Saw two concerts on two consecutive nights. A replica of The Globe Theatre in London. Excellent music and a great venue for the community

Very good versatile 4 piece band. Varied styles & good musicianship. Especially enjoyed brilliant fiddler/dancer/pianist Kimberley. Loved everything apart from Jake the Peg (nooooooo, drop it guys) & the murdering of Danny Boy (one of the best tunes ever written). Would definitely go to hear...More
