Date(s) - 14/11/2018
The Old Dispensary
13 St Mary's Street,
Ely Folk Club’s regular monthly concert of folk and roots music featuring Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith with a support spot from Martin Sumpton.
Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith are one of the finest duos to have emerged onto the British folk and acoustic scene in recent years. Their combination of outstanding vocal work, sensitive instrumentation, and a powerful social conscience has brought them widespread critical acclaim. The songs themselves are always given centre stage but they are brought to life with stunning musical arrangements and vocals. There is an integrity that shines through their performances and a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice. Their critically acclaimed second album ‘Night Hours’ was released in December 2016 on Fellside Recordings. Described as ‘exhilaratingly diverse and full of impeccably crafted songs’, it has cemented the duo’s reputation as two of the most exciting musicians and social commentators on the scene. In September 2018 Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith will release their third album with a major UK tour. The album will be a further development of the duo’s songwriting and the contemporary sound that attracted such critical acclaim on their second release, Night Hours.
