Singer-Songwriters Coming to Flintham

The Mile Roses Whisky fireside (and other songs from the road) at St Augustine’s Church, Flintham at 7.30pm on Thursday, 17th May

A fantastic collaboration of three respected solo singer-songwriters, Kate Bramley, Simon Haworth and Edwina Hayes performing contemporary British folk with a nod to Nashville, this is an evening of beautifully written songs from toe-tapping folk rockabilly to haunting ballads; of the road well-travelled, of heartache and of single malts.
