Fundraising Folk – An evening with Robin Fishwick and Friends


Friday 12 July, 19:30 – 22.30
Heart, Headingley

Robin Fishwick (bandcamp),  is a local singer, musician and composer, playing frequently at folk and open mike sessions in the city. His songs, varying from the wry to the contemplative, often reflect his Quaker values.

He plays a range of woodwind including renaissance instruments, recorders and xaphoon and his stringed instrument of choice is the timple of the Canary Islands.

Tonight he’ll be playing with local musicians Rob Langley (aka Cheb Ghobbi) on the bass and Dibbs Dibblethwaite on keyboards and woodwind.

The Occasionals

Also performing are Amyas/Henry “two names are cool” Merivale and Thomas Brouwen (he’s a tall man with a deep voice and when he’s not plucking at a double bass he can be found wielding the ukulele).

Rory Scammell
Last but not least we have Leeds’ own Hurdy-Gurdy Man performing on one of the most bizarre instruments in folk music! Visit his MySpace

All proceeds will go to Positive Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers; supporting destitute refugees and asylum seekers in Leeds since 2003.

Tickets (£5/£3 concessions) available on the door or from ticket source.
