Part of Ventnor Fringe Festival 2018
Isle of Wight Venue Campaign’s present a sublime evening packed full of acoustic live folk from Rosalie Deighton and Edwina Hayes with support from Kindred Spirit.
Rosalie’s songwriting heroes comprise all the classic names from Tom Waits to Bob Dylan. Among her fellow female artists, unsurprisingly she’s a huge fan of Emmylou Harris. But she also cites Maria McKee, Mary Margaret O’Hara, Bonnie Raitt and Dolly Parton as inspirations.
Edwina Hayes numbers Michael Parkinson and Nanci Griffith among her fans. Her beautifully written songs and charming stage presence have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-americana. She has opened numerous shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison and the title song of her album Pour Me A Drink was covered by Nanci Griffith who calls her ‘the sweetest voice in England’. Her cover of the Randy Newman song ‘Feels Like Home’ was featured in the Cameron Diaz film My Sister’s Keeper and has since had over six million plays on You Tube.’
There'll be support from Prog Rock Folk band Kindred Spirit performing as a Duo Elaine Samuels and Martin Ash.
The event takes place on Friday 10th August between 7.30pm – 9.30pm at St Catherie’s Church, Ventnor.
Tickets are priced at £10 each. Book now to avoid disappointment. Suitable for all ages.
