|Sam Carter

(1.9.18)  Sam Carter

Since being named Best Newcomer at the 2010 BBCRadio 2 Folk Awards, Sam  has been stirring audiences from Camden to Canada, via an attention-grabbing appearance on Later... with Jools Holland. Sam has a new album out and we are very happy to see him at the Davy Lamp for the first time.


Chris Denny and Emily
 
(6.10.18) Chris Sherburn, Denny Bartley and Emily Sanders

Chris & Denny are firmly back touring together. Chris must be one of the best and most dynamic concertina players on the planet, and Denny has a powerful singing style that is all his own, matched with some equally powerful guitar playing.  The duo are now joined by the wonderful fiddle player and singer Emily Sanders who brings magic accompaniment and beautiful harmonies. Add to all that some great crack in between songs and you’ve got the perfect night.  Don't miss this!

 
Allan Taylor
 
(3.11.18) Allan Taylor

Allan's been coming to the Davy Lamp for many years and we're always very glad to welcome him back.  An impeccable performer and a masterful songwriter, Allan's songs have been covered by countless other performers, but nobody does them quite like him. Allan had to cancel his date with us at the beginning of the year due to illness, so he's all the more welcome tonight!


 

Degree Students

The now annual occasion when we hand over the ropes of the Davy Lamp to the up and coming performers from the Folk Degree at Newcastle University.

Don't miss it!
