AWARD WINNING MUSICIANS HEAD TO AWARD WINNING VENUE!
The Fleece Inn, Bretforton, plays host to two great concerts next week.
Multi-instrumentalist Benji Kirkpatrick, best known as a founder member of folk mega-band Bellowhead, 5-times winner of ‘Best Live Band’ at the Radio 2 Awards, played at the opening of Jimi Hendrix's House in London last weekend, and now brings his take on Hendrix's songs to the medieval barn at the Fleece.
Playing bouzouki, banjo and mandolin, Benji plays Hendrix like you've never heard before, stripping back the songs to their pure form. Benji is performing Sunday 21st Feb at 8pm. Tickets are £10 available from www.thefleeceinn.co.uk
Nigel, Landlord of the Fleece, says ' We are very exciting to host Benji at the Fleece. With Bellowhead he's used to playing to sell out audiences at Birmingham Symphony Hall and Shepherds Bush so it's a real coup to have him perform in our barn! '
More music follows on Tues 23 Feb, as Scottish band Breabach bring their thrilling and unique brand of contemporary folk music to the Fleece. Voted ‘Best Live Act’ & ’Best Folk Band‘ at the Scots Trad Music Awards and twice nominated ‘Best Band’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards; Scottish five-piece Breabach have earned international recognition on the world and roots music scene as one of the UK’s most dynamic and exciting bands.
Tickets are £12 and going fast for this unique opportunity to see bagpipes and Scottish step dance amongst the hops in the intimate Fleece barn!
The Fleece Inn is the Good Pub Guide's Country Pub of the Year 2016, and is one of 5 finalists in the Visit England Awards for Excellence - the winners will be announced on March 8th.
