Brown Boots is Will Allen on melodeon and Martin Clarke on fiddle. Their musical background is rooted in playing music for dancing, as well as gaining inspiration from playing with their many talented musical friends at festivals and pub sessions across the country.

Will Allen is a supremely talented multi-instrumentalist, although his primary focus is as a melodeon player and fiddler. He performs an extensive repertoire of folk dance tunes, mostly from the British Isles. His music takes influences from all corners of Western Europe and he has developed a unique take on traditional tunes.

Martin Clarke is a highly-skilled fiddle player, with musical roots in the North East of England, stemming from his time living in Durham. He plays music from across the British Isles with influences from the continent. He also has an interest in North American music traditions.

7.30pm - door 7pm. Join us 6-7pm for our informal folk music session in the cafe-bar.

Tickets £16 / £14 advance Included in Spring-Summer Season 2024 Ticket (6 gigs for £75)
