Haddenham Ceilidhs, Concerts & Festival


Festival Programme
Saturday 7th December 2013

3.00pm Doors Open  
4.00pm Whapweasel are from the North East. After over a decade at the forefront of the English ceilidh circuit with a BBC Folk Award and more festival appearances than most people have had hot dinners they have now headed for the concert stage and what a great act they are too! A wonderful way to start the Festival and an unique occasion to have have them play both in concert and for the evening ceilidh. Main Hall
5.30pm The Magical Christmas Tree features Pete Morton, Emily Sanders, Chris Parkinson and a tree. Not just any old Christmas Tree, but a very magical one. It makes these three unsuspecting folk performers do things they wouldn't do the other eleven months of the year. After four successful seasons touring the UK, this December show is a festive treat, where the audience pick scrolls from the tree and make every night a unique occasion! Main Hall
7.45pm Sue Brown and Lorraine Irwing
Brought together in the vibrant Oxford folk scene of the 1990s, Sue Brown and Lorraine Irwing have charmed audiences at folk clubs and festivals across the country with their fresh, exciting harmonies and interpretation of traditional song. Something magical happens when they sing together in harmony.
Walter Rose Room
8.00pm Ceilidh with Whapweasel (see 4.00pm) and caller Nick Walden. Main Hall
9.00pm Tom McConville with a scintillating fiddle, a silky smooth voice, a wide grin and a dry Geordie wit, and David Newey, a brilliant guitarist, form the perfect duo. A quote from Seth Lakeman about Tom - "...one of the greatest violinists I've ever heard and by far the biggest influence in my music - a true master." Walter Rose Room
