Northern Folk with Alilou
Folk duo Alilou formed in 2012, under the name Nancy Goose. After studying at Edinburgh University, Alice (Bonifacio) and Lucy (Callen) decided to combine their classical backgrounds with the inspiring folkloric traditions of the North, infusing their music with allegory, poetry and drama. Moving to London has given a new urban setting to these ancient tales, playing on the rich and multicultural musical styles of the City, combining smoky jazz covers with rural folk and classical.
There will be wine and mince pies at the interval. Seating is limited so advance booking recommended.
Tickets: £5.00 all seats, from 020 7534 0710 or on the door if room.
