GET ready for a musical return to Somerset by folk duo Green Matthews.

They will be at the Cotleigh Brewery in Ford Road, Wiveliscombe tonight, Thursday, April 20.

Chris Green and Sophie Matthews play English traditional songs and tunes in a thoroughly 21st century style. Using a blend of ancient instruments such as cittern, English border bagpipes and shawm as well as modern folk instruments such as guitar, and piano accordion, Chris and Sophie breathe new life into material from hundreds of years ago, making it fresh, relevant and accessible for a modern audience.

GreenMatthews have built a reputation for combining incisive wit and humour with a genuine love for the English tradition.

They have a passion for 18th century ballads and dance tunes – several of which have been unearthed by Chris from libraries around the country and are now being performed again for the first time in two hundred years.

The concert starts at 8pm.

Tickets cost (£12 / £10 concessions) are available from Wiveliscombe Post Office tel 01984 623308) or book via www.silvertreetsessions.
