Two amazing talents, Saul Rose and James Delarre, will be performing in concert at Shammick Acoustic at the Pack O’ Cards in Combe Martin on Saturday (April 28).
These two make a quite exceptional duo, combining thrilling fiddle performance with some of the finest melodeon playing to be heard on the folk scene.
Having started playing melodeon when he was just 10-years-old, Saul has been a professional musician on and off since his late teens, and has played with some of the greats of the scene, most notably The Kings of Calicutt, Waterson:Carthy, now with Faustus, and most recently in Eliza Carthy’s Wayward Band.
He also spent a year as ‘Songman’ in the West End production of War Horse. His voice is rich and warm, and beautifully suited to traditional English songs.
James has been playing violin from a young age, mostly self-taught, and turned professional very early on, working with Jim Moray, Mawkin:Causley and others, and later appeared in a number of television series and feature films.
The gig is 8pm, with doors from 7.30pm. Tickets are £8 at the door, or £7 from www.wegottickets.com/ShammickAcoustic, or the Pack O’ Cards or Pets’ Pantry in Combe Martin.
