Beggar’s Bridge are a band from Hull who write tuneful and engaging song-stories in the best folk traditions, often based upon tales of people, places and events from their home county of East Yorkshire. Their sound has a timeless quality to it, feeling at once traditional, yet contemporary, and they have earned an excellent reputation at folk clubs, venues and festivals around the North and beyond for their live performances, as well as garnering some outstanding reviews in the national folk press for their recorded output. It’s not just the music that makes a Beggar’s Bridge gig memorable, though; the song-stories are explained with a good helping of earthy humour, making for an experience which is not only musically satisfying, but amusing and informative too…
Please note that Beggar’s Bridge can adapt their format to suit all venues and occasions. So, if you’re a folk club which prefers its guests to perform without amplification, or your venue is simply too small to accommodate all of us, we can strip things back accordingly and still play for you!
“Beggar’s Bridge craft songs from stories in the way that John Conolly and Bill Meek did in their heyday and that is high praise indeed”
