The superb singing and songwriting talents of Manchester-based Zoe Kyoti will be highlighted in the next concert at Wainsgate Chapel, Hebden Bridge, on Sunday, May 15.

Zoe’s unique brand of folk carries influences of her Anglo, Austrian, Greek and Armenian heritage. She is well-known for her work with swing acoustic trio The Magic Beans and for her appearances with songstress Jessica Hoop, most recently on the album ‘Undress’.

For the concert, which will feature songs taken from her latest album ‘Wishbone’, Zoe will be joined by three of the most versatile musicians in the north of England - all of whom are making return visits to Hebden Bridge.

They are guitarist Stuart McCallum, a leading light in The Cinematic Orchestra, fiddle player and experienced live performer Emma Sweeney and bassist, composer and arranger Matt Owens.

The concert is part of Hebden Folk Roots Festival.
