A very welcome return for the North East's favourite bard. Jez is a writer of wonderful songs, all oozing with North East life. He's an entertaining performer, who  has taken his songs all over the world to great acclaim. It's great to   have him back at the Davy Lamp.

Steve Tilston

Steve is a BBC Award winner and one of the country's greatest songwriters, with many of his songs considered modern folk song classics.  He's also a magnificent guitarist and he can sing too!

Nancy Kerr

(1.6.19)  Nancy Kerr

After playing many times at the Davy Lamp with partner James Fagan, Nancy will play her first solo gig for us! With two solo albums to her name she has a rich collection of original songs as well as her fine interpretations of traditional material, outstanding fiddle playing and guitar work. Welcome back, Nancy.

Not to be missed!

Martin Carthy
(6.7.19)  Martin Carthy

Martin has remained one of the most influential figures in British traditional music, inspiring contemporaries such as Bob Dylan and Paul Simon] and later artists such as Richard Thompson since he emerged as a young musician in the early days of the folk revival. Over the years , Martin has visited us in many different collaborations but this time he’ll be playing solo.  

George & Stewart
(3.8.19) George Welch & Stewart Hardy                            

George is now back on the road after his heart surgery and we are so happy to welcome back  this perfectly paired duo. George is probably best known for being daft as a brush, but once you have heard him perform his songs, accompanied by his own guitar playing and Stewart’s magnificent fiddle, you will  be left in no doubt that the success of this highly entertaining duo is built on solid musical foundations.
