FOLK fans who enjoy good live music should look forward to an appearance by two musicians at a village hall near Rugby.

Ross Couper and Tom Oakes will be playing at Stretton under Fosse Village Hall on Friday, October 28.

Ross and Tom have a varied and exciting repertoire of folk music played on fiddle, guitar and flute, from haunting melodies to foot-stomping reels.

Ross, the fiddle player, is a member of the Scots Folk Award winning band of the year Bodega and the popular Peatbog Faeries.

Tom has won many awards for his guitar and flute playing and has worked with Luke Daniels of Riverdance fame, and Radio 2 Folk Award winner Damien Barber.

These two very sought after young musicians will appeal to anyone enjoying the current folk music revival as well as looking for a great footstomping night out.

Their music is lively, fresh and modern with roots in Scotland and Ireland and their wide ranging repertoire also harks back to traditional themes.
