Acclaimed folk duo Broom Bezzums to perform in Carperby

Broom Bezzums will appear in Carperby with Katie Doherty.

Germany’s favourite English folk duo will play at Carperby Village Institute next month.

Broom Bezzums is a unique, powerful live acoustic duo featuring the talents of Andrew Cadie and Mark Bloomer.

It will be three years since they were last in the dale when a full house enjoyed a fabulous evening.

Since then the duo’s new album No Smaller Than The World has gained rave reviews and been nominated as one of the folk albums of 2016 in the UK.

Broom Bezzums have twice won the folk category at the German Rock and Pop Prize and their latest album won the prestigious German Record Critics’ Award.

They are regulars on TV and radio and have been heavily featured in the music press and lauded in broadsheets.

Organiser Steve Sheldon said: “Their striking stage presence and Anglo–Celtic influenced material is gathering new fans wherever they go.

“Fiddle, guitar, mandocello, Northumbrian small pipes and foot drum are all deployed to give a big, rich sound to their own self-penned songs and traditional tunes.

“For this concert they will be joined again by Katie Doherty, an extremely well respected and award-winning singer and songwriter from the North East.”

Together, they will provide a memorable evening and all proceeds will go to Carperby Playing Fields Association.

Tickets are £13 in advance or £15 on the door.
