Listen to Some English Folk Music

I hope the animals at London Zoo like folk music, because they live right opposite Cecil Sharp House, the home of The English Folk Dance and Song Society. This summer they have a line-up of great musicians and songwriters that will encourage the sun to keep its hat on, and stick with us a while before heading off for Timbuktu.

Hannah James & Sam Sweeney
8th May, 7.30pm, 12

As well as playing the accordion, cello, and fiddle, Hannah also performs clog dancing. No wonder this multi-faceted duo has been nominated for the Horizon Award and Best Duo at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. They have recorded two albums, but are now planning pursuing other projects. Hannah and Sam are currently on their farewell tour, and Cecil House is lucky enough to be one of their chosen destinations.

Blair Dunlop
31st May, 7.30pm, 14

Having made his mark in 2012 with his debut album, Blight & Blossom, Blair Dunlop is performing at Cecil House to promote the new release of his second album, House of Jacks. He is a singer that appeals to all generations.

Bella Hardy
5th July, 7.30pm 12

Having won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year 2014, Bella Hardy has already had the best thirtieth birthday present she could ask for. She is now spreading the joy with a UK tour, Thirty for 30 that will last thirty days. Cecil House is proud to be a London pitstop.
