Their repertoire will include tunes by the 17th century harpist Turlough O'Carolan, Scottish bagpipe tunes, traditional songs and tunes from Ireland, Scotland and across the Atlantic to the New World.

They will sing and accompany themselves on guitar, bazouki, mandola and banjo.

Sue will be joined by guest Kate Thomson, a flautist and singer from Cornwall.

Kate will perform some self-penned folk songs, as well as sing and play with both Sue and George in a concert of folk music with the emphasis on the lyrical rather than the rumbustious.

The event will take place at St Paul's Church Honiton on Saturday, June 20, at 7.30pm
