SAUL ROSE & MACLAINE COLSTON + BARRY GOODMAN

September 7, 2022

7:30 pm

Free Entry

Saul Rose and Maclaine Colston met while in the ground breaking Kings of Calicutt with Eliza Carthy. With their unusual combination of melodeon and hammered dulcimer, the duo released their acclaimed first album Sand and Soil in 2009. The album received several award nominations and one of its tracks ended up on the 2010 Folk Awards album due to Saul’s nomination for Musician of the Year.

Saul Rose continues to be a ubiquitous force on the folk scene (Faustus, Wayward, Transports, War Horse). Maclaine Colston’s performances include The Lord of the Rings soundtrack concerts with the LPO at the Royal Albert Hall and session work including the BBC Secret Life of Plants.

After all the postponements of the last 18 months Mac and Saul managed a mini-tour out in September 2021 culminating in a live broadcast on Radio 3’s In Tune with Katie Dereham before finishing at Cecil Sharp House. They are playing Chippenham and Whitby Folk Festivals in 2022.

Barry Goodman is a great friend of the club and has been involved in the folk music scene for the past fifty years! Barry sings songs from the English tradition as well as some of his own compositions and songs from other writers, accompanied by melodeon, concertina or guitar, and sometimes not accompanied at all!
