FOLK won't make it past the foyer at Evesham Arts Centre, but no one will complain about it.

The foyer, in fact, will be the venue for a performance by a young folk duo "with a name for great harmonies and picking banjos".

A spokesman said: "Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith play both traditional and original folksong of the British Isles, heavily influenced by the songs and singers of their native East Anglia.

"Their songs tell stories of joy, struggle, hardship and celebration - in close vocal harmonies held together with driving banjo and guitar arrangements."

The spokesman added: "Over the last three years the young duo have built a reputation for arresting and moving performances, recently releasing the album 'Night Hours' - a powerful collection of poignant compositions and re-workings of traditional material."

This is the latest of Evesham Arts Centre's 'folk in the foyer' nights, which aim to "bring a wide variety of both new and traditional folk music to Evesham".

Other concerts this year will feature Sarah McQuaid, Clive Gregson, Tir na nOg and Jim Moray.

The date for the diary is Thursday, June 29, from 8pm.
