Kicking things off is the much anticipated rescheduled Steve Tilston and Jez Lowe. Don’t miss two of the UK Acoustic/Folk scene’s finest songwriters join forces for a series of concerts filled with songs and music, chat and banter and intimate insights into their approach to their craft for a very special evening of music.
