Our much-loved local folk group Stooshie have been selected as the opening music event of 2024. The band members, Simon O’Hare, Dave Muir, Rachel Swift, Pete Leeson, are all local, and Stooshie is fast gaining a reputation in Cumbria and beyond. The group describe their music as rooted in folk but with a modern twist. Two main instrumental line-ups allow them to mix up traditional songs and beautiful ballads, to sit alongside the fast and furious stonkers that have the audience up on their feet.
Stooshie have played at nearly all the major festivals in the area (including Kendal Calling, Solfest, Sedbergh and Keswick Mountain Festival), as well as venues such as The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal, The Stage in Gateshead, Clitheroe’s The Grand as well as Keswick’s own Theatre by the Lake. The band play their own material as well as arrangements of other group’s numbers. Influences include The Peatbog Faeries, The Urban Folk Quartet as well as Altan and the wonderful Michael McGoldrick.
