This virtuoso duo create a unique sound that flows from the connection between British and American folk, bursting with all the humour, heartbreak and excitement of these genres. James Hickman's emotive vocals, driving guitar and lively English wit are complemented by Dan Cassidy's virtuosic fiddling, bone-dry irony and American drawl. Dan Cassidy (brother of the late Eva Cassidy) grew up in Maryland, but is now based in Iceland. James Hickman grew up in Shropshire on a diet of folk and bluegrass, and now tours internationally with Uiscedwr. Previous winners of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, expect a dynamic and unforgettable transatlantic journey from these rising stars.

Hat Fitz is a veteran wild man of the blues scene in Australia. Cara draws on her soul background, and although blessed with a sensational voice she was not content to be labelled as ‘just a singer’.

Another return visit to the Mill from this wonderful trio. Their music is a life-enhancing blend of swing, boogie woogie, jive and blues in the New Orleans tradition. Championed by BBC Radio 2’s Paul Jones, the band had us dancing in the aisles on previous visits. “Vocalist Debbie Jones is as sultry as a night downtown, Justin Randall’s piano boogies like there’s no tomorrow... Glorious”(The Mail).

Spooky Men's Chorale with special guests the Glorious Chorus
Civic Hall, High Street, Totnes TQ9 5SF
Tickets £22.00 and £18.00 concessions Available from website
The manchoir emerged blinking-eyed from the Blue Mountains of New South Wales 15 years ago and, armed with no more than their impressively cavernous vocal chords, a nice line in deadpan, improbable facial hair and an ill-matched set of hats, have been gleefully wooing audiences throughout Australia, NZ and the UK ever since. Brandishing a shiny brand new CD Welcome to The Second Half, the magnificent, craggy ensemblage of heavenly singing male bodies return to the UK in 2019, ever more comfortable with their whimsical humour and musical breadth – a winning spectrum of Georgian songs, pindrop-beautiful ballads, highly inappropriate covers and immaculate man anthems. Acclaimed a capella choir Glorious Chorus will be supporting.
