 The Broomdasher

Broomdasher end their whirlwind first year by singing at Loughton Folk Club on 19 October,
after being the support act at Coope, Boyes and Simpson's last ever gig, and
for John Tams The Ram - where they sang a special arrangement of one of John's
songs that he has gifted them.

Broomdasher are a London-based acapella group singing traditional English folk, who perform
as an 8; 10; 12 or 16 voice ensemble. Conceived at Cecil Sharp House, where
they met, born at Moseley Folk Festival last year, where they made their debut,
in the past 12 months they've  played festivals; folk clubs and gardens in
The National Open Gardens scheme.. 

Their unique arrangements have brought them many friends in the folk world and a clutch of notable folk
artists including John Tams, Chris While and Julie Matthews, Roy Bailey and
Ray Hearne have all donated songs for the Broomdasher treatment. They love to
involve their audiences too, encouraging them to sing along in chorus numbers
and building a warm atmosphere in venues large and small. Barry Coope said :
" The balance of voices is perfect". Mosley Folk Festival said:"
"what a chilled out performance for the Sunday of Festival" - so come
and hear for yourselves
