Becky Morely begins her diary on New Years Day 2001, little does she realise just how much that year would change her life

March 2018 –

 

Local musicians Cosgrove & Banks are performing at Scoriton Village Hall on 

Saturday 24th March 8pm

Tickets £8, available from Steph, 01364 631288

Licensed bar

Cosgrave & Banks are Mike Cosgrave (accordion, guitar, whistle, vocals) and Steve Banks (fiddle, hardanger fiddle, vocals, guitar), a superb folk/acoustic duo based in Devon, England.

The technical ability, passion and sensitivity demonstrated by these two musicians is at the top of what you would hear from a folk musician who specialises in the traditional music of their own country; that they maintain this level of brilliance across a wide range of musical traditions is astonishing and a joy to listen to. Treat yourself ! 

“Cosgrave and Banks gave us a fine evening’s entertainment: instrumental pieces from around the globe, intermixed with fine versions of traditional songs and some excellent self-penned material, all underpinned by top quality musicianship.” – Anton Horwich, co-organiser, Folk On The Moor folk club
