Owl Light Trio are Jim Penny on concertina, Jane Griffiths on fiddle and viola and Colin Fletcher on guitar. All three musicians have deep roots in traditional music, share a passion for tunes from Ireland, the UK and Brittany, and draw upon their combined influences to create complex, compelling and heartfelt arrangements. Between them they have performed and recorded with Maddy Prior, Nancy Kerr, Tim van Eyken, Red Dog Green Dog, and Duotone. Owl Light Trio has performed at Oxford, Sidmouth, Shrewsbury, Tandem and Klangrausch folk festivals. Their debut album ‘Owl Light’ was described by fRoots as 'A fine CD of beautifully-crafted music that is both memorable and clever'.
In this rare solo set, Steph West draws two strands of her varied musical life together: intricate dance tunes from England and Ireland with evocative songs including blues and jazz influences. Drawing on two decades of performing experience, Steph creates broad landscapes of sound as well as intimate moments.
Finstock Unplugged is a friendly sing-around club that meets on the last Monday of every month at Wilcote Art Studios (4 Hunt's Copse, Wilcote Riding OX7 3DX). Feel free to come along and sing a song or two, or just to listen.
