The traditional folk club is dying out.
Fire In Your Heart is a new monthly folk night for Leicester, bringing together elements of the old and new to both celebrate and renovate the time-honoured tradition of gathering together to share stories through songs.
Compered by homegrown Leicester folk favourite Grace Petrie (The Guardian; BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show), FIYH will feature a headline act each month from the very best acts on both the traditional and alternative folk scene, as well as floor spots to showcase local talent and build a folk community in Leicester. It will also be recorded and released as a free podcast every month.
Previous guests have included O’Hooley & Tidow, Chris T-T, Maddy Carry & Gavin Osbourne
At Duffy’s Bar, Pocklington’s Walk, Leicester.
