The Foxglove Trio at Mill Race Folk

Marisa Jack and Davy present The Mill Race Folk Podcast. It’s all about traditional folk songs by the people who perform them.

We spoke to Ffion, Kathy amd Patrick from The Foxglove Trio when they played at Mill Race Folk in Bromham Mill on 20th January 2018. They performed their version of ‘William’ for the podcast. It’s a Welsh language folk song which features on their latest album, ‘Distant Havens’. This song was discovered by Ffion whilst listening to an archive recording of Bertie Stephens at the National History Museum at St Fagans, near Cardiff.

For more on Welsh folk songs, why not check out Ffion’s blog, Caneuon Gwerin

Bertie Stephens is on discogs here (Wren Records). There is a short article about him online at The National Museum of Wales

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.
