The George Butterworth Story

Diss Corn Hall will be showing this new documentary film about George Butterworth, the English composer, Morris dancer and folk song collector who was killed in 1916 at Pozières, France during the Battle of the Somme aged just 31. In the chaos of war Butterworth was buried where he fell and his remains were never subsequently identified.

ALL MY LIFE'S BURIED HERE tells the story of George Butterworth's life and music from his earliest childhood to his final hours in the violent confusion of the trenches.

The film will be shown on Wednesday 27th February 2019 at 10.30am and at 7.30pm.  Following each performance there will be a Q & A session with the director Stewart Hajdukiewicz

McGoldrick, Doyle & McCusker

Folk music trio Mike McGoldrick, John Doyle and John McCusker head to Bury St Edmunds on 28th February for a night of beautifully crafted music.

Having shared stages and recording studios with the likes of Bob Dylan, Mark Knopfler, Paul Weller and Joan Baez, the trio are described as the masters of flute, fiddle, song and guitar.


John Doyle, John McCusker and Mike McGoldrick first crossed paths as teenagers, and although they'd bumped into each other over the years, all three really hit it off when they started playing as part of the BBC's annual Transatlantic Sessions in 2007. “That felt like it was a real coming together of the three of us,” McCusker says. “It's always been really natural to play together, and as pals, it always feels really natural to hang out. That's how the idea of us doing this as a trio came about: after The Transatlantic Sessions, we didn't want the fun and the music to stop. So we said, 'Well, why don't we just keep going?'” And so they did. Doyle, McCusker and McGoldrick have performed as a trio since 2009. They released a live album in 2009 and continue to tour together regularly.
