Join us for an online concert with guest, Catch the Sparrow (Suze Terwisscha) plus songs and tunes from Adam Holden and Miggins Fiddle.
Catch the Sparrow (Suze Terwisscha)
In 2020, Dutch singer-songwriter Catch The Sparrow moved countries in the middle of a global pandemic to pursue her love for folk and traditional music in Newcastle upon Tyne. Amidst loss, loneliness and heartbreak she rediscovered her voice and musical ambitions, building up a repertoire of thoughtful, delicate songs that showcase a deep understanding of, and passion for, the traditional material she took inspiration from. Soaring melodies and rich harmonies are paired with intricate lyrics, in which her inquisitive spirit shines through.
Adam Holder is a singer songwriter. Over the last decade or so he’s written approximately seventy songs in a range of styles and with different audiences or contexts in mind. These touch on immediate social, domestic and natural landscapes but are also rooted in a love of political ideas. He usually writes alone but has written music for words (by Cohen, James and Frost) and words for music (by Bley, Souter). His song “Nobody to hear it but the singer” was in the final of 2019 Folklub songwriter of the year competition.
Miggins Fiddle folk duo are guitar player and folk singer Maurice Condie and fiddle player Marina Dodgson. They perform original arrangements of traditional tunes and songs from Northumberland and beyond. Formed in 2019, they have performed in folk clubs, venues and community settings across the region. Maurice and Marina also play together to lead Phoenix Folk’s popular online tune sessions
