Folk in the Foyer: Local Derby
A popular local band with a varied repertoire of folk tunes and songs from the British Isles, America and Eastern Europe. You can expect top quality, entertaining music featuring singer/guitarist Viv Bell, accordionist Andrew Rothery, Allyson Craigan playing fiddle, Graham Foord on mandolin and Ian Craigan adding percussion. Their unique sound is created by the blend of instruments and their arrangement of the music. All are accomplished musicians who delight in sharing their passion for music with the audience. The Stoned Cherries
One of Bromyard’s own, a folk band with a twist. Their material is a mix of original songs, traditional tunes and the occasional cover. The band is rooted in traditional and modern folk genres from England, Ireland, North America and the Caribbean, but 60s and 70s prog-rock influences can also surface in some of their material. Their lyrics are carefully crafted, while stage shows are full of energy and have a touch of Tabasco about them. The Cherries create a close relationship with audiences and have a relaxed line in banter and humour. They are : Aly May from near Bromyard, Herefordshire – whistles and backing vocals; Dave Evans from Knightwick, Worcestershire - acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, lead and backing vocals; Matt Donaldson from Clun, Shropshire – bass guitar, foot drum, acoustic guitar, piano accordion and backing vocals; Roger Pugh from Bromyard - acoustic guitar, mandola, spoons, lead and backing vocals. Dave and Roger write the songs and original tunes.
