MUSIC on the Levels announces the return of the popular folk duo Mitchell and Vincent for the first free tea-time concert of 2019.

The concert will be held in St Mary’s church on Main Road, Westonzoyland, TA7 0EP and not in the church hall as previously advertised. This is accommodate the larger numbers that have been attending the concerts this season.

West Country-based David Mitchell and Graham Vincent are in great demand throughout the UK and abroad, playing a lively and varied mix of traditional tunes and songs, arranged by them for Fiddle and Classical Guitar.

They have been well-received at previous Music on the Levels concerts.

They have performed at a whole variety of festivals, events and concerts around the UK, including three slots at the 2017 Glastonbury Festival, and as far afield as The Netherlands, and have supported Tim Edey, Archie Fisher MBE, Jackie Oates and Kate Rusby along the way.

Since their last appearance in Westonzoyland, the pair have again been busy performing up and down the country – London, Broadstairs, Winchester and numerous West County places including at the Quayside Festival in Bridgwater this Summer and Dunster by Candlelight.

David plays guitar (one he has made himself) while Graham provides the vocal as well as playing fiddle. In an unusual coincidence they both trained as luthiers after they left school.

“Yep, both of us wanted to spend our time making guitars’, says Graham, ‘Life, of course, always gets in the way somewhat and by the time our paths crossed we’d both retrained. I’d been designing furniture, then houses, got qualified and started running my own architectural practice. Dave had been to University and trained as a teacher.

“Once music has a hold of you it doesn’t let go easily and Dave and I found ourselves playing together in a ceilidh band called Fiddlestix.”

The concert is on January 27, 2019 is in St Mary’s church, Westonzoyland, TA7 0EP on Main Road, and will start at 3.30pm. Doors open at 3pm.

Admission to the concert is free. Music on the Levels is grateful to Sedgemoor District Council and Westonzoyland Parish Council for financial support.
