22 Sept 23 Marie Little with the Apple Sellers
Marie Little is a native of Salford and now lives in the North-East of England. She has been around the folk scene for many years and has appeared at clubs and festivals all over the UK and Europe. A well-respected figure on the folk scene, her CV includes a number of albums as well as TV, radio and Festival appearances.Marie has never lost her old Salford chat and earthiness. This, along with her warm personality and choice of good quality songs delivered in a relaxed manner, has made her both popular and a must for folk calendars everywhere. Marie made a big impact at last year’s Edgworth Folk Festival and we are delighted to welcome her back to the club.
The Apple Sellers
Featuring Harp & a Monkey frontman Martin Purdy, The Apple Sellers sees the popular Lancashire musician and storyteller team up with gifted double bassist Ian Mayer to create a distinctive and beguiling new musical offering. The pair bonded over a shared passion for traditional and modern folk song and the power of great storytelling. And with rehearsals taking place in a cider press, there could only be one name for their creative partnership. Citing such eclectic influences as Johnny Cash, Nick Cave and many of the old Lancashire folk legends, Mayer and Purdy have created an evocative and immersive musical world underpinned by great stories.
First Friday - Singaround
Folk at the Barlow run a monthly folk music singaround on the first Friday of the month. This starts at 8pm, takes place in the Reading Room (otherwise known as the bar) at the Barlow, and there is a collection taken which will hopefully cover the hire of the room.
Third Friday - Concert
Folk at the Barlow run a concert on the third Friday of each month, featuring two "spots" by a guest act, usually of national acclaim, and one spot from a support act, always talented and usually local. All this is preceded by a jolly bashing out of tunes by the house band, kicking off at 7:40pm. The concert starts at 8pm. Tickets are usually priced at £10 each.
