TWO rising stars in the world of folk music are to visit Whitchurch next month.

Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar will be the next guests of North Shropshire Folk, at 8pm on Saturday, March 21 at The Talbot Theatre in Whitchurch Leisure Centre.

They joined forces in 2011, combining Russell’s powerful vocals and driving guitar style with Algar’s All-Ireland winning fiddle playing.

The duo have since become one of the most sought after acts on the British folk scene, in 2013 the pair won the BBC Radio Two Young Folk Award before going on to win the Horizon Award for best breakthrough act in 2014.

In 2015 they were nominated in the BBC Radio Two Folk Award Best Duo category.

Having toured extensively in the UK for five years, as well as Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands, Greg and Ciaran have released three studio albums.
