Folk at the New Room: Old Spot, with Rhona Dalling

Join us for an evening of foot stomping, uplifting, traditional live music in Bristol.

Joe Danks and Rowan Piggott bonded over a shared passion for Appalachian music. Expect foot stomping old-time music on fiddle, banjo, gourd banjo and guitar. Old Spot sees two musicians from different traditions come together to explore a shared musical love, creating traditional music that is bursting with joy and imagination.

With support from Rhona Dalling.

‘Rhona Dalling is a banjo player, singer and fiddler born out of the Newcastle folk scene. Her love of tunes came first and then out tumbled an album of ‘devastatingly effective’ songs (fRoots). ‘
