two of British folk music’s most powerful artists are coming together for a very special one-off tour this Autumn.
BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner Hannah James (Lady Maisery, Songs of Separation, Jigdoll, Kerfuffle) has been beguiling audiences for over fifteen years with her breathtaking solo performance style. Marrying flawless accordion playing and beautiful vocal stylings with inventive foot percussion and clog dancing, she is regarded as one of the most innovative and entertaining performers on the UK folk scene. Leicester’s Grace Petrie (The Anti-Capitalist Roadshow, BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show) is internationally renowned as one of Britain’s most respected contemporary political songwriters, engaging audiences across Britain and Canada with thought-provoking lyrics and an impassioned vocal delivery. From opposite ends of the ocean-wide spectrum of folk, two of its brightest voices will explore their own interpretations of what it means for us today, from the deepest roots of tradition to the sharpest views on the times we live in. Advance booking highly recommended.
