Folk band to play Isle of Wight show

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays this weekend can attend a show from an internationally-acclaimed folk band during their time on the island.

According to the Isle of Wight County Press, Dan Cassidy has joined forces with British musician James Hickman and the pair will be playing at Niton Parish Church tonight (November 26th 2010) and St Mary's Church in Brading tomorrow (November 27th 2010).

Promoter Vic King said: "James is a former member of Uiscedwr. He is the lead singer and guitarist in the duo and a highly-regarded interpreter of folk song."

Mr King added that Dan Cassidy is the older brother of the late singer Eva and appeared on many of her recordings before her death.

Singer-songwriter Deborah Hodgson, who regularly travels to the Isle of Wight to play shows, is set to be the support act for the pair of performances.

Those taking Isle of Wight holidays this weekend can also have a go at decorating Christmas pottery at an open studio at Chessell Pottery Barns.
