What's on



Award winning duo Chris Elliott and Caitlin Jones have been playing music together since they met in 2014. Both proudly from Staffordshire, they bring a mix of traditional and self-penned ballads about place and identity, old and new. Driving guitar and bouzouki accompany haunting whistles and harmonium along with intricate and warm vocal harmonies. Expect to hear songs written for and collected from all around the Midlands and beyond, accompanied by the heartfelt human stories that inspired them. With their charming storytelling and warm Midlands humour, the pair love to take audiences to “an area of diverse landscapes, history and traditions”. In 2019 they released their debut album ‘Carry Me Home’ and their second album ‘Game Of Halves’ is now in the pipeline.

A welcome return to Hambledon of this first-class duo. Now in their 10th year as full-time musicians, Kip Winter and Dave Wilson bring a sense of intimacy to every venue, blending superb, often hard-hitting original songs, stunning harmonies and musicianship with sometimes hilarious humour and tales of life on the road. Kip (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute) ‘simply has a voice to die for’ ( John Roffey, Maverick Magazine), whilst Dave (vocals, guitar and banjo) is now rightly recognized as being amongst the top tier of British songwriters, with his songs sung in folk clubs across the UK and beyond. Together, their voices are sublime.

‘In 30 years of listening to folk music, I have never heard two voices blend so perfectly.’ (David Aird, Chairman, Glenfarg Folk Club)

‘Kip Winter's outstanding vocal talents and Dave Wilson's stunning abilities as a songwriter, composer, guitarist and singer welded seamlessly to produce a most memorable evening.’ (John Waltham, Living Tradition)

A highly original and energetic musical force that combines captivating songwriting, fiery tunes and powerful three part harmonies. The Shackleton Trio are Georgia Shackleton (fiddle, vocals), Aaren Bennett (guitar) and Nic Zuppardi (mandolin). Natural talents of the folk tradition, their self-penned material blends seamlessly with their imaginative yet authentic re-workings of  traditional folk standards, influenced by British, American and Scandinavian folk traditions but remaining firmly rooted in the local tradition of the band’s native East Anglia.
