Spalding Folk Club is looking forward to its first visit by Newcastle upon Tyne duo, Jinski, on Wednesday, March 5 at the South Holland Centre.

The pairing of Liverpool born Steve Wegrzynski and Geordie lad Dave Kennedy perform original singer-songwriter material with a folk flavour supported by sensitive acoustic guitar arrangements.

The event starts at 8.15pm in the Lounge Bar.

Next Thursday, March 6, Peterborough’s Key Theatre hosts a concert with The Young’uns. The Teesside trio have established themselves on the folk scene with their blend of tuneful close harmonies and gentle humour. You will be guaranteed a most entertaining evening.
