The Hearth's Music Programme for 2018 is sponsored by Story Homes


Friday 18th May, 7.30pm


Will Finn and Rosie Calvert are a dynamic up-and-coming duo from the heart of Newcastle. Playing traditional music with a contemporary flair, their shows are a veritable smorgasbord of folk fusion, utilising piano, steel pan, and close knit harmony singing to tremendous effect.

Will and Rosie are graduates of the Folk and Traditional Music BA at Newcastle and have  received accolades for their performances at Beverley Festival, Towersey Folk Festival, and The Sage Gateshead, and they have recently completed a very successful Kickstarter campaign in order to fund the recording of their debut album, Beneath This Place

“Will and Rosie provided us with a superb concert – two 45-minute sets of really good and varied songs, all of which were given interesting introductions. Rosie and Will complemented each other so well with their singing and playing. There was good interaction between performers and guests, and although none of the guests were very familiar with their music beforehand, they all really enjoyed the concert!”

Tickets will be £12.50 / £7.50 for under 19s and will be on sale in The Hearth Cafe from mid-April.

Fiddle player and singer Tom McConville is internationally renowned for his fiery, heart-stopping performances.  Winner of the BBC Folk Musician of the Year in 2009, he is truly the most original fiddle player in the UK.  Blending traditional music from his home town of Newcastle with Irish, American and Scottish influences, he creates a sound that has jazz, folk, bluegrass and classical influence.  His live performances are a roller coaster of musical delights; fast rhythmic dance tunes through beautiful slow airs and of course great singing - all presented with his inimitable sense of humour and style.

'One of the greatest violinists I've ever heard and by far the biggest influence in my music.  A true master.'  Seth Lakeman

Tickets on sale from mid-May from The Hearth Cafe
