Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith '10 years of playing together' tour

After 10 years on the folk scene Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith will embark on an anniversary tour this autumn. To celebrate a decade of music-making they will present a retrospective show with songs & tunes taken from across their 4 albums plus a few new offerings to kick-off the next 10 years.



The duo’s live performances are a celebration of traditional music but there is also a deep integrity and sincerity that stems from their passion for the social themes within the music. There is a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice, as well as the occasional love song.



Their shows manage to be both hard-hitting and uplifting and it is this ability that justifies their reputation as two of the most exciting musicians and social commentators on the scene.





BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019 – Nominated Best Traditional Track

?

‘Making common cause between antique songs and present circumstances is one of the grails of modern folk, one this young duo pull off impressively...Rousing stuff.’ The Observer

?

‘This is a well-judged collection that feels very timely in its preoccupation with the working poor, and of economic and ecological instability. Observations about modern life blend seamlessly with traditional material, delivered with rare poise and delicate musicianship. What particularly stands out on all the self-penned numbers is the duo’s ability to treat contemporary subject matter effectively in folk music.’ ???? Songlines
