Filkin’s Drift | Contemporary Folk Duo

Filkin’s Drift | Contemporary Folk Duo

Age range: 14+

See one of the UK’s fastest rising folk groups in an intimate setting.

Filkin’s Drift combine the traditional and the contemporary through their blend of fiddle, guitar, and close vocal harmonies. They weave together folklore from their homes, Wales and Gloucestershire, in performances that are “utterly mesmerising” (Bristol 24/7). Set-up around a single microphone, Seth and Chris entertain audiences with original tunes, traditional songs, and stories of life as a musician.

The pair have toured across the British Isles and Europe. Performances include Glastonbury Festival, and the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony live on BBC1

“Fantastic fiddle-driven energy” - BBC Radio Glos.
“Beautifully varied timbres, real virtuosity” - British & International Federation of Festivals

Much Ado about Jazz with Chris Gumley and Al Gurr at Upton Magna VH last night - absolutely brilliant night. Such fantastically talented musicians!

Excellent venue, interesting choice of films, good choice of refreshments and value for money. Very happy, friendly event. We look forward to coming to Colwall.

I am so pleased I was able to see the film, as is was intended on the big screen. Much better than watching it at home on the television.

Audience feedback - Lingen Village Hall

Most films we've seen are enjoyable, well-chosen for the audience and very entertaining at times. Very well run by the group, especially the refreshments at intermission.

An exciting community resource in this isolated village. 'A taste of culture'.

This venue at Tasley is extremely well organised, films are well varied for a mixed audience.

The organisers were very welcoming and offered drinks and cake as everyone arrived. The film (Ali & Ava) was different and gave an insight to other peoples lives. This is why I go to Flicks in the Sticks : to see other films rather than Box Office blockbusters and get a glimpse into other cultures around the world.
