Banbury Folk Club will be hosting its last gig before this year’s Banbury Folk festival at the Mill Arts Centre tonight (Wednesday).
The club will be hosting Kim Lowings & The Greenwood, a collective of musicians from Stourbridge in the West Midlands.
Kim is a folk singer & songwriter who works with contemporary and traditional folk song to weave tales of enchantment & rebellion.
She played in the Emerging Young Performers Concert at Banbury Folk Festival to great acclaim and then supported Red Shoes in their album launch last November when the club moved to Drayton Leisure Golf Centre because of flooding at the Mill.
Kim is fast growing in popularity on the festival circuit with appearances at Leamington Peace Festival, Moseley Folk Festival and Worcester Music Festival.
Kim and her band will be supported by Ash Centi. Ash played at the club’s Open Stage night last March and is a singer songwriter from Buckingham.
Ash performs original songs with a subtle voice and fingerpicked and strummed guitar.
His style is influenced by songwriting artists from the 60s such as Phil Ochs and Paul Simon.
The show begins at 8.30pm. Admission is £7 (Concessions £6). For details go to www.banburyfolkclub.co.uk
