Transatlantic folk duo at the Pack O’ Cards, Combe Martin, on Saturday (October 28)

Transatlantic duo James Hickman and Dan Cassidy will be the concert guests at Combe Martin’s Shammick Acoustic this Saturday, with music inspired by the traditions of both sides of the pond.

As well as appearing on several recordings of his late sister, Eva Cassidy, Dan got together with James to perform throughout the UK, and more recently they have incorporated new original material into their sets, as well as the traditional music of Britain and America.

Born in Shropshire, and raised on a diet of folk and bluegrass music through his dad, an avid bluegrass musician, James has been performing in sessions and folk clubs since he was 13.

After attending music college, he has lived and played in Ireland and Iceland before returning to England.

Dan also came from a musical family, taking up the violin at the age of 10, since when he has absorbed a broad spectrum of musical styles from classical and jazz, to country and rock.

The gig starts at 8pm at the Pack O’ Cards pub. Tickets are £8 at the door, or £7 in advance from www.wegottickets.com/ShammickAcoustic
