Pilgrims’ Way will play Newport’s Lyceum Folk and Acoustic Club on November 2.
Formed by default under a Stockport pub table in early 2010 by Ed, Tom, and past member, Lucy Wright, Pilgrims’ Way has grown to incorporate a dazzling array of instrumentation and millinery. With the extraordinarily omni-skilled musician Jon Loomes, and champion Renaissance woodwind parper and oboe wrangler Jude Rees joining along the way, the prospect of an early night will be slim.
With influences starting in early music, passing through Playford and the Morris traditions, picking up prog, soul, and pop, it’s impossible to categorise the sound they make as folk music is fed through their unique steam driven sound-mincing engine.
Expect to hear music from acclaimed albums 2011’s Wayside Courtesies and 2016’s Red Diesel, and the band’s latest offering Stand and Deliver.
- Doors open at 8.00pm for an 8.30pm start Tickets £8.00 available on the door or from Ruth on 07966754366
