20210129: Friday 29th January 2021: Songs and Verses from North Cambridge


8pm (Zoom meeting opens at 7:45pm)

This is a virtual event on Zoom and can also be viewed on Facebook. This event is free and tickets are not required.


During 2020, Emily Peasgood has been leading Cambridge North Folk Song Project. Emily and songwriters Anna Hester and Bob Hines have worked online with local people, musicians and poets to create and compile a body of 35 songs and verses that capture the character of north Cambridge today. The project concludes with Songs and Verses from north Cambridge, a printed and online book that will be available to all at no cost in 2021. The book covers a wide range of themes and musical genres, from local histories to urban myths.

On 29th January, we will hear an acoustic selection of songs and verses that feature in the book, with performances from: Andrew Burn, Anna Hester, Anna Shelton, Bob Hines, Emily Peasgood, George Breakfast, Guy Dinwiddy, Jessica Law, Lucy Rococoa [Sin Cru], Neil Banks and Stefan Kaye. This event is a unique opportunity to hear a new body of contemporary songs and verses created and situated in the north Cambridge community, which we hope will live on for future generations to enjoy.


Anyone who would like to be in the audience is welcome. Joining instructions will be emailed to performers and those on the Cambridge Folk Club mailing list. If you would like to be in the Zoom audience and are not on our mailing list, please email enquiries@cambridgefolkclub.co.uk

This event will also be streamed live on the Cambridge Folk Club Facebook page from 8pm as an alternative to Zoom.
