Thanks Ewan!

Ewan McLennan at Moot Hall

Hey Ho! We had to change the name of our folk night, but we hope you like it! Mill Race Folk from now on will be known as Hey Ho! Folk. We’ll still be putting on extraordinary folk shows in gorgeous locations around Bedfordshire!

Thanks so much to everyone who came out to deepest darkest Elstow to see Ewan McLennan at the sold out spooky old Moot Hall last night. Wasn’t he incredible? Davypoo was magical as the support. Davy also made a film of Ewan performing Corrie Doon for the Hey Ho! podcast. We can’t wait to share it with you. 

We hope to see you all again soon. Marisa, Jack and Davy the hosts of Hey Ho! Folk, are on all the usual social media platforms and we’d love to hear from you x

MILL RACE FOLK TONIGHT – CANCELLED!

We are really sorry to say that we have had to cancel tonight’s concert due to the bad weather. Ewan was really gutted and we left it until this morning to make a decision as we hoped the thaw would happen a little sooner. Unfortunately the snow is particularly bad in Bristol and Ewan wouldn’t be able to make it to us in time.

We will be refunding all tickets bought through eventbrite for this event, and we hope to reschedule a gig for Ewan as soon as possible. If you have any questions please let us know. 

Apologies. We are really gutted.

 

Stay informed by signing up to our newsletter. Ewan and everyone at Mill Race Folk are gutted that tonight has been cancelled but we look forward to seeing you all soon x

The next Mill Race Folk is with Ewan McLennan.

Ewan’s music has depth of feeling & sincerity. Whether singing haunting traditional Scottish ballads or weaving the powerful stories that make up his own songs, Ewan’s unique, moving and earthy voice is always compelling. His guitar playing is outstanding and forms an essential part of his music. Ewan’s most recent project, entitled Breaking the Spell of Loneliness, was a collaborative tour and album with renowned author and journalist George Monbiot, seeking to use music and word to open up the issue of loneliness and community.

This will be Ewan’s second visit to the Mill. Food and drink will be available from the cafe on the night, provided by the Star Food Co.

When?: Saturday 3rd March 2018

Where?: Bromham Mill, Bedford, Beds

Tickets £10 Buy at www.eventbrite.com

The Foxglove Trio at Mill Race Folk

On Saturday 20th January 2018 Mill Race Folk presented The Foxglove Trio at Cafe at the Mil at Bromham Mill.

It was a great night with a full house. Thanks to everyone who came out to see the Ffion, Kathy and Patrick perform. They sounded fantastic and were so entertaining. Songs were sung beautifully in both English and Welsh and played with perfect precision. We were all left completely enchanted!

If you’ve never been to Mill Race Folk before, why not listen to what you have missed! Check out our new folk song podcast (now on iTunes). It’s all about traditional folk songs by the folk who perform them. We ask the musicians who come to Mill Race Folk to choose a traditional song to play, then we have a cosy little chat about it.

Mill Race Folk returns to Bromham Mill on Saturday 3rd March 2018 with Ewan McLennan. Tickets are available now from eventbrite.
