Description

On the 9th February 2019 Keith, Helen and Nick are really pleased to invite Kevin Dempsey and Joe Broughton to our village hall in Plaitford.

Doors open 19:30 for 20:00 start

Since forming in 1999 this incredible duo have recorded four albums and toured extensively in over 20 countries round the world. Combining emotive songs, unrivalled instrumental capability and a spectacular high energy show, they never fail to create a spellbinding atmosphere.

The list of musicians they have played with is impressive...

Whippersnapper, Mary Black, Joss Stone, Dando Shaft, The Urban Folk Quartet, Fairport Convention, The Albion Band, Dave Swarbrick, Percy Sledge, Bellowhead....

but it can't prepare you for this unique partnership.

To pigeon hole their style of music would be to do them a disservice. They draw on Folk music from all corners of the world but their experience in Jazz, Soul, Classical, Pop and Rock music takes the result into original and uncharted territory.

What you'll notice at their concerts is not only the originality of what this acoustic duo plays, but also the simple fact that they do it so well. Kevin has a fantastic voice and is widely regarded as one of Europe's greatest acoustic guitar players, whilst Joe is simply unmatched in the world of fiddle pyrotechnics.

To top it all, the Dempsey Broughton show is playful and entertaining, you almost have to pinch yourself and remember to take it all in as they swoop from beautiful song to mind blowing tune via a stream of hilarious banter. Two hours with Kevin Dempsey and Joe Broughton can seem like 10 minutes.

“Superb musicianship, brilliant conception and execution…all you people who think you can jazz-up folk music - hear this and weep!”

- Flos Headford
