An evening with Pennyless
Sunday 16th June, The Shambles at the Old Town Hall
Pennyless has a special sound that is distinctly English cooking up lively, quirky and downright mystical songs from folklore, medieval history and their own musical minds.
Multi-instrumental troubadours on fiddle, flute, guitar, bouzouki, whistle, mandolin and djembe, to name but a few, the instrumental arrangements are irresistibly fiery and melodically golden, with warm harmony vocals.
Working alongside the original material Pennyless throws in occasional roof-raisers from Irish, European and American roots tradition, and promises a distinctive performance of character, humour and variety.
