Alex Cumming (The Teacups) & Nicola Beazley (Speldosa) are an exciting Accordion & Fiddle duo performing songs and tunes from around England and beyond. They are both recent graduates of the Newcastle University Folk and Traditional Music Degree program, and were New Roots finalists in 2014.

The last couple of years have seen Alex & Nicola build up a great reputation performing at some top UK venues and festivals including Towersey Village Festival, Whitby Folk Week, Sidmouth Folk Week, Bromyard Folk Festival, Sage Gateshead and more.

2016 sees the release of Alex and Nicola's much anticipated debut album "Across The Water" on Haystack Records, which will be accompanied by launch tours in the UK, USA and Canada.

With Alex's rhythmic danceable accordion style and strong voice, and Nicola's stunning and gutsy fiddle playing, the duo creates a big sound and gives a new voice to the wonderful canon of English Folk Music.

Friends of Fiddler's Green
Friday September 9, 2016



Date: Friday September 9, 2016 at 8 pm (doors open at 7:30 pm)

Location: Mill Road Community Space, 8 Chemin Mill, Chelsea, QC (Google maps link)

Tickets: $20 when purchased here (below) or $25 at the door

The "Friends" boast six versatile musicians, four fine singers, three songwriters, a brilliant joke teller, the occasional fiery dragon, one Order of Canada, two Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medals and one of the longest track records in Canadian Folk Music. This totally uncategorizable collection has been together, with a few personnel changes, since their inauguration at Toronto's Fiddler's Green coffeehouse in 1971. Nobody, not even the Friends themselves, can predict what might happen during one of their concerts, but it always includes humour, powerful vocal harmony, great musicianship, social commentary and an irresistible urge to dance.

The Friends were recipients of the 2003 Estelle Klein Award, given by the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals for service to folk music in Ontario. This year's Ontario tour celebrates 45 years of music and mischief.
