We’re always on the lookout for interesting acts to bring some magic to Friday nights in our little corner of the world. (In fact since we launched the website and twitter feed we’ve been approached by all sorts of artists and bands who’d like to come and play.)
It’s good to be back. We kicked off 2019 with the compelling stories and original songs of Daria Kulesh. If you missed her then find out more here.
We’ve got our next few concerts lined up now, starting with a welcome return for our dear friend…..

As the nights start drawing in we all need cheering up and there’s no better way to put a smile on your face than to spend an hour or two in the company of Gerry and the wonderful musicians he always brings with him. He’ll have you laughing, crying and doing a Mexican wave before you know it.
This clip from last year’s Folk Festival in Banbury gives the uninitiated a sense of what to expect from a Gerry Colvin concert……

Ríoghnach Connolly and Stuart McCallum are the creative heart of The Breath. Ríoghnach’s deeply soulful, utterly engaging, stop-you-in-your-tracks voice – whether delicate and hushed or powerful and gutsy – coupled with Stuart’s understated brilliance and their exquisitely crafted songs, that give The Breath such emotional depth.
The Guardian review of 2018 said Ríoghnach Connolly’s voice was “as tender as the grasp of a child’s hand”. That pretty much nails it.
We’re so lucky to have such incredible artists coming to Ryepiece.

The Little Unsaid
Friday 29th November 2019
Fronted by singer and writer John Elliott, The Little Unsaid are an alt-folk-leftfield rock band who reflect upon the atmosphere of division and unrest that has crept into everyday life. But John’s lyrics seek to explore those little pools of light in the darkness; moments of real connection, meaning and magic amidst the chaos.
John does lovely solo gigs but we’ve decided to invite the whole band to come and play for us in November. It’s going to be cosy but very special.

Ben Morgan-Brown is a singer/songwriter and accomplished finger style guitarist – named by FATEA magazine as one of the ‘Rising Stars of 2018’ and described by Tom Robinson of BBC6 Music as ‘the brilliant Ben Morgan-Brown’, his intimate and often highly personal songs and performances have drawn comparisons to Bert Jansch, John Smith, Nick Drake & Ryley Walker.
