Damian has visited us a few times whilst in the area and we’re delighted to welcome him back as our main featured act. He is more well known for his folk rock band Pressgang that has been going since 1986 but his solo performances capture your soul as he knocks beautiful tunes out on the Hurdy Gurdy and Hammered Dulcimer  along with unaccompanied songs that he invites the audience to join in with. These rarely seen instruments have to be heard to be believed, see an earlier performance at Seend on the hammered dulcimer below.b&g photos 2009

Also joining us are 2 very well known Wiltshire folkies the wonderful Bob & Gill Berry who between them run Devizes folk club and Chippenham Folk Festival. 2 beautiful voices in close harmony. All makes for another superb night!
