Odette Michell at The Canopy Theatre, Hungate Church, Beccles, Suffolk, NR34 9TL Sat 14th November 2020

Odette Michell

Odette Michell is an award-winning British folk singer-songwriter, guitarist and bouzouki player with a bold new take on the acoustic tradition and a voice capable of demonstrating the finer points of both folk and traditional song with genuine craftsmanship.

Things have been moving at something of a pace for Odette ever since she released her debut EP 'By Wayof Night' in 2018, gaining her first national and international radio plays on both BBC and Folk Radio stations.

In April 2019, Odette released her debut album ‘The Wildest Rose’ to widespread acclaim. It featured notable musical contributions from Phil Beer and Toby Shaer (Cara Dillon, Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys). The result is a compelling and highly impressive collection.

By the end of 2019, 'The Wildest Rose' had been included in numerous 'Best of 2019' album lists as well as being named 'Album Of The Year' on the Readifolk Radio Show.

ACOUSTIC “DOUBLE HEADER” at the Canopy Theatre, Beccles, Suffolk – Sat 31st October – 8 p.m.
Finn Collinson
Finn Collinson is a recorder player, singer and multi-instrumentalist from East Anglia. Heralded by The Recorder Magazine as a “folk recorder pioneer”, Finn has rapidly been gaining a reputation as one of the foremost exponents of the recorder on the English folk scene, performing at major folk clubs and festivals including Sidmouth Folk Festival, Broadstairs Folk Week and FolkEast, and was shortlisted for the BBC Young Folk Award in 2018.

Finn’s debut solo album, “Call To Mind” was released in September 2019 and has received widespread critical acclaim and extensive airplay in the UK and US. Featuring mainly original material, the album was described by Spiral Earth as “exceptionally well executed folk rock”.
Together with his band, Finn completed his first national headline tour in 2019, but this visit to the Canopy Theatre will be a solo show (with his extensive autumn plans for a band tour having been postponed to 2021 thanks to Covid 19).

Roswell at The Canopy Theatre, Beccles

Award-winning folk duo Roswell to continue a star studded autumn season in Beccles this December 18th (Please note change of date from 26th Sept)

 “A folk duo whose voices combine to create a seamless flow of rich, harmonic beauty' ~ Americana UK.
 "Zoë Wren was the guest at Hadleigh Folk Club earlier this year. She is a fantastic singer - well worth seeing while she's in the area.
(Simon Haines - Ed.)

Roswell are Zoё Wren and Jasmine Watkiss, two harmony-obsessed multi-instrumentalists, formed after an impromptu Cambridgeshire gig in 2018. They didn’t imagine that in less than 2 years they would have won Purbeck Rising, released their debut EP ‘Remedy’ (winner Fatea EP of the Year Award 2019) and sold out a headline show at the Green Note in London for the launch of their 2nd EP, "Come Home."
