Folk act to perform in Cheddar

PUBLISHED: 20:00 07 November 2017




A prominent British folk act will perform a special one-off show in Cheddar.

Magenta were a prominent act on the folk scene in the 1970s and 1980s and were residents at the Bell Folk Club in Banwell from 1978 until its closure in 1985.

The band reunited in 2009 and again last year to host two concerts in Weston and again this year to raise money for charity.

The band members have been working on their latest album and will launch it at their concert next month.

Let It fall will be Magenta’s fifth album and will include seven original songs and other material.

The first three albums were issued on vinyl between 1978 and 1983 and the fourth was recorded for a special charity concert at Weston’s Playhouse Theatre in 2011.

Magenta will be at Cheddar Village Hall, in Church Street on November 11 at 7pm.

Tickets, priced £10, are available from Arthur on 01934 732095 or Mervyn on 07970 100252.
