The Wilderness Yet

On Sunday 11th December, the Poppy Folk Club brings you The Wilderness Yet in concert at Poppy and Pint!Their show “Turn The Year Round” features secular re-writes of classic carols and carefully arranged seasonal favourites.

The Wilderness Yet combines the acclaimed talents of folksinger Rosie Hodgson, traditional fiddler Rowan Piggott, and guitarist-flautist Philippe Barnes. Independently, they have earned audiences’ esteem as consummate musicians; together, they weave an eclectic tapestry of traditional and original songs and tunes; from a cappella three-part harmonies to luscious instrumental arrangements. With a voice that brings “a ruby-richness to lyrics new and old” (Folk Radio UK), it is no surprise that Rosie has been a finalist for the BBC Young Folk Award. Rosie’s own songs are heavily influenced by the English tradition and her love of literature and the environment.

Rowan is himself a fine singer with a “deep understanding and feel for tradition” (FolkWords). He is known for his fiddle- playing with Georgia Lewis and The Songhive Project. The winner of the ‘Future of Young Folk Award’ at Bromyard Folk Festival, he recently featured on the cover of The Living Tradition after releasing his solo album Mountscribe.

Philippe is well-known on the folk scene as an exceptional flautist and guitarist! Since completing an MA in Irish Music Performance at University of Limerick, Philippe has toured with the David Munnelly Band, All Jigged Out, Dizraeli and the Small Gods and Crossharbour (alongside Rosie!). As a session musician he appears regularly on film/tv soundtracks.
