Broadside Ballads

— Bristol Folk House
Colston Hall presents at Bristol Folk House
time:20:00
price: See event details

Information:

Transporting us to a rare time in Britain’s history, three of the UK’s most innovative, award-winning folk artists reinvent a collection of broadsides – daily song sheets sold for pence. Lisa Knapp, Marry Waterson and Nathaniel Mann lead a five-piece band who have scoured the collection at the Bodleian Libraries and beyond to bring the tradition to a new generation.

Successful in their own individual careers, this collaboration is a sparkling rarity that gets back brings the heart of old fashioned folk into the modern-day.

This is not nostalgia but rather, a look at the music that made us.
