Black Duck Folk gigs are normally held in Sutton Benger, but one is coming up at Swindon’s STEAM railway museum.

Here are the details forwarded to us:

Faustus were with us on 8th April and it was an absolutely amazing show!  There is a video of their closing song, the Oxeye Man, on our Facebook page  It was a sell-out, with a really appreciative audience and proceeds from the bar raised £205 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.   So, a real success.

Next up are Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, Friday 19th May at STEAM – the museum of the Great Western Railway, Swindon.  Having recently performed at the Royal Albert Hall with Show of Hands (Steve Knightley and Phil Beer) they are on a tour called ‘Out of the Ordinary’ which is taking them to a number of unusual venues (including caves and a round house).  Tickets are £14 in advance, £16 on the door and include a free day ticket to the Museum valid for 12 months, excepting special events, which is worth £8.90.  Doors open at 19:30 and the show starts at 20:00.

Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners of Best Duo 2014 and nominated again 2016,  now have three albums under their belts and have been described as  “This duo has a combination of virtuosity, intensity and charisma that merits a slot on much bigger stages”  John L. Walters, The Guardian

“Rich and complex – there is something of June Tabor about Hannah’s vocal performance – a voice that is strong and flexible and which, coupled with Phillip’s instrumental virtuosity, suggests we’re hearing stars of the future” Dai Jeffries, R2 ****

We’ve heard them several times and love their music which is why it is such a privilege to host them.  Here is a taster

We hope to see you soon.
