Paradise and Thorns event held on 6th May

Ashley Hutchings with Blair Dunlop and Becky Mills

We were beautifully entertained on 6th May by folk-rock pioneer Ashley Hutchings of Fairport Convention fame and the fabulous melodic vocalist Becky Mills. Their Paradise and Thorns performance was a wonderful mix of traditional and modern folk, new songs and old, dramatic readings, sonnets, diary excerpts, and superb lyrics and musicianship. Ashley’s son Blair Dunlop also joined them and it was lovely to welcome him back following his great performance in the hall last October.
