Crossing the Borderline

Hope they’ll let us in

We are off to Lancashire for a return visit to Ramsbottom Folk Club on Wednesday 17 August.
It’s a double bill with Skinner and T’Witch

More information and a ticket link here

We enjoyed playing there last year and they must have liked us so it should be a good night. There might be a few Break a Leg! diehard travelling fans there.


Crookes Folk Club, 4th August

Break a Leg! will be at the Princess Royal, Slinn Street, in Crookes where the acoustics are great, the floor singers excellent and the audience full of spontaneous warmth. What more could you ask?

Oh yes, a comfortable seat. On a busy night these are at a bit of a premium so if you want a backrest better come early. Show starts at 8:30, doors open 8pm or a bit earlier. Young people and yoga teachers come when you are ready.

First of the Summer Wine?

It’s a great event, a full weekend of live music and most of it free. We’ll be playing twice starting at 11:30 pm on Friday 6th May in The Nook, and on Saturday at 5:30pm in the Gonzo Bar.

The weather looks like being lovely, warm at last, so if you want a perfect way to spend a day, an evening or the whole weekend…

Back at Sharrow Folk Festival on Saturday 16 April

Sharrow Nov 2014
The audience last time we played at Sharrow Folk Festival, lovely people and quite a few proper musicians, including Jimi of course.

It will be another night of chaotic musical fun at Hagglers Corner. Last year’s folk music fundraising event for the annual Sharrow Festival was such a success so of course they are doing it all over again.

Only £5 for an afternoon and evening of entertainment, we’ll be playing at 10pm on the downstairs stage.

Off to West Yorkshire – 15 March in Morley

People of Morley who remember brave animals. Maybe some of them will be there next Tuesday?

Morley Folk Club have asked us to play as their featured guests on 15th March. Morley people do look like a smart bunch, so we are polishing up some songs for them. There will be plenty of floor spots available so any singers or players who would like to come and join the fun will be very welcome.

Break a Leg at the Cheshire Cheese, 3 March

We seem to be having a bit of a rest from our busy schedule but we’ll be back performing in March, starting with a return to the Cheshire Cheese in Hope. A really relaxed place with a friendly atmosphere so we’ll be looking forward to it. Hope to see some old friends there.

January has been good. We loaded up the mighty tour bus, paid the road crew their back wages and headed off for an epic two day tour across the heart of ‘proper’ South Yorkshire. On Friday 8th we were at the Roots Music Club in Doncaster supporting Rod Clements of Lindisfarne and on Saturday 9th we topped the bill at Raising the Rafters Folk Club in Wath-upon-Dearne.

Very different venues but we enjoyed both and met some good people, including James Haigh, an impressive young performer who has yet to take his GCSEs. We’ve invited him to come to Sheffield to play at the Nether Edge Folk Club in May.

Meanwhile we are working on some new songs and thinking about new places to sing in the spring. We might even start something more regular in Sheffield so watch this space.
