2pm Thursday 25 February 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.

2pm Thursday 4 March with Boubakiki
Boubakiki is a duo of saxophone (Joe Steele) and handpan (Rosie Bergonzi) formed in 2017. For their unusual combination of instruments, Joe and Rosie create highly varied music: from atmospheric, serene textures to upbeat earworms, drawing influence from classical, jazz, folk and non-Western musical traditions. They also play innovative arrangements of existing pieces, which both complement and contrast their own material.
