Presenting England’s traditional songs with a bold and fresh approach, The Dovetail Trio explore familiar narratives and modern themes with infectious energy and a passion for musical heritage.

And they will be bringing that energy to Forest Folk in North Boarhunt on Monday.

The new collaboration effortlessly combines the distinctive voices and acclaimed instrumental talents of BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominee Jamie Roberts, BBC Performing Arts Award winner Rosie Hood and Newcastle folk degree alumnus Matt Quinn.

Barnsley’s Jamie Roberts is renowned for his narrative singing and driving guitar rhythms. In 2013 he was a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominee with duo Gilmore & Roberts.

Rosie Hood’s pure voice and engaging performances are garnering widespread acclaim. She has a keen eye on the history of the songs she sings, particularly those of her native Wiltshire.

Multi-instrumentalist Matt Quinn has been playing the melodeon, mandolin and fiddle, and singing on the English folk scene for the past seven years in various bands including The Mighty Quinns and the Eliza Carthy Ceilidh Band.

Doors open 7.30pm for an 8pm start. Tickets are £12, call (023) 9226 4288 or email info@forestfolk.co.uk
