Cornish bluegrass at the Beehive

THERE is a treat for folk and bluegrass fans at Honiton’s Beehive Centre on Saturday 9th April when Cornish band Flats and Sharps play an evening of British bluegrass.

Flats and Sharps are four talented singers and musicians from Penzance who have been delighting audiences with their energetic performances for more than ten years.  Their shows include a range of influences from foot-stomping traditional bluegrass to their own original music.

Support comes from True Foxes, a Cornish duo, Amie and Chloe, who are emerging from Covid hibernation to bring their folk-pop music to audiences around the region.

On Saturday 23rd, Noble Jacks bring their fiddle-driven high energy, foot-stomping folk-rock to the Beehive.
