We’re playing at The Offline Festival this Saturday at Hounslow Hall Estate, Buckinghamshire. Catch us singing unamplified around a campfire near the ‘Power Forum’ venue at around 22:00.
This unique festival is about community with talks and seminars curated for community businesses, social enterprises, community projects & socially responsible corporate partners. There will be opportunities for friends and family to experience hands-on learning, business skill-building, insightful discussions, epic stories, and personal growth sessions. Wow. What a programme! I mean, this festival promises a lot! We’re intrigued. Can’t wait to explore and learn something new.
We were invited by The Nest Collective to play. They’ve curated all the live music for the festival this year.

Mill Race Folk has returned to Bromham Mill! Marisa Jack and Davy are ready to go with another excellent selection of contemporary folk and traditional music in the beautiful, intimate setting of Bedford’s 18th century water mill. The the cafe once again providing delicious food and drink.
To start our new season, The Askew Sisters will be performing! “From dark ballads to uplifting dance tunes, they play with driving energy and the unity of two people who have played together all their lives.
The sisters use fiddle, melodeon and concertina to breathtaking effect, creating cinematic arrangements that get to the very heart of each song. These create a perfect setting for Hazel’s striking voice, which won her Best Female Singer at the Spiral Earth Awards 2011.
Emily and Hazel’s latest album, In the Air or the Earth, was released by RootBeat Records, to widespread critical acclaim, including the Spiral Earth Award for Best Traditional Album 2015.”
Tickets are only £10 and are available from eventbrite or pop into the Mill at the weekend and buy a ticket from Rachel at the cafe x
