With Special Guests Janker Stone and Tim McDermott
After a successful 2015, culminating in an appearance at The Apex Theatre, Bury St Edmonds, opening for acclaimed folk star Nancy Kerr, and a busy start of 2016, playing folk clubs and festivals UK-wide; High Peak-based quartet Raintown Seers bring their unique musical performance back to Glossop.
Raintown Seers take a set of original and contemporary folk songs, with influences from both sides of the Atlantic, and link them together through the stories behind them. Several themes are included with a particular emphasis on the history and geography of the High Peak.
The band utilise a variety of musical instruments in the arrangements, including acoustic guitar, upright bass, banjo, mandolin, melodeon, and concertina; this plus vocal harmonies from the band’s two singers results in a show rich in musical colours and textures.
