We present a show full of new (and a few not-so-new) sounds from the worlds of folk, folk-rock, singer-songwriter and roots music.

Discover the amazing true story of folk hero Tom Paine, who went from being a corset maker in Norfolk to being "the father of the American Revolution"and also inspired a great song or two.

And we pay tribute to Fisherman's Friends with a selection of shanties and songs of the sea.
