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.)
Our 2018 season got off to a wonderful start with The Phil Bawn Quartet. We have to wait a month for our next one but we’re really grateful to Ben for coming to our little venue in April. Tickets will go on sale in a couple of weeks time.

We’ve been trying to find a mutually suitable date for Ben to join us for quite a while but it’s not been easy as he is such a busy chap. His voice is pretty special – it has a spine-tingling Jeff Buckley quality. He played at Tree House Bookshop earlier this year and they said it was their best concert yet. He is a singer songwriter who wears his heart on his sleeve. We think he will be perfect for Ryepiece.

Two wonderful musicians who have played in all sorts of bands and styles, Kit and Aaron have built up an incredible chemistry. They blend their fiddle and guitar to create tunes that are moving, stirring, catchy and humorous. Kit adds his distinctive vocals too to tunes that are both traditional and self-penned.
