An evening with one of the most prolific figures on the English folk scene.

John Kirkpatrick presents a heart­-warming look at the timeless rituals and folklore of midwinter England. Mysterious and magical songs of wassailing, wren­hunting, stirring the fire and incessant feasting come dressed up in a glittering finery of toe­tapping tunes and cracking choruses.

With a smattering of hilarious original songs and a sprinkling of carols both familiar and unfamiliar, all are stirred up with John’s usual panache and supported by his scintillating skill on squeezeboxes, creating the perfect recipe for a rattling good sing, guaranteed to keep the spirits cheery and the cold at bay.

A master of the melodeon, button accordion and anglo concertina, John also has an enviable reputation as a fine singer and interpreter of English folk music.
