Formed in 2008 and featuring five of the county’s best known traditional musicians, The Twagger Band appears at The Lamb Folk Club on Wednesday, December 5 .

Two of the band members, Joy Lewis and Derrick Hughes, will be familiar to Lamb regulars, having successfully guested as a duo.

Between them they play a variety of instruments, including Northumbrian smallpipes, hammer dulcimer and serpent.

Perhaps the best known band member is highly regarded singer and concertina wizard Will Duke.

A former member of the Albion Dance Band and the Etchingham Steam Band, he has recently recorded his first solo album, ‘Out of the Box’.

Sue Evans, a multi-talented instrumentalist, plays piano, hammer dulcimer and hurdy gurdy and completing the line up is Ian Chisholm who contributes guitar, bouzouki and mandolin.

The band’s repertoire reflects a deep love of British traditional music which is performed with passion, skill and an ever-present sense of fun.

Admission to this event is £5 on the door, the music starts at 8.00pm and the enquiry number is 728268.
