MOLLY AND THE MOON : 7:30pm (doors 7pm)

Join Molly-Anne and friends in an intimate, acoustic night of music in aid of
TreeSisters: women seeding change, a charity designed to empower women from the developing world through the reforestation of our precious, tropical rainforests.

Molly & The Moon are an alternative and uplifting musical group from local Gloucestershire, bringing a quaint British Folk charm to the Americana genre.

With a soulful, Folk inspired-sound fused with acoustic elements of Bluegrass and Americana, Molly-Anne accompanies herself on guitar and harmonica, backed by Beth Hill on banjo/double
bass, Andy Guy on guitar/double bass and Andy Chinner/Jason Titley on percussion.

Molly's distinctive, earthy vocal sound is beautifully complimented by the uplifting three-part harmonies of Beth and Andy, a real stand-out feature of their music.


Writing poetic, upbeat songs and enjoying a joyfully sweet but unabashed live presence, the band shine a new perspective on folk music, bringing the genre new ideas about consciousness,
spirituality, humanity, beauty, nature and peace. A passionate vegan and environmentalist, Molly hopes to spread love, unity and connection through her songwriting and enjoys a joyful live presence.


Molly has previously enjoyed sell-out headline shows in her local county of Gloucestershire and has recently supported Folk heroes Noble Jacks, Cara Dillon, Ninebarrow, Jessica Boswell
and Mishra on their UK tours. A recent highlight saw the band performing on the prestigious 'Under The Apple Tree' sessions, hosted by BBC Radio 2's 'Whispering' Bob Harris.

Molly & The Moon are looking forward to an exciting 2020, bringing new ideas, phases and genre-combinations to their music.

Join Molly & The Moon, plus a host of special guests for an evening of intimate, candlelight music to raise money for TreeSisters.

THE CARRIVICK SISTERS : 8pm

The Carrivick Sisters are one of the UK's top young bluegrass and folk acts. Twins Laura and Charlotte perform their original songs and instrumentals along with a few carefully chosen covers on guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, and clawhammer banjo. Their busy touring schedule is rapidly building them a reputation for engaging and entertaining live performances with tight sibling vocal harmonies and multi-instrumental virtuosity. Having grown up in South Devon, an area rich in folk lore and legends, much of their original material is inspired by their local surroundings and history.

As well as touring all over the UK, the Carrivick Sisters have performed at major festivals in Canada and mainland Europe. They have released five studio albums ("My Own Two Feet" - 2006, "Better Than 6 Cakes" - 2007, "Jupiter's Corner" - 2009, "From the Fields" - 2011, and "Over the Edge" - 2013) to much critical acclaim and airplay worldwide. Their 6th album, "10 Years Live" was recorded live at The Convent in Stroud and is a 10 year retrospective and celebration, with half of the album being old favourites chosen by fans and the other half previously unrecorded material.

The Carrivick Sisters first started performing as a duo in 2006, originally as buskers before starting to play more and more proper gigs, turning professional when they left school in 2007. In 2007 they won the South West Busker’s and Street Entertainer’s Competition, gaining themselves their first spot at Glastonbury Festival. In 2008 Laura achieved 2nd place at the RockyGrass Fiddle Contest in America. The Carrivick Sisters were finalists in the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards 2010 and were named Band/Duo of the Year in the 2011 FATEA Awards. Most recently Charlotte won first place in both Old-time banjo and fiddle at FOAOTMAD's festival in Gainsborough 2012.
