SUFFOLK HERRING FESTIVAL 2017

Venue: The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth IP19 8BY link
Taking place on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th October. A day of events for all the family with music, words and plays, all about the humble herring. Come along for a taste – in every sense - of the glory days of the Suffolk fishing industry and the annual autumn harvest of North Sea herring by Suffolk drifters manned by Suffolk men in jerseys and oilies. While herring isn’t as familiar an item on the menu as it once was, you probably know whitebait, which is simply the herring young. There’ll be a day-long outdoor barbecue of fresh caught North Sea herring & bloaters, as well as the chance to try the famous Dutch soused herring (maatjes haring). In addition to its regular menu, the Cut’s Café will offer a special kipper kedgeree and pumpkin soup. The fish will be caught the day before (shoals allowing) – You simply can’t get fresher!

By Thea Smiley. Part of today's Herring Festival. For adults and those aged 10+.
Who was this Wildman? Devil, merman, sea spirit? The legend of Orford says he was captured at sea and incarcerated in the Castle where he was hung upside down in an attempt to make him speak. Not only would he not oblige but to the horror of the towns people he showed no respect for Christianity when taken to Orford Church. After six months he finally escaped and found his way back to the sea and disappeared for ever. Or did he? In this tale the Wildman’s presence is still very much alive… Performed by actor Martin Bonger, with music by Sylvia Hallett, featuring the Wonderful Beast Singers and directed by Alys Kihl.
Ticket Details: Ticket price - Standard £5.00.

TRIO DHOORE & WILL POUND

Venue: The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth IP19 8BY link
Presented by FolkEast & Alan Bearman. An exciting young group of three brothers from Flanders, on hurdy-gurdy, diatonic accordion and guitar.
Championed by fRoots magazine, and with stand-put performances at Sidmouth Folk Festival and Homegrown Festival, their "rooted folk music" breathes life, freedom and energy into a repertoire of traditional Flemish tunes (and the occasional song) and their own self-penned material . Thrillingly modern in approach, engaging in style, modest and technically outstanding in execution. This is what blood-harmony sounds like in instrumental form!

Will Pound is one of the finest harmonica players of his generation whose innovative style on the mouth organ and melodeon pushes the boundaries of his instruments and the folk genre.
Ticket Details: Standard ticket £12.50
