Traditional English Christmas songs, music and lighthearted fun.
Simon Nicol (Fairport Convention), Kellie While (The Albion Band) and Simon Care (Edward II) join Ashley Hutchings (founder of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and The Albion Band) for an evening of traditional English Christmas music, song and celebratory readings – a guided tour through the Christmas customs of Britain.
Kellie While takes time out from working with her mum, Chris While, for which both the UK press and public alike have praised her. Folk enthusiasts will know Kellie from her work with The Albion Band. She received personal praise from Ron Sexsmith for her beautiful version of his song Riverbed on her album Tenacious, which put her on the map as one this country’s finest voices.
Simon Care is currently working with Edward II and has always had a passion for traditional English dance and song. Simon also works with Banter, Tickled Pink and the Morris On Band.
Simon Nicol, founder member of Fairport Convention, finishes the line up to make this a truly festive treat. He is regarded as one of the finest acoustic guitarists in the world, and his voice is pretty special too!
The Albion Christmas Band‘s show is the perfect way to start your festivities. This year will see a material chosen by the audience, it promises to be a fantastic set drawing on material from the band’s extensive back catalogue.
