Keep on trucking with folk legends
FOUNDING members of folk juggernaut Spiers and Boden are top of the bill for Stroud Folk Festival later this month.
They're on stage at the Sub Rooms with a host of other folk stalwarts – Gloucestershire singer/songwriter Jonny Coppin, Stroud's Martha Tilston and BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award-winners Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar.
They're joined by Cambridge Folk Festival's Best Act O'Hooley & Tidow and top trio The Young'uns, who have become one of the most sought-after folk acts.
But if you don't fancy shelling out £25 to see the whole kaboodle, you can pick up Spiers and Boden (pictured left) tickets for just £15.
