The Teacups in concert @ Shammick Acoustic


Date: 23rd Jun 2018 7:30pm
Comprising the talents of four graduates of Newcastle’s Folk and Traditional Music degree course, this a capella quartet has been singing up a storm across the UK circuit during the past few years, with acclaimed performances at Shepley, Beverley, Warwick, Sidmouth, Whitby and many other top folk festivals, as well as in Europe. One of their number, Alex Cumming, is no stranger to Shammick Acoustic – in fact, he regards it as one of his favourite clubs – having performed here with Nicola Beazley and with James Finlay. Now living in the US, he is a multi-talented performer and workshop leader in both countries. Kate Locksley, concentrates on songs and singing, whether it be with The Teacups, the all-female a capella trio Wychwood, or with the folk trio Night Fall. Rosie Calvert is another multi-talented person who teaches, composes, makes and plays instruments as well as singing, and performs with female trio Speldosa and in a duo with the other member of The Teacups, Will Finn, who she describes as ‘awesome’. As a whole, The Teacups provide “a proper feast of English folk songs sung with intelligence, heart, and soul.” Can’t wait!
