This Sunday (15th October) sees what is hoped will be the first of a new series of events in the town. The Eden Valley Artistic Network (EVAN) and local institution Plug ‘n’ Play have come together to put on this exciting new night.
Three local singer-songwriters will play their original music, talk about their inspirations and approaches to songwriting and even take questions from the audience too.
The event will feature the brilliant Will Harris of local favourites MyLittleBrother alongside Penrith’s Cal-Rush Williams who has recently released his debut single ‘Kraken Tides’.
Joining them will be BBC Folk Awards nominee and world renowned banjo virtuoso, Dan Walsh. Dan was born in Penrith but now plays all over the world, both solo and the with acclaimed Urban Folk Quartet. A spokesperson for EVAN said, ‘considering its modest population, the Eden Valley produces some incredible songwriting talent.
These Songwriters’ Circle events were inspired by the BBC series of the same name and are a celebration of the phenomenal, original music that comes from our corner of the world.’
All are welcome at this exciting, informal event at the Playhouse Bar, Auction Mart Lane, Penrith. Doors open at 7pm on Sunday and entry is just £5 on the door.
