Folk Concert: Cathryn Craig & Brian Willoughby

Concert: Folk Concert
Date: 7.30pm, Saturday 13th May 2017
Performers: Cathryn Craig & Brian Willoughby

Cathryn Craig and Brian Willoughby met in Michael Snow's recording studio in Nashville. Brian and he had written the song Hard Luck Café… Michael said he knew just the person to sing it! When Brian came to record the first album of his own songs, 'Black & White', he invited Cathryn to sing. Together they wrote 'The Fire', 'Alice's Song' and 'Black & White'. Apart from 'Love Belongs Right Here', a Mary Hopkin/Brian composition sung by Mary, Cathryn sang on the whole album and so the duo of Cathryn Craig & Brian Willoughby was born…

With a combined working history reading like a Who's Who of household names in music… Righteous Brothers, Mary Hopkin, Chet Atkins, Strawbs and many more, now it’s their turn at the front of the stage, to sing and play their own well-crafted brand of acoustic guitar-based material.

Their 'Alice’s Song' was an Aled Jones “Highlight of the Year” on BBC Radio 2. Cathryn was Simon Mayo's star guest on BBC Radio 2 Day, live from Nashville. The Telegraph's Martin Chilton named the duo as his "Folk Gig Pick" in 2015.
