Grayshott Folk Club's Christmas Special with: Magpie Lane (Oxford)
We welcome back Magpie Lane, who are renowned for their harmony singing, beautiful playing and melodic presentations of traditional Christmas and seasonal songs. Their famous Christmas shows in Oxford sell out every year. This will be a relaxing and gentle way in to the festive season, for those who cherish the memories of Christmas past.
Mervyn Mewis & Kathryn Young- Mervyn and Kathryn enchanted us when they supported Faustus for us in April and tonight they will play us some wonderful old tunes and seasonal offerings on the Hammer Dulcimer, Psaltrey and Harp that they have actually made themselves.
Please Note: This is our "Christmas Special" when we limit our numbers so that we can seat the audience around larger tables together. We encourage the audience to bring their own food and table decorations if they want to (but this is not obligatory), whilst we supply complimentary Christmas Crackers and Mince Pies. We have our usual, fully-licensed pay Bar which is stocked with a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Mulled Wine will be our speciality this evening!
At: Grayshott Village Hall
Tickets £15 from all the usual places

Magpie Lane's music is unmistakably rooted in the English tradition. This 6 piece band is based around the composition of a nineteenth century village band with fiddle, cello, concertina, whistles and percussion to the fore. The group's instrumental prowess is matched, if not surpassed, by its vocal strength with melodious solo performances and powerful harmonies as the band's trademarks.
