Sharron Kraus & Nancy Wallace
Sharron Kraus is a singer of folk songs, a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose solo work and collaborations offer a dark and subversive take on traditional music.
As well as drawing on the folk traditions of England and Appalachia, her music is influenced by gothic literature, surrealism, myth and magick.
Her songs tell intricate tales of rootless souls, dark secrets and earthly joys, the lyrics plucked as sonorously as her acoustic guitar.
As well as her solo work, Sharron has recorded an album of traditional songs – ‘Leaves From Off The Tree’ – with Meg Baird and Helena Espvall of Espers, written an album of songs to celebrate the seasons of the year – ‘Right Wantonly A-Mumming’ – which was recorded with some of England’s finest traditional folk singers including Jon Boden, Fay Hield and Ian Giles – and also recorded and performed with the duos Rusalnaia and Tau Emerald (with Gillian Chadwick and Tara Burke, respectively).
Nancy Wallace is a singer and musician hailing from Suffolk and London, currently residing in Montreal, Canada.
She came to notice singing with the Memory Band and later as part of the cult alt-folk collective The Owl Service, but has in recent years been ploughing her own furrow.
A guitarist and concertina player, Nancy’s repertoire spans traditional material, her own compositions and the odd unexpected cover version.
Live, she creates an atmosphere and intimacy with her audience which is not to be missed.

Bodmin Folk Club
Bodmin Folk Club
In 1967, a small group of enthusiasts who met weekly to sing in the Masons Arms decided to start a club to attract traditional performers to Cornwall. The first recorded club night of the Bodmin Traditional Folk Club was on 31st May 1968 in an upper room at The Barley Sheaf.
Since then, the club has met almost every single Friday night, welcoming a range of singers, musicians and occasional dancers from Britain and beyond at both guest nights and open houses.
Our new home is at St Petroc's Centre, opposite St Petroc's church. The Centre is not Licensed buy you're welcome to Bring Your Own ( Alcohol & Glasses! ). We've got Tea & Coffee, Soft drinks.
