Our new regular Thursday music nights are an opportunity to enjoy some of the best of what our region has to offer, from the very local to those from only slightly further afield. With sometimes one, two or three acts on the schedule, and presented in a safe and friendly environment, we hope that you’ll enjoy the company of long standing Ashcroft Arts favourites or find something new to love.
This week’s line-up features Nick Hart, a folk singer deeply rooted in the English tradition. Described as “The real deal” by Mike Harding, his desire to preserve the nuances of traditional singing informs his minimal approach to accompaniment, and his songs are delivered with a great emphasis on storytelling. His repertoire of songs, drawn largely from his native East Anglia, reflect his understanding of both the depth and breadth of material within the English tradition and he is fast acquiring a reputation as an engaging and entertaining performer. 2017 saw the release of his first solo album,Nick Hart Sings Eight English Folk Songs.
