Musicians bring new line-up to Alstonefield

Award-winning Bella Gaffney (guitar, vocals) and acclaimed mandolin player Polly Bolton came together last year, fusing Celtic folk with bluegrass in an exciting new collaboration. 

Recently joined by cellist Sarah Smout and fiddler Holly Brandon for 2019, this all-female four-piece – Bella, Polly and The Magpies – is already establishing a fearsome reputation for their glittering live shows, onstage rapport and genre-busting original and traditional material. 

The band has been exceptionally well received so far, and over the last year they have performed at Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, Wickham Festival, Towersey and many more.  

You can see them at Alstonefield Village Hall on September 14, at 8pm.
