Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith
Sunday 6 October, 3pm-4.30pm
£10 (+ booking fee)
A special trailblazer event before the start of
Manchester Folk Festival
Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith are one of the finest duos to have emerged onto the British folk and acoustic scene in recent years. The duo’s live performances are a celebration of traditional music, including a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice, as well as the occasional love song.
Their shows manage to be both hard hitting and uplifting, and it is this ability that justifies their reputation as two of the most exciting musicians and social commentators on the scene.
This is the perfect pairing of artist and location: insightful, empathetic social commentary in the national museum of democracy.
People's History Museum is a fascinating, free entry museum, open 10am-5pm daily. Be sure to arrive early enough to visit: it won't disappoint.
All ages welcome
