£10
Folk Songs Concerts in London

THE COUNTRY DIARY IN SONG WITH BROOMDASHER – 7.30 ON SAT 11 DECEMBER 2021 ST MICHAELS CHURCH CAMDEN HIGH STREET
Almost thirty of the most famous traditional folk songs – including Wild Mountain Thyme; Bushes and Briars; The Seeds of Love and If I was a Blackbird – take you on a journey through the year in a musical version of The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady – with proceeds going to St Michael’s Church funds.
Broomdasher’s folk music has been playing to sold-out houses across the country through the Autumn, recreating a nostalgic, heart-warming and intimate atmosphere – in which you also have a chance to join in the choruses.

Edith Holden’s 1906 Country Diary sold seven million copies and is still the all-time Sunday Times Booklist chart-topper, number one for 65 weeks.
This 90-minute musical vividly brings the book with songs reflecting the farming seasons and holidays like Mayday and Christmas.
Critics have described the show as “Traditional Folk meets Edwardian Eco Warrior – Fantastic!”; “A Fabulous Musical Entertainment”; “Wonderful Singing”, “Glorious Entertainment”, and

“Inspiring and Uplifting”
.
