Benny Graham & Chuck Fleming

28 February 2015

There's not much to say about these two that hasn't already been said.  Benny has one of the finest voices in the country - never mind the North East - and Chuck, originally a Scot but now a naturalised Geordie (although you'd never know it!) is one of the foremost fiddle players on the folk scene.  Great singing, great music and great craic!No need to book, just pay on the door!
