Acoustic folk with a dash of whimsy returns to the Eastbourne Under Ground Theatre on July 6 (10am-noon) courtesy of Seaford-based duo, Kali & Katie.

They’re back at the UGT for the first time since their debut there in the summer of 2012.

Kalisaya Flynn (guitar) and Katie Hall (penny whistle) achieve stunning harmonies with both voices and instruments, in a repertoire of self-penned songs and a few classic covers.

Most of their own songs are simple but annoyingly catchy – with many of them inspired by Seaford’s heritage and folklore of smuggling and seafaring.

So ease yourself gently into a summer Saturday with folky ballads such as “First Time” and “Moontide Grooving”, the story of the daughter of a Seaford smuggler.

The music starts at 10am.

Entry is free. Coffee, tea and homemade cakes will be for sale.

Fairtrade coffee & tea, and home-made cakes will be on sale

throughout. The UGT coffee-bar and foyer will then stay open until

4pm, for the first Saturday viewing of the theatre’s new exhibition

of pictures by Sussex artist Peter Waller.
