Winter Festival - Friday Evening
Whalebone with Jean Atkin followed by Oli Wilson-Dickson & Dylan Fowler

Arts Alive present a Winter Festival of stories and songs – featuring artists from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Friday evening 7.00 to 9.30pm. English Folk duo Whalebone are joined by poet Jean Atkin to perform 'Understories'. ‘Understories’ is a brush with the new folklore of Shropshire. Here are urban, and rural, myths and tales just out of living memory. They are the common uncommon. Discover Shropshire’s last wolves and cloggers, its haunted roundabouts, pigs, railway lines and oak trees, not to mention the boy who burrowed under a church. ‘Understories' is a delightful, grounded and musical collection of poems that reminds us - through its brightly singing stories - how history is ravelled around memory, community and habitation: that ‘this is living, this is.’ Following 'Understories' will be two members of reknowned Welsh Folk group ALAW - Oli Wilson-Dickson and Dylan Fowler. “Welsh musicians don’t come more sensitive, accomplished and exploratory than this crew” fROOTS Dylan and Oli are two leading musicians who bring a wealth of experience to a shared passion - the traditional music of Wales. Whether unearthing rare gems or reimagining a well loved song, they treat their music with a deftness and sensitivity that is thoroughly absorbing. From stirring songs to driving jigs - they communicate their music with relaxed humour and a genuine affection that is truly infectious.
