Prepare for a night of folk-based story telling with Jim Ghedi and Yakka Doon on Sunday 9th October at The Cumberland Arms.

Originally from South Yorkshire, Jim Ghedi not only uses traditional local folk but pushes boundaries to explore experimental performances, with unique compositions that don’t sit the way you would expect. The violins in recent single What Will Become of England have an electric energy, blurring the lines of acoustic sounds until they take on a new power entirely. The narrative of folk is never lost, it’s carried not only through his words but with a voice that holds its strength in lower notes. Jim Ghedi’s performance will showcase the work of his most recent album In The Furrows Of Common Place.

Yakka Doon will beautifully contrast Jim Ghedi by sharing her own unique brand of quiet and subtle folk. Yakka Doon’s reserved style brings focus back to the elements that are traditionally loved about folk music; it’s storytelling full of every emotion a person can feel, but in this case especially the bittersweet combination of hope and loss.
