Fine fiddling, flute and a big festive bash in Newbury

ACE Space is rounding off the year with a gig of seasonal music and its legendary Xmas Bash.

On Friday, December 8, The Wilderness Yet will be delivering festive songs with detailed arrangements and flawless close-knit harmony singing.

The trio combines the clear, charismatic vocals of former BBC Young Folk Award finalist Rosie Hodgson with the fine, sensitive fiddling of Rowan Piggott and the deft guitar and flute playing of Philippe Barnes.

Independently, they have earned audiences’ esteem as consummate musicians; together, they weave an eclectic tapestry of traditional and original songs and tunes; from a cappella three-part harmonies to luscious instrumental arrangements.

Of their album What Holds The World Together Folk Radio said: “Their new album shows them to be a band steeped in both the English and Irish folk traditions, but with a fresh, confident edge” and talked of “the sheer quality of their playing and singing”.

Friday, December 15, sees the hugely popular annual evening of mayhem that is the Xmas Bash.

Characterised by music, comedy, silly games, a quiz, a whisky (or possibly gin) rolling competition, pathetic decorations and not a few surprises, it is the main annual fundraiser for this volunteer-run registered charity and this year money raised will going towards adding a multi-access toilet.

This project is supported by The Good Exchange.

Tickets for The Wilderness Yet are £15 and for the Xmas Bash £10 are available direct by contacting events@acespace.org.uk or 07891 176940.
