The Folk Weekend team are working hard in preparation for Folk Weekend Oxford 2022. Details will be here very soon! But in the meantime we have other events for you to enjoy
The Boot Band: Wilcote Art Studios (Finstock)
7.30pm, 1st October 2021
Presented in association with Finstock Unplugged and Wilcote Art Studios, this boutique event presents the ever popular Stonesfield trio, fresh from their triumphant set at The Wilderness Festival in August, in an intimate acoustic setting. With support from The Hex Collective.
Only 35 tickets available, £12. Buy here.
The Boot Band are Nick Hooper (guitar, vocals), Judith Hooper (violin, vocals), and Susanna Starling (double bass, vocals). They have been delighting audiences with their eclectic repertoire of their own tunes, traditional folk material, and covers. This is a rare opportunity to catch them in an intimate setting.
The Hex Collective are Jim Driscoll (guitar, vocals) and Josie Webber (cello, vocals). They play mostly original material, including their own settings of words collected by Alfred Williams in this area 100 years ago.
Finstock Unplugged is a friendly sing-around club that meets on the last Monday of every month at Wilcote Art Studios (4 Hunt's Copse, Wilcote Riding OX7 3DX). Feel free to come along and sing a song or two, or just to listen.
If you wish to enjoy a drink at the gig, please bring your own bottle.
