Folk group to perform in Payhembury

The unaccompanied folk group The Claque are due to sing in Payhembury in October.

Folk group The Claque, will be performing in Payhembury Parish Hall in October.

Comprising Tom Addison, Barry Lister, Dave Lowry and Sean O’Shea, the group has been described as being “distilled from the legendary groups of old, four voices of depth and maturity, blended to bring warmth and harmony to the English Tradition … Their material is drawn from the British Isles and almost all is traditional”.

The Claque sing regularly at Exeter Folk Club and more widely in the UK.

One reviewer said of the group: “They’ve all been singing for very many years in various guises - solos, duets, trios - and now, at last, as a quartet. And what a splendid quartet they are sounding now.”
