The Cambridge Folk Club is to hold a showcase this Friday (January 11)
Pat Crilly & Greg Camburn, Chris Fox & the Running Men, and Three Years Younger will all be at the popular venue upstairs at the Golden Hind pub on Milton Road.
Pat and Greg are a popular duo who have been working together for about 12 years. They perform both traditional and original material, with the latter compositions tending to reflect Pat's travel experiences and the folks he's met along the way.
So songs featuring Senegalese steel workers and offshore divers sit comfortably alongside twisted Irish love stories and songs about whatever has occurred to them recently - all enriched by Greg's soprano sax and whistle, and alternate tunings on guitar and Irish bouzouki from Pat.
Seasick Steve caught Pat and Greg at the now defunct 12 Bar Club in Soho and commented: "These guys are good."
Chris Fox's material explores the human experience using an eclectic range of styles across the folk and roots spectrum.
Chris writes and performs songs influenced by traditional and contemporary folk, Americana, country and blues, and he will be joined on Friday by some of his musical associates, the Running Men.
Three Years Younger are sisters Megan and Charlotte Simpson from Suffolk. Aged just 14 and 17, the pair have been singing together for as long as they can remember, and perform in a variety of styles from Nashville country to alternative indie rock.
Covering the songs of others and penning tunes of their own, the sisters are about to release their debut album and were really excited to be among the Folk Club's guests at last year's Cambridge Folk Festival.
The showcase starts at 8pm (doors open 7.30pm)
Tickets: £10 on the door, £9 in advance, and £8 for members.
