2pm Thursday 20 May with Mishra

Mishra are a Sheffield-based global folk duo, drawing on their unique base of influences that encompasses folk music of the UK and America, Indian classical music, and soul to create a surprisingly accessible sound that audiences instantly connect to. Between the two of them, Kate Griffin and Ford Collier create a rich texture from their array of instruments: Irish low whistle, banjo, Indian tabla, dobro, African calabash, and guitar, all of which provide a vibrant backdrop to Kate’s striking vocals. This concert is made possible with support from The Whitaker Trust.

Join guitarist Ben Sayah for a fun interactive concert featuring a range of music including classical, blues and folk to Disney and pop songs from the past 60 years.

Be ready to join in with any percussion you have – homemade shakers using a recycled plastic bottle filled with rice, classroom instruments or just your hands! This concert is made possible with support from The Stoller Charitable Trust.
