Country Meets Folk: The Haley Sisters with Iain and Joolz

Masham Town Hall, Little Market Place, Masham

The Haley Sisters, Iain Glover & Joolz Cavell have been playing their wonderful “Country Meets Folk” evenings for almost a decade now, and we are delighted to welcome them back to the Town Hall. Expect a stunning evening of, well, country and folk, with innovative collaboration, wonderful musicianship, and a wonderful choice of songs.

The Haley Sisters – Jo-Ann and Becky from Harden near Bingley, along with award-winning songwriter, slide guitar and flat picker Brian – first appeared professionally back in 1989. Over a successful singing career they have played Americana, country, folk, blues… any song from any genre that feels good gets their magical blend of vocal harmonies and top-notch musicianship.

Iain Glover and Joolz Cavell first met at a local folk club in 2007 and it was “music at first sight”. Iain, a veteran of 40 years on the folk scene affectionately known as “the miserable mandolin player”, added his mandolin to Joolz’s contemporary folk style. She, in turn, added percussion to his more traditional range, and a partnership was born out of the sheer enjoyment of folk music. Ian is also a Town Hall veteran having played here in the 1970s with The Crofters.

Doors 7pm for a prompt start at 7.30pm.

Tickets £12, at Masham Community Office, 01765-680200.
