National folk duo live at Bideford Folk Club on Thursday (March 6).

TALENTED folk duo James Fagan and Nancy Kerr return to Bideford Folk Club with a concert on Thursday this week (March 6).

The husband and wife team are twice winners of best duo at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and two of the brightest stars to have emerged from the British folk scene over the past decade.

Hosted at the Joiners Arms, the gig starts at 8pm and admission is free, although a collection will be taken.

James and Nancy combine the formidable instrumental skills audiences have come to expect from the younger generation of folk musicians, with strong voices plus a welcome interest in songs both traditional and recent.

They were last in North Devon as headline guests at Bideford Folk Festival a few years ago and at the club a couple of times since – despite a rapidly growing career they are still keen to play smaller venues on the local circuit as well as the big national stage.
