Trad night: Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp

- (Doors: 7:00pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

Presented by Mike Norris, former EFDSS chair and host of the Classic Folk Radio show, these unamplified traditional performances will take place in the intimate Storrow Hall at Cecil Sharp House. Enjoy tales of love and lust, incest and murder, humour and tragedy, sung by some of today's finest traditional singers.

Laura and Ted take a no-nonsense approach to traditional English folk song, taking their cues from revival singers such as Frankie Armstrong, Peter Bellamy and the Watersons. With repertoire drawn from their homes in the North West and East Anglia, expect strong vocals, tight harmonies and unfussy arrangements of songs sung with passion.

Promoted by EFDSS.
