Past Event

Back on stage, after a couple of years pursuing other musical projects, award-winning folk artist, Fay Hield teams up once more with Sam Sweeney, Rob Harbron and Ben Nicholls to tour her new album, Wrackline. 

Exploring ideas of the space between, Wrackline looks to ghosts, fairies, spirits and talking animals to understand what it is about the unknown that entrances us. Working with traditional materials and ideas, Fay explores the feelings they evoke and how they relate to her experience in the contemporary world. Universal ideas of death, love and motherhood echo through time and space.  

Shifting between lighthearted and darker sides of the human psyche, Fay breathes life and meaning into old stories presenting them with a fresh twist and consummate musicianship from her guests, including fiddle, concertina, guitar, banjo and double bass.   

Expect to be enveloped in music, woven through magical stories and teased into thinking about your relationship with the world around you. 

Pre-concert event, 6.15pm – 7.15pm
Observe Fay and guests as they create a brand-new folk arrangement for performance later in the evening. (Please request ticket when booking for the 8pm concert) 


“A stunning and complete work of art, performed with Hield’s distinctive magic.”
