The Rachel Hamer Band
7th November, 2016 @ 8:15 pm - 11:00 pm£12 (£10 Members)
The Rachel Hamer Band were the talk of Towersey Festival 2015. Having set the club tent alight, (metaphorically speaking) with their intricate, beautiful , powerful, driven songs and tunes, we had to book them.
The band are fronted by Rachel Hamer, a commanding and emotive singer from Whitley Bay, Jedburgh guitarist Graeme Armstrong, Saltburn’s fiddle player and clogger Grace Smith and Glossops’s whistle, flute, pipes and bassoon player Sam Partridge. The music is rooted in the North Eastern tradition but encompasses a broader global feel that is totally accessible.
