Littleborough Unplugged are acoustic music concerts featuring the best of national and international performers. These are held, from April to September, in the tiny Norman Church of St Nicholas, Littleborough (DN22 0HD); an acoustically and aesthetically excellent intimate venue. The concert proceeds support Britain’s historic architectural heritage via the Churches Conservation Trust.
There’s a fantastic start to the 2018 season with Kootch and Sign of a Teaspoon, both appearing at Littleborough Unplugged at 8.00pm on Saturday 28th April.
Kootch are a Derbyshire-based duo combining the angelic voice of Beth Aveyard and the deft guitar skills of Dean Lilleyman, Kootch play a range of contemporary and traditional folk songs, and even throw in their own material from time to time. The name Kootch derives from the Welsh ‘cwtch’, meaning the warm, safe place created by the embrace of a loved one and Kootch hope to recreate this feeling with their music.
If you enjoyed teenage years at any time through the 1980s, Sign of a Teaspoon will play your record collection on three ukuleles. They have deconstructed many of your synth-pop favourites, and a few other classics, and rearranged them for three-part ukulele and vocal harmonies. Come and listen, sing along, tap your feet or dance, they will send you home with an ear-worm or two.
