Autumn and Winter concerts
We are so pleased and proud to have two of our favourite musicians returning to Tuppenny Barn later this year.
As the traditional summer festival break comes to an end in September, we pack away our rucksacks and camping gear and return indoors for three concerts to take us to the end of another year of top quality music.
Our Autumn programme starts with Miranda Sykes who first played at the Barn in January 2017 with top mandolin player Rex Preston.
Next to take centre stage will be Phillip Henry who entertained us in November 2016 with Hannah Martin. The duo now perform as Edgelarks.
And finally for 2018, Jackie Oates a singer and fiddle player at the forefront of the new English folk revival brings her band to the Barn in November.

Saturday 29th September
Miranda Sykes, the acclaimed singer and bassist with Show of Hands returns to her roots for her second appearance at the Barn. Her career spans 20 years, she has played with many of the top folk singers and musicians; but this time she’s on her own with one bass and one guitar.
Her ‘Borrowed Places’ solo tour interprets the soul of the land and takes her audience on a journey that resonates with everyone, wherever we live. A spine-tingling evening you won’t want to miss.
A multi-instrumentalist and figurehead for English slide guitar, Phillip brings his solo tour to the Barn to celebrate the release of his long awaited solo album, ’True North’. Commemorating ten years since his journey to Kolkata to study under the great slide guitarist Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya, 'True North’ charts a life spent travelling the globe, collecting tunes, stories, and instruments.
From music written whilst kangaroo spotting in Australia, to tunes learnt from a Canadian maestro on First Nations reservation land in Canada; songs of the road; and pieces written by musician friends from Kent to Kolkata ; the album's diversity is matched only by the virtuosity of Henry's playing. One musician, one instrument, is the guiding principle; yet instruments range from mellow Weissenborn depths to spectacular Dobro flourishes, to the sounds of the rare Indian Chatturangui (a 22 string guitar from the sub-continent). Here is a fusion of global styles deeply infused with Henry's British folk roots, and brought together with a considered beauty all his own.
Saturday 17th November
A name synonymous with the reinvigoration of English folk, Jackie is an inventive and enthralling artist. Her talent has resulted in several BBC Folk Awards and the release of six acclaimed solo albums.
Her mellifluous voice, plaintive fiddle and tantalising approach to traditional songs has gained her national recognition in a career that’s seen her perform as a member of the nascent Unthanks, collaborate with Alasdair Roberts and Belinda O’Hooley, as well as her solo albums. She has also been immortalised as a Lush cosmetic, featured on Lauren Laverne’s 6 Music show and appeared in Midsomer Murders.
