Roswell at The Canopy Theatre, Beccles

Award-winning folk duo Roswell to continue a star studded autumn season in Beccles this December 18th 

 “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."

Morning Tide, Tony Hall, from Threescore

Making WavesWe have been sent a recording of the song Morning Tide which was written by Norfolk melodeon
maestro Tony Hall and recorded by the band Threescore on their most recent CD.

The song was written in the context of the Falklands War (1982) so is appropriate at this time of
annual remembrance.

Finn Collinson & Zoe Wren at The Canopy

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).
