Friends’ Winter Concert: Higgs Bo’sun

Guitars, fiddles and much more…

Higgs Bo’sun is an exciting, newly-formed folk band who’ll be playing at the Framework Knitters Museum for the Friends’ Winter Concert in the Chapel on Friday 29th November at 2.30pm.

They’ll be performing a mix of traditional and modern songs, ballads and shanties from English, Scottish, Irish and North American heritage. The five members use a variety of instruments as well as the usual guitars, including fiddles and banjos. A melodeon, bouzouki and bodhran may also make an appearance. Foot-tapping and singing along is encouraged!

Barbara Harrington from the Friends said: “As it’s getting close to the festive season, there’ll be a Christmas song or two and mince pies after the show. Our annual concert has always proved very popular and we advise people to buy tickets in advance.”

Tickets cost £6, including refreshments, and are available from the museum shop or by calling 0115 921 5253 or 984 5375.
