Blackdowns Early Music Projects

All Saints' Church, Culmstock

7.30pm - 9.00pm

The joyful combination of English fiddle partnership Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll welcomes you into their family from the first note. This is a masterclass in the art and mystery of connection; two fiddles and two voices working in confidence and synergy to create something far greater than the sum of its parts. Nick and Becki’s refined arrangements feature intricate subtleties that build to driving rhythms, stunning harmonies and dramatic crescendos. These compositions are infused with shared stories, songs and tunes from England’s west country and beyond – and it can all start from just one simple riff. Their new album ‘Cold Light’ weaves together ancient melodies, traditional dance tunes and newly-written songs. This is the very essence of folk music; allowing the past to inspire the future.
