Na-Mara

8 pm (doors open 7.30

Tickets £8


Na-Mara (Rob Garcia and Paul McNamara) have built a reputation for fine story-telling and musicianship, performing in venues and festivals across the UK, at events in France, Spain and Germany and on BBC Radio 4 and a plethora of internet and local radio stations. They consistently deliver new and exciting material to folk audiences with their own provocative material in traditional style on contemporary and historical topics; their English translations of songs from Breton, French and Quebecois traditions; and their take on traditional tunes from Brittany, France and the Spanish Celtic regions of Asturias and Galicia.
For this performance, they will include a set of songs related to the Spanish Civil War, for which they have a personal connection as Rob Garcia’s father was evacuated, aged 9, from Bilbao at the height of the Civil War. Their song ‘Only for Three Months’, which tells that story, can be watched on YouTube .Other videos can be found here and also here

"By any standards, Na-Mara are one of the outstanding duos on the contemporary music scene…” David Pratt, FATEA, 13th April 2019
