Jack Rutter

Thu 25 May, 2023 @ Thu 25 May, 2023

Thursday 25th May 2023

Doors 19:30
Onstage from 20:00

Yorkshire folk singer Jack Rutter has established himself as one of the standout voices of the folk, roots and acoustic music scene in recent years. 

A hugely engaging stage presence, his soaring vocal, powerhouse guitar and bouzouki playing and masterful arrangements of traditional songs and contemporary covers have enthralled audiences from the largest festival main stages to the most intimate folk clubs. 

Following on from his critically acclaimed second album Gold of Scar & Shale, 2022 will see the release of a brand new EP, with 2023 bringing the successor to Gold of Scar & Shale in the form of a new album of traditional songs.

‘Among Britain’s finest traditional singers.’

– Folk Radio UK

‘An outstanding performer.’

– The Independent

‘You always want an exciting new discovery at a festival, and for many it was Jack Rutter who provided just that. What prowess he showed in music, he matched with his skills as a raconteur; his love and respect for the songs in turn made the audience joyful.’ 

– Louder Than War Magazine reviewing Underneath the Stars Festival

‘In the spirit of the old traditional singers, Jack Rutter takes a song, shapes it, lives with it and brings out something unique. This album makes my heart sing.’

– Kathryn Tickell OBE, BBC Radio 3

‘One of the best albums of its kind in recent times.’

– Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2 reviewing Gold of Scar & Shale

Knight & Spiers

Wed 26 April, 2023 @ Wed 26 April, 2023

Wednesday April 26th ’23

Doors 19:30
Onstage from 20:00

On a summer’s day in 2016, the organisers of FolkEast Festival masterminded one of the most intriguing and exciting collaborations on today’s folk scene. 

Peter Knight, legendary violinist and ex-member of folk-rock band Steeleye Span was paired with leading melodeon player and ex-Bellowhead member, John Spiers, for a special one-off performance which left audiences in awe. With no space to be found in the marquee, people stood five deep in the pouring rain in order to witness the bringing together of two of the most genuinely gifted musicians in their respective fields.

With a standing ovation and roars for more, and much to the delight of folk fans everywhere, Knight and Spiers decided not to leave things there. 

The pairing of violin and melodeon is not a new one, but in the hands of Knight and Spiers, Improvisation and invention meet the listener at every turn. Together they have created a musical document that resonates with history, but also something that should inspire future generations of musicians to engage with Britain’s folk dancing heritage, and the beautiful, mysterious tunes that can be found within that heritage.

These uniquely gifted musicians make a sublime pairing, and create a live performance to be remembered for a long time. 

“Knight’s playing is a revelation. A world away from folky fiddling, it’s fully informed by the classical style, all long sweeping bow strokes and eloquent legato. Yet he never loses the essential folk heart of the music, tracing a graceful line of his own making”

 “Contemplative, accomplished…an evening to relish for some time to come” 

“(The melodeon) is a curious kind of versatile, but Spiers knows exactly how to capture and manipulate its range, adding maximum colour and savour to the music”

Will Page

Cafe / Bar open from 18:00

Onstage from 20:00

Well known as the fiddle playing front man of Americana band, Noble Jacks, Will Page is a folk singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Sussex. Inspired from a young age after seeing Dave Swarbrick (Fairport Convention) perform live at his local village hall in Chiddingly (East Sussex), Will has continued Swarbs’ legacy of British folk fiddle playing into the modern era. Later discovering his melodic singing voice, Will began to combine singing with his fiddle playing (and other instruments) in a style reminiscent of artists such as Seth Lakeman and Jon Boden (Bellowhead).

As a young fan of the likes of The Waterboys and Levellers, Will experimented with alternative styles and sounds, and when he began writing his own songs, Noble Jacks was born to take these songs to the stage. With Noble Jacks, Will has toured relentlessly with sold out shows across the UK and beyond, with notable festival performances at Glastonbury, Isle of Wight Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival to name a few. In 2019 Noble Jacks performed at Americana Fest in both London and Nashville TN and Will was nominated instrumentalist of the year at the AMA (Americana Music Association) UK Awards in Jan 2020.

In April 2022, Noble Jacks exploded back onto the live scene with a brand new studio album, Last Of The Wild, which entered the Top 40 Official Americana Album chart on its first week of release. With three studio albums under his belt with Noble Jacks, Will is now also recording and performing as a solo artist, showcasing his more traditional folk-style writing and playing style.

Expect heartfelt vocals accompanied by guitar, harmonica, energetic fiddle and foot-stomping rhythms!

Mischief & Mystery in Moominvalley

Sun 4 December Sun 4 December

Sunday 4th December 2022

Performances at 11:00 & 14:00

Get Lost and Found presents

MISCHIEF AND MYSTERY IN MOOMINVALLEY

Discover the world of the Moomins where anything is possible. Be sure to pack your imagination and join us on an unforgettable journey to Moominvalley where everyone is welcome, nature thrives, and adventures are plentiful.

Based on the much-loved novels by Tove Jansson, this heart-warming show tells the story of a year in Moominvalley. Moomintroll wakes up in the middle of winter with a ‘something- wrong-feeling’. There’s no sign of his good friend Snufkin, or the note Snufkin left him. As winter turns to spring and Snufkin returns, the days lengthen into a lazy summer and ‘the sea brings them all the adventures they could wish for’.

British theatre group Get Lost and Found was commissioned by the Tove Jansson literary estate and Moomin Characters to create a new theatrical experience for children aged 3 – 7years. The result is a delightful show full of magical puppetry, an ingenious pop-up book set, original music, and interactive storytelling. Mischief and Mystery in Moominvalley was created in consultation with Sophia Jansson, Tove’s niece, and echoes the books’ themes: the love of nature, the value of friendship, the pain of separation and the acceptance of difference.

“The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she’s treated.”

Is it possible to transform a simple London flower girl into a Duchess?  Should Professor Henry Higgins even try?  After all his reputation as an eminent phonetician is at stake.

This lovingly reworked adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s     classic play takes a humorous yet poignant look at the hollowness of the British class system, gender politics and social mobility and explores the question … is it right to try and fundamentally change someone?

A tale of male manipulation and female self-discovery, this story is perhaps more relevant today than it was when first staged over a hundred years ago.

A humorous yet poignant look at the hollowness of the British class system
