Nancy Kerr and James Fagan were due to appear at the Bothy last year but had to cancel because Nancy was unwell. I've seen them several times, most recently at Warwick Folk Festival, and have always enjoyed their mix of traditional material and original songs, and the interplay of fiddle and guitar. They are the winners of the 2011 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Duo. Their latest CD, Twice Reflected Sun, was released in August last year. Their rearranged gig at the Bothy Folk Club is this Thursday 17th February at 8.00pm, where the CD will be on sale, with support from local duo Chris and Siobhan Nelson and myself.
“The purity of Kerr’s singing and some unerringly tasteful arrangements make for a subtly persuasive collection.” - review of the CD in MOJO.
Tickets available here or on the door. The Bothy meets at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS.
