ELY Folk Club will welcome a return visit of the nationally acclaimed band Pilgrim’s Way on Wednesday 17th April at the Old Dispensary in St. Mary’s Street.

Refreshingly different, but reassuringly traditional, Pilgrims’ Way are a band with a big personality and big sound. Their influences are many and varied, but they share a deep respect for the tradition and take as their inspiration some of the most influential bands from the 60s/70s revival. Their aim is to present gimmick-free English folk of the finest kind.

Since playing at Ely Folk Club in 2011, the band has expanded to include multi-instrumentalist Jon Loomes, on guitar, fiddle, mandolin, concertina, melodeon and hurdy-gurdy.

Their support act at Ely will be Passing Wind, a recently-formed band from the Bury St Edmunds area who play a wide variety of music including folk and jazz.

Doors open at 8pm, and music starts at 8.30pm. Tickets cost £10 on the door, but are £9 in advance and can be booked by phone, 01353 740999 or via the website www.elyfolkclub.co.uk.
