Ticket details to follow.
14 November 2018, ‘Dart Songs’ in Stoke Gabriel. An evening with local historian, John Risdon, with his fascinating tales of the history of the Dart estuary, with accompanying beautiful photos, with songs and tunes from the ‘Dart Songs’ album which Steve recorded with Blue Jewel, performed by Cosgrave & Banks. Details to follow, or click here.
16 November 2018, Brixham Library. Details to follow. Due to popular demand! We are delighted to have been invited back to this entrepreneurial library… Well, ‘library’, yes, in a sense… but only in the sense that Clark Kent is just an awkward guy with big specs, or Bruce Wayne is just a multi-billionaire with chips on his shoulders… For, by night, this ordinary-seeming library transforms by a magical alchemical process, whose secret is known only to a revered few within the inner sanctum, into the Brixham music venue for those-in-the-know. So keep your ear to the ground, and with any luck, you might come by a ticket to hear the South Devon folk duo that many people are talking about at South Devon’s’ most exclusive-illusive venue…
Our current programme is a rich smörgåsbord of beautiful music, traditional and contemporary, from Britain, Europe (mainly France, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe) and beyond, featuring tracks from our first CD, Warp & Weft., and with some great new tunes and songs for 2018.
- England, Ireland and Scotland, including original tunes and songs by Mike and Steve (including a couple of favourites from the Dart Songs album Steve recorded with Blue Jewel.)
- France, including Brittany
- Sweden, Norway
- Russia, Rumania and the Balkans
- USA and Canada
