Findlay Napier and Rebecca Loebe are a singer/songwriting duo who met in an unconventional way – far from being old school friends or former band-mates, they came together on a songwriting retreat in Suffolk.
“Sometimes when you get thrown into a co-write sessions things just click,” says Napier. “This was one of those times.”
Over the last 18 months, Americana favourite Rebecca and Scottish folk legend Findlay have written together down the line from Loebe’s base in Austin, Texas and in Findlay’s Glasgow flat when Rebecca was touring the UK – and they’re bringing their combined talents to The Hive in Shrewsbury on Saturday 3 March at 7.45pm. Tickets are priced at £12 – see hiveonline.org.uk for details.
Rachel Newton will be visiting the Hive later in the year. The singer and harpist, who performs in English and Gaelic and also plays fiddle and viola, will perform at the venue on Saturday 21 April.
