Free concerts Every Saturday at the UGT highlighting local performers.
Saturday 23rd June 2018. 10am – 12 noon. Venue opens at 9.30am
Josie and Jim – aka MILTON HIDE – present ‘Folk with a slant’, originals and covers.
Milton Hide’s songs are often stories about people or places they know. Often uplifting, seldom depressing, sometimes uptempo and sometimes laid back, many original songs and a few surprise covers, Josie and Jim’s voices and playing blend like your favourite smoothie.
Milton Hide had a flying start to their first musical year – opening for R2 Folk Awards Winner, Jim Moray, supporting the legendary Martin Carthy and the iconic singer-songwriter Steve Tilston. They wrote and recorded a charity Christmas single, Christmas Lite. Now they have honed their stage craft, written new material, created new arrangements and have just released their first official EP, Little Fish.
“Milton Hide’s honesty of songwriting, subtlety of musicianship and natural on-stage chemistry sees them never fail to connect with and impress an audience.'”
Trevor Moss. The Lantern Society
“Male/female duo, authentically delivering trad tunes with a very modern twist. Excellent original songwriting that you’d expect from such a seasoned, creative and talented team. Definitely not to be missed”
Chris Giles, Folk Is Not A Dirty Word And Neither Is Country
