Moonlit Poachers and June Apples

Rarely seen during the day, The Moonlit Poachers are a mysterious bunch. When they’re not snatching a trout, snaring a hare or netting a rabbit, they’re making some of the sweetest, most soulful folk music this side of the sunset with heart felt songs written by the band. The June Apples: Multi-instrumentalist sisters Ellie and Taz play guitar, fiddle and bassoon to create an atmospheric melange of folk melodies from Europe and beyond. From their Mendip roots and wanderings around Europe, this enigmatic duo will get your feet tapping rhythms you never knew existed!

Tickets: £8

Start Time: 3pm
