Folk bands due to perform (From Worcester News)

"FOLK fans can see two of the region’s finest bands on one billing on Friday.

Meet on the Ledge and Greenman Rising are both performing tonight at the Marr’s Bar in Pierpoint Street Worcester.

The Ledge are back gigging after a two year break, combining a mix of original and traditional numbers to form what critics have called ‘a unique musical experience’.

Having played every major folk festival in the country, including the prestigious Cropredy festival, and top venues including Birmingham Symphony Hall.

Greenman Rising fronted by ex Worcester Royal pupil Steve Bentley and his son Woody are an eight-piece band built around the power house of melodeon, bodhran & guitar, supplemented by fiddles, sax, clarinet, flute and bass.

Greenman are performing after playing the sold-out Bearded Theory Festival.
