The concerts have had to stop for now, but we've still been beavering away behind the scenes to bring you something fresh, different and exciting! We're thrilled to announce that this Friday will see the start of a new online weekly series: "An hour or so with..."

Each week, at 8.00pm on our FACEBOOK page, we'll be joined by a different guest for an hour or so. The focus of these events will be on chat, although each guest will play a few live songs too. You'll be invited to ask questions in the comments, so it will be very interactive... the more people watch and engage, the better it will be for everyone. The events are free, although there is a PayPal donations box, with 100 per cent of the donations going direct to the guest. You can find that HERE.

Our first guest, this Friday (3rd April) will be our Patron, JIM MORAY. Jim is amongst England’s finest interpreters of traditional song. His relentlessly innovative recordings can truly be said to have changed the sound of folk music since the early 2000s, and he has won fans and admirers far outside of the folk scene without ever betraying his traditional roots. A five-time BBC Folk Award winner, his songs have been featured in a season finale of Grey’s Anatomy, he has appeared on-screen singing a specially composed song for Dr Who spin-off Class as aliens attack the earth, and he has presented documentaries on traditional music for BBC Radio 3.

We'll be announcing next week's guest at the end of each episode, so do stay tuned until the very end, and get your questions ready in the meantime. You can submit questions in advance by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you'd rather. And make sure that you've "liked" our Facebook page for reminders.

We've tried to do something a bit different, so we hope you'll want to put 8.00pm every Friday for the next few weeks in your diaries now. We have some great guests lined up! See you then (well, we won't, but you'll see us!).
