GCT Folk Club is the place to see the finest local folk, roots and trad musicians and band in our socially-distanced yet intimate theatre.
Comprising the singing talents of Kate Locksley, Rosie Calvert and Will Finn, the acapella group have been creating a storm across the UK festival circuit in the past few years with critically acclaimed performances at Shepley Spring Festival, Beverley Folk Festival, Warwick Folk Festival, Sidmouth Folk Week, Whitby Folk Week and many more.
Usually a quartet with Alex Cumming who is currently isolating in the USA, they met whilst studying on the Folk Degree at the University of Newcastle and formed The Teacups in 2010. It’s an age-old format, performing an age-old collection of songs. But The Teacups are new, young, and after the success of their debut album, ‘One For The Pot’ which revelled in the vibrancy of youth, and all that heartache, or confusion, or euphoria, that goes with it, the band took significant steps forward with their second album ‘Of Labour and Love’, an offering which represents a maturity in material matched only by its maturity in sound. And the best way to get that across to the listeners? Through unadorned, gutsy singing, where arrangements add the intrigue.
Their latest offering, 'In Which...' is due to be released at the beginning of October and is already garnering high praise, but following a short launch tour in early 2021, the group are due to take an indefinite hiatus. Catch them while you still can.
You can come down and see them in our safe, socially distanced Theatre space by reserving a table for up to 4 people . We ask that you book for a single household or support bubble only. Our staff will serve you drinks to and from your table.
Doors 7pm | Music Starts 7.30pm | Bar closes 9.30pm
