Folkish Festival with Ghost School, The Bromleys, Johnny Powell & the Seasonal Beasts, The Landlubbers

More to be announced.
Outside bar too.
The Landlubbers are a local group dabbling in the art of sea shanty singing, a confusing mix considering the lack of any coastline in the Halifax area.

Formed in 2016, they have started to build a set which includes traditional chanty combined with their own self penned songs about the local area, with some names that will be familiar to any Haligonian.

They say they have created their own musical genre 'Industrial Chant' so come along and give them a listen, but be prepared to join in!

4pm
Johnny Powell and the Seasonal Beasts' are a mindful and alternative modern folk band from Hebden Bridge. Their delicate debut 2017 EP ‘Five Past Lives’ was hailed as ‘brilliantly eccentric’ by Piccadilly Records and BBC Introducing said of it ‘incredible songwriting’ and ’We have all fallen in love with it in the studio’. They have a new album ready for release in April 2018 that denounces plastic and is to be released as a handmade and handbound book. 'Fans of artists in the vein of Smog, Neutral Milk Hotel & Bon Iver will no doubt receive it well' (Leeds Music Scene).

5pm
The Bromleys
Calderdale's answer to The Watersons...featuring the rich vocal talents of John, James and Jenny Bromley. Expect to hear some classic folk songs as well as their own material.

6pm
Ghost School use acoustic instruments and voices to both explore the folk traditions of the British Isles and
showcase the original songs of singer, guitarist and mandolinist Andy Greaves. Weaving songs and stories from the past with contemporary original compositions, Ghost School create a rich musical tapestry that comes to life in their dynamic live performances.
Les Gillon (guitar/vocal) and Jen Trott (fiddle/ vocal) complete the line-up for this performance.
