Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith
October 3 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM BST£16.50
After 10 years on the folk scene, Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith will embark on an anniversary tour this autumn. To celebrate a decade of music-making, they will present a retrospective show with songs and tunes taken from across their 4 albums, plus a few new offerings to kick off the next 10 years.
The duo’s live performances are a celebration of traditional music, but there is also a deep integrity and sincerity that stems from their passion for the social themes within the music. There is a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice as well as the occasional love song. Their shows manage to be both hard-hitting and uplifting, and it is this ability that justifies their reputation as two of the most exciting musicians and social commentators on the scene.
ABOUT THE GIG
This event will be held live on Zoom, with a remote sound engineer for high-quality sound. Our gigs allow interaction between artists and audiences, so the artist can hear you applaud and you can even have the chance to ask them any burning questions.
Tickets are £16.50, with the option to pay a bit less (£10) or a bit more (£25) depending on what is affordable for you. You only need one ticket per household.
