The Odd Folk + Special Guests Foxes Fair Live in Penlee Park

Tickets: £10

“…The best folk band you’ve never heard of!” say The Guardian. A passionately ramshackle quintet, playing their own brand of “triumphant folk” while journeying up and down the country in a vintage Renault 4! Recently seen supporting young troubadour Johnny Flynn and folk legend Steve Tilston, and equally at home on the main stage of the corner of an old barn, the boys treat each ‘giggle’ with the same gusto and aim to make people smile and bounce!

Chico Chica

Led by composer Barbara Snow and lyricist Tom Hannah, this four-piece band takes myriad ingredients: tango, chanson, rai, rumba, jazz and cabaret and then stir fry them in the wok of the musicians’ collective subconscious to form an unforgettable evening of song and entertainment.
