Event description

Description

Come and listen to and enjoy the music by talented musicians Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll.

Nick and Becki will take you on a musical and historical tour, to discover the musical connections between folk music from Bideford and North Devon and folk music in Newfoundland.

The talk and music will reflect the important and often unknown historical roots and connections that existed between these 2 regions in the 17th Century and beyond.

This event is aimed at adults and older children who are interested in music and history. A limited number of seats can also be reserved at Bideford library - ask a member of staff to add your name to the list to secure your seat.

Donation of £2 per person will be collected at the door on the day.


This event is part of Bideford Bay Creatives' 'Way of the Wharves' project, a one year community project researching and celebrating historical and contemporary activities and life on the Wharves at East the Water, Barnstaple Street,Torrington St and area.
