Looma -13th Jan 2023

From the swamps of Louisiana to the Swedish midnight sun! Bromyard’s January Folk at the Falcon welcomes Looma.

Three parts English, one part Orkney, Looma play acoustic roots and folk music from the swamps of Louisiana to the Swedish midnight sun, and everywhere in between.

Bringing together folk, blues, Cajun, bluegrass and country traditions as well as original songs, Looma mix driving energy with strong vocals and foot-tapping tunes.

Looma are:

Liz Logie  — Piano Accordion and percussion
Mark Theobald — Harmonica, Ukelele, Vocals
Bob Gilmour-Evans — Guitar, Vocals
Tim Garland Cittern  — Fiddle, Vocals

Liz is an Orcadian who has played the accordion since she was ten, being inspired to play by her father, a well-known Orkney accordion player.  Mark was a National Harmonica League ‘Player of the Year’ in 2013 and 2014, playing Irish and blues music.  Bob has been performing and writing songs since his youth but feels he is now moving into his prime years. He has recorded several albums and many other artists have covered his songs.

Tim has been performing traditional and self-penned material for over thirty years, both as a founder member of Midlands-based radical folk group Fieldwork and with Kasutima Ceilidh band, playing nationally at clubs, festivals and on national and local radio. He has also performed regularly as a solo artist and in a duo with Indian percussionist Nitin Odedra. He has made five albums with Fieldwork and two solo albums.

Support – John Bloor and Phil Mitchell

John nd Phil are Bromyard’s own John Bloor and Phil Marshall.  Phil and John have been regulars at The Falcon sessions for years (almost for ever!). Their repertoire includes acoustic music from most eras,  from traditional folk through to music from the 1990s. Carefully considered guitar accompaniments and vocal harmonies are their hallmark.
