Birchmeadow welcomes stars

Two firm favourites are returning to the Birchmeadow early this year. On Saturday 20 January, French-Swiss guitarist Claude Bourbon visits. Claude is a maestro known throughout Europe and America for his amazing guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, Middle Eastern, and Russian stylings into uncharted territories. He has played Glastonbury and Isle of Wight Festivals and the BBC said of him, “This accomplished artist offers tender, compelling performance through highly developed precision.”

Then on Saturday 24 February, Cumbrian singer-songwriting duo Chapin Wickwar bring their sensitive guitar melodies and rich, smooth vocal harmonies back to the venue. Their debut album If was released in 2015, receiving fabulous reviews and much radio play as well as being runner-up in the Best Album from a Duo category in the FolkWords Album Awards.
Tickets for both gigs are £10 in advance from Downes’s or Hurdley’s in Broseley, or online from or £12 on the door; doors open at 7.30pm.
