1st Bothy guests of 2012

Gren Bartley & Tom Kitching are one of the brightest young acts on the folk scene today. Playing music from a remarkably broad range of sources, their new album ‘Boundary’ crosses genres with a healthy disdain for arbitrary pigeon-holing of styles and traditions. Some songs just need to be sung.  Having met at Loughborough University, through presenting a folk show on the campus radio, the duo grew out of a wish to perform the music they loved. Over time, Gren developed a distinctive passionate song writing style that manages to push boundaries, whilst staying respectful to the traditions.

Extracts from reviews:

"Bartley proves to be an accomplished songwriter, with a restful voice that lulls its way into the mind and heart."

"The instruments spark, with the combination of the bright fiddle and the acclaimed finger picking style of Bartley giving a lovely flow to the tunes"  Maverick Magazine.

They're at the Bothy this Sunday 8 January at the Park Golf Club, Park Rd West, Southport, PR9 0JS.  The venue serves Thwaites real ale.
