We can not tell you how honoured we are to present a night with Nic Jones and his son Joe.

Nic Jones is a British folk singer and guitarist. Amongst the most acclaimed artists to emerge from the British Folk Revival, his sensibility and approach to the arrangement of traditional folk songs has been a major influence on the folk scene since the early 1970ís.

His original percussive style is still imitated by many and as a singer he had few peers. Despite the accident that ended his career, nearly 30 years on he remains one of the most influential and respected performers, his reputation and available recordings continuing to attract an audience too young to have seen him perform. You can find out more in Nicís biography and gallery.

In February 2007 at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Nic was presented with the Good Tradition Award in recognition of his exceptional contribution to traditional music and culture.

In September 2011 Nic was awarded the EFDSS Gold Badge, and was presented with it by President, Shirley Collins, at the concert at Cecil Sharp House on 22nd September 2012.

2012 saw Nic unexpectedly return to performing at a handful of festivals; Warwick, Cambridge, Towersey and Cornwall, accompanied by Joseph Jones and Belinda O'Hooley.

2013 Nic received the BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year award and, following the success of his performances with the Trio, appeared at 6 festivals during the year.

Having been followed throughout the year by film producer, Michael Proudfoot, the resulting documentary "The Enigma of Nic Jones" was be screened on 27th September'13 on BBC Four.

The Long Hill Ramblers:
Laura Hockenhull's voice must have been the best-kept secret in folk music over the last few years. Those in the know, including some of the most respected names in the business, have admired her work for the purity of her voice, and the strength of her interpretations. Now the secret is out.

Tab Hunter on guitar, Ben Paley on fiddle and Dan on banjo and mandolin have each made international reputations for themselves as instrumentalists in all sorts of traditional music, in more bands than we can begin to list.
