Queens Head hosts great folk music

Melodica, Melody and Me – a six-piece band from South London who blend together folk, reggae, and latino harmonies to create something rather really special – will be at the Queens Head in Belper on Friday night.

They are being supported by Belper’s own David Gibb and Elly Lucas and the event is being promoted by another Derbyshire brand Harepin Records. Find out more about them at  http://www.hairpinrecords.co.uk

This is a review of Melodica, Melody and Me from the Observer Music Monthly so expect a great night of music. “Incredibly beautiful, with harmonies and rich instrumentation that make you want to dance and cry at the same time.”
