On Tuesday 1 May, celebrated harmonica player Will Pound and fellow musicians will be performing live at Ilmington Village Hall as they begin their Through the Seasons tour.
Award-winning folk musician Will Pound and friends
A celebration of the year in folk dance, Through the Seasons gives audiences a chance to experience three exceptional musicians as they showcase beautiful arrangements of traditional dance tunes and songs, with Will's innovative and playful style from all the joy of a summer’s festival to the thrill of a winter’s fireside rapper sword-dance.
Will is joined by Benji Kirkpatrick (Bellowhead, Faustus, The Transports) and Ross Grant (Inlay). Debs Newbold weaves a captivating story through the music with a vibrancy and power that will leave audiences captivated.
Together Will and his collaborators bring the Morris and folk dance year to life, creating a unique and powerful experience in English culture for audiences of all ages. With guest appearance by the famous Ilmington Morris.
Tickets £15 (£17 on the door) will be on sale from 1 March from Ilmington Community Shop or by calling Bryan on 01608 682996.
