This second concert of The Poppy Folk Day features a fantastic line-up of East Midlands artists.
Three parts English, one part Orkney, Looma plays acoustic roots and folk music from the swamps of Louisiana to the Swedish midnight sun, and everywhere in between. Bringing together folk, blues, cajun, bluegrass and country traditions, as well as original songs, Looma mix driving energy with strong vocals and foot-tapping tunes.
Phil Langran has been writing, playing and singing songs since laying hands on his first guitar at the age of fifteen, leaving a trail of broken strings from Brighton to Inverness. In recent years, particularly inspired by workshops with Kathryn Williams, Roddy Woomble, Greg Russell and Boo Hewerdine he has further honed his distinctive style literate, highly melodic and keenly observed scenes of life, love and landscape. He has recorded and appeared extensively as a solo artist and with the Phil Langran Band.
Chris & Helen Morris have dipped in & out of the folk scene for the last 40 years, both musically & as dancers. Helen sings a mixture of traditional & contemporary songs and accompanies herself on guitar. Chris plays guitar, flute, mouth organ & sings mostly contemporary 1960's songs.
Jim Hellewell picked up his first harmonica in the early 60s, playing mainly blues. Fast forward to the end of the decade and he was introduced to folk music which gave him the chance to use his harp, playing and singing with other musicians. At present he plays and sings with the Strawberry Jammers.
