Narthen

Narthen

Featuring Barry Coope of Coope Boyes and Simpson, Jo Freya of Blowzabella/Moirai, four-time BBC folk award nominee Jim Causley, and Fi Fraser of The Old Fashioned/Polka Works – this is a quartet of supurb vocal harmonies and multi-instrumentalism. 

The material of the group features “songs that will touch your heart, engage your intellect and wow your ears. Expect pith, pathos and polyphony”. Narthen is a new name for a new venture. Familiar yet shiny and new which means you get that great mix of comforting familiarity and constant surprises.

“Full of surprises. I didn’t know they did that…well they do!” Froots

It’s a brilliant demonstration of the ensemble’s multi-faceted musical personality, whereupon they move effortlessly and appropriately between modes, juxtaposing pathos and heartbreak with seriously uplifting humour and historically informed commentary a memorable and life-affirming set.” FolkRadio UK

We are offering three ticket types for this event:

- Standard ticket is the ‘normal’ price that we would charge for the event
- Pay a bit more is for those who can afford to, and would like to help support live music and our artists
- Pay a bit less is for those who would find the standard ticket a bit of a stretch, for whatever reason

You can purchase whichever ticket you like; you don’t need to give a reason, and you won’t be asked for any proof of need. For online events you only need to purchase one ticket per household/computer.

We are trialling this ticket system to help make our events more accessible to more people, and to allow those who would happily pay a bit more to do so easily, helping us to subsidise tickets for those who can’t afford them.
