NORTHWICH Folk Club will be welcoming two acts to its next event on Friday, August 29.

Mike Billington will be the club's guest and he will be supported by Little Rach at the Harlequin Theatre on Queen Street.

Mike started his musical career with Rebec in 1975 and was a founder member of the ceilidh bands Madcap and Maggoty. He currently plays with both bands and Corvus.

Pete Thompson from the folk club said: "Mike is interested mainly in traditional folk song and instrumentals but has a keen liking for music of the renaissance. A multi-instrumentalist, he plays recorders, crumhorns, shawm, rauschpfeife – and just about anything else you can blow.

"We saw Little Rach earlier in the year and we have invited her back to support Mike.

"Carrying with her a beautifully pure voice, a true sensibility for live performance and songs that will make you laugh, cry and wonder."

The host for the night is Iain Bowley.

Doors open at 8pm for a 8.30pm start and tickets are £5 and £4 for members.
