Folk music fans can enjoy two gigs at More Music this February.

They are the Hothouse Ceilidh this Saturday (February 8) and young folk duo David Gibb and Elly Lucas on February 15.

Both gigs take place at the Hothouse on Devonshire Road in Morecambe.

The Hothouse Ceilidh welcomes back the Wierdstring Band after their riotous performance at More Music last year, this time supported by Folk to Folk.

Expect a mix of traditional and modern tunes to dance to. A sense of humour is essential and all ages welcome.

Tickets cost £8 (£5 concessions) and can be bought in person or by calling 01524 831 997.

Exciting young folk duo David Gibb and Elly Lucas will play live, performing a mixture of original and traditional folk music.

Their career was kickstarted by a BBC Young Folk Award nomination in 2011 and since then they released two albums to critical acclaim and received extensive national radio play.

The Independent described them as ‘the future of folk’ and they have been highly praised and supported by BBC DJs Mark Radcliffe and Bob Harris.

Support comes from Charlie Galloway. Tickets cost £8 (£5 concessions) in advance and can be bought online at www.moremusic.org.uk/gibb-lucas in person or by calling 01524 831 997. On the night of the gig, tickets will cost £10 (£8 concessions).

Both gigs start at 8pm.
