Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp at Bromham Mill

Mill Race Folk brings an excellent selection of contemporary folk and traditional music to the beautiful, intimate setting of Bromham Mill, Bedfordshire. Live music starts at 8pm with an interval for DINNER, with the cafe once again providing delicious food and drink.

 

On Saturday 18th November, Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp return to Mill Race Folk with their debut album, The Poacher’s Fate.

Laura and Ted take a no-nonsense approach to traditional English folk song, taking their cues from revival singers such as Frankie Armstrong, Peter Bellamy and the Watersons and placing an emphasis on strong vocals, tight harmonies and unfussy arrangements.
Their repertoire is drawn from and inspired by their homes in the North West and East Anglia, expect to hear a distinctive range of songs sung with passion.

Tickets are only £10 and available to buy now from eventbrite

 “If anyone was to ask you what English folksong sounds like, simply playing them any track on this record would answer the question.” Folk Radio UK

“There’s no artifice, no straining for clever effects at all. It’s just damn good songs sung beautifully.” Mike Harding, The Mike Harding Folk Show

“Good straight ahead, proper job folk duo like what they made in the 1970s – sound and look like an escapee from Trailer. No silly folkist mannerisms, and not twee… worth investigating.” Ian Anderson
