Tradewinds Folk Events is a Not for Profit group providing a venue for beautiful music.
We bring a delicatessen of the best folk, world, acoustic, blues from professional & semi-professional artists. Expect a comfortable, ambient setting at affordable prices. Either at the Dungeon or a House Concert, often to take advantage of a Touring Artist’s brief visit.


Oh, wow!  We haven’t finished 2018 yet!

Christmas Party / Concert on 8th December 2018


Our Christmas revel on Saturday 8th December at the Allsops’ house is going to be a happy affair.  As well as a glitzy line-up of local talent (still adding to that),  with chief angel on the tree being Chris Cady, we are hoping to bring some cheer to the farmers
that have done it so tough this year.

Buy A Bale’ is a registered charity and we’re sure the money will go to where it is most needed.

As much a party as a concert we want you to bring your voices and be ready to jingle your bells with us.  Carole is raffling a Christmas cake as well as anything else she can lay her hands on.  Any contributions gratefully received.

To quote an old song: “go tell it on the mountain….”

Winter Wilson

Winter Wilson

Winter Wilson are back on the road, following a hugely successful UK tour with folk-rock legends Fairport Convention, and now featuring songs from their latest CD Far Off on the Horizon. As with previous offerings, this new album has met with great critical acclaim:

“Dave Wilson’s songs pull no punches when relating to the sights and sounds of everyday local life, and are complimented by Kip’s powerful and emotional voice.” Daily Telegraph, January 2018

“A sublime collection of tracks to kick off the new year in style. Well-balanced, strong songs delivered with care, and by people that are passionate about their craft. Lovely.”
Grem Devlin, Living Tradition Magazine

“Winter Wilson have landed another, right on the bridge of the nose; this is not an album that’s easy to ignore.” Neil King, Fatea Magazine

But it is in live performance that these two really excel, interspersing great songs, stunning harmonies and fine musicianship with often hilarious tales of life on the road. That’s why so many venues and festivals book them time and again.

“The songs were wonderful, the singing a joy. It is rare that I can sit over 2 hours listening to music I have never heard before, but be absolutely involved from beginning to end. Thank you for a really enjoyable evening.”  NM – Lincolnshire

“In 30 years of listening to folk music, I have never heard two voices blend so perfectly together.”  David Aird, Chairman Glenfarg Folk Club
