Peacock Angell Duet at Weoley Hill Village Hall
Sat 9 April 2016, 19:30 – 22:30 BST
Gentle yet powerful describes the duet of Sid Peacock and Ruth Angell. They create music inspired by beautiful places, great poets, down and outs, new arrivals and feathered friends. Traditional and original material is performed with honesty, passion, great story telling and a high level of craftsmanship. Ruth Angell from Derbyshire and Sid Peacock from Northern Ireland marry the bright blue shores of County Down with the High Peaks and green fields of Derbyshire in this beautifully stripped down and personal collaboration. Peacock Angell is an intimate peek into the relationship of these two strong and independent musicians. Their music is very much a reflection on the struggles of daily life, relationships, happiness and the surprise of nature and circumstance and the beauty found in everything.
And now a rare chance to enjoy this marvellous music close to home in Weoley Hill Village Hall - not to be missed.
“…mellifluous, accomplished and quite beautiful…”
