Beginning to feel a lot like Christmas? Well no, not really. But we’re well into Advent now, so expect to see Christmas carols and seasonal songs popping up on this blog over the next few weeks. And it seems an appropriate time to alert you to this year’s Magpie Lane Christmas shows.
We kick off the season on Saturday 12th December with our annual concerts at the Holywell Music Room in Oxford. As ever we’ll be doing afternoon and evening concerts – but please note that the afternoon concert is slightly earlier than usual, starting at 3.30. For tickets contact the Oxford Playhouse box office: 01865 305305 or www.oxfordplayhouse.com/ticketsoxford
Then on Tuesday 15th we will be making our first appearance at Cecil Sharp House in London, at Sharp’s Folk Club. The Folk Club meets in the cellar bar – we think it’s likely to be pretty packed, so get there early.
And finally, on Thursday 17th, we return to Towcester, to launch the first in a series of events organised by Sophie and Phil Thurman under the banner “Jenkinson’s Folly Presents…” at the Towcester Mill Brewery. The evening starts at 7.30 with a couple of guest spots. Then we’ll be doing two sets. And then from around 10.20 there will be a folk session for all to join in.

Hope to see you at one of these – full details on the Magpie Lane website.
Meanwhile, here’s a taster of the kind of things you can expect to hear.
