Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar in Concert – Askrigg 21st June 2019
Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar are playing a concert in Askrigg Village Hall for the third time in four years! Following on from their fantastic concert at the Beer & Beef Festival last year they have confirmed their availability for the Summer Solstice. The proceeds from the concert will be split between the Askrigg Village Hall repairs fund and the Yorebridge Sports & Liesure Gym in Askrigg.
For anyone that has not seen Greg & Ciaran before I strongly recommend you come and see them. Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar joined forces in 2011. Combining Russell’s powerful vocals and driving guitar style with Algar’s All-Ireland winning fiddle playing, the duo have become one of the most sought after acts on the British folk scene. In 2013 the pair won the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award before going on to win the Horizon Award for best breakthrough act from the same source in 2014. In 2015, they were nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Best Duo category.
Not only are the very talented musicians they are also hugely entertaining with their ready wit and rapport with the audience and with each other!
Tickets are only £12.00 and are available from Sykes House, Askrigg; Yorebridge Sports Gym or from Andy & Kirsten Civil. You can also e-mail ticket requests to askriggfolkconcerts@btinternet.com; or by contacting Andy and Kirsten on 01969-650803.
It will be a fantastic evening – doors open at 7:30pm and there will be licenced bar with beer supplied by Askrigg’s own Yorkshire Dales Brewery. Please come along!
