An American singer-songwriter and virtuoso guitarist are bringing their combined talents to Falkirk Folk Club tonight (Thursday).

Her great-grandfather, Jacob Sowder, was recorded by Cecil Sharp and is featured in Sharp’s book “English Folk Songs From The Southern Appalachians”.

Brian Willoughby is well known for his virtuoso performances on electric and acoustic guitar, with progressive folk/rock band Strawbs.

He has also played with Mary Hopkin, Joe Brown, New World, Roger Whittaker, Bridget St.John, Jim Diamond and Monty Python.

Both have accompanied Nanci Griffith.

It promises to be an entertaining night - as one critic said: “They catch a mood that could produce goosebumps on sheet metal.”

To reserve tickets, priced £7 (£5) email falkirkfolkclub@outlook.com.

Falkirk Folk Club meets at the Tolbooth Tavern, Tolbooth Street, Falkirk.

Doors open at 8pm.
