Green & Matthews
“Sophie and Chris have a gift for choosing great tunes and songs from our rich and complex English folk tradition and performing them with skill and imagination.”
Paul James (Blowzabella)
Chris Green and Sophie Matthews play English traditional songs and tunes in a thoroughly 21st-century kick-ass style.
Using a beguiling blend of ancient instruments such as cittern, English border bagpipes and shawm as well as modern folk instruments such as guitar, flute and piano accordion, Chris and Sophie breathe new life into material from hundreds of years ago, making it fresh, relevant and accessible for a modern audience.
Doors open at 8.00pm. Show starts at 8.30pm.

Penzance Folk Club
Started at the Admiral Benbow pub in Penzance in early 2008 by Alan & Linda Collins, we continue to run it with welcome help from a number of members and performers.
The club runs alternate Wednesdays from 8.30pm; most evenings are "round the room" sessions where everyone has an opportunity to sing, play a tune or tell a story (there is no obligation to perform and audience are equally welcome).
As one might expect, there is an emphasis on Cornish tunes, and most of the tunes come with an invitation to all musicians to join in. When the tune is linked to a Cornish dance, it is not unusual for a few members to take to the (limited) floor space!
Round the room sessions are free entry, but we always run a raffle which raises funds to subsidise our guest nights.
