Medicine Creek cures the COVID blues

Priddy Folk Festival is hosting two live concerts in Priddy Village Hall in October and December to help us get back into live music! All proceeds will go towards recovering some of our Covid costs and helping us bring back the festival in 2022. So we really hope you can support these events.

Our first concert is on Saturday  23rd October and is with the fabulous Medicine Creek.

Medicine Creek have been plying their whisky-soaked brand of bluegrass and americana since getting together in Bristol in 2010.

They have gained a cult following for their adrenaline-fuelled live act and gospel-flavoured harmonies, and have played at several major UK festivals, including Glastonbury, Beach Break and Shambala.

They are:
Nuala Honan (vocals/guitar/harmonica) who  began her musical career as a teenager in rural South Australia. After moving to the UK she spent 4 years fronting the highly acclaimed Alchemy Quartet.
Aaron Catlow (violin/vocals/stomp box/harmonica)  heavily influenced by folk and jazz fusion, He founded the cult gypsy-folk-funk band Sheelanagig and has become a fixture on the UK festival scene.
He has done numerous sessions for film, theatre and television, and toured all over Europe with Paescod, Elephant Talk and Mad Dog McRea.
Dorian Sutton (double bass/vocals) has played everything from bebop to death metal since he began gigging with his Dad’s ceilidh band in Newcastle in his early teens.
As a freelance musician he has played with artists as diverse as Jim Mullen, Andy Sheppard, Jim Moray and Pee Wee Ellis.
