DanceEats – the Café and Bar at DanceEast, the Jerwood DanceHouse on the Ipswich Waterfront – is to host an evening of folk music for the first time, on Saturday 23rd July, when local duo “Silbury Hill” will bring their own brand of folk rock to the venue.
Emma Brightmore – Head of Marketing and Communications at DanceEast – says that this is a first for the venue which, to date, has regularly held Jazz concerts and they are keen to branch out with different styles of music.
Silbury Hill was formed in 2008 when Flautist and Guitarist Scott Dolling joined forces with David Stainer, who plays Guitar and Mandolin for the Duo. They admit to not being folk purists and play a variety of music including folk, rock, and popular standards as well as original material. Much of their original material has a local flavour – taking its inspiration from local history, stories, and personalities – some of which was included on their debut CD “The Tudor Rose” which was released earlier this year.
The Duo have enjoyed a busy summer which has seen them play at festivals around the region – including Leigh Folk Festival and Ipswich Music Day – as well as a short visit to France for their 3rd annual appearance at the national “Fete de la Musique”.
Entry to the DanceEats concert is £5.00 per person which includes a drink. The music starts at 8.00pm. Advance tickets may be purchased in advance from DanceEast – telephone 01473 295230 or on line at www.danceeast.co.uk
