Renowned 'hurdy-gurdy' folk musician to perform in Burnham-On-Sea

A bona fide 'hurdy-gurdy man' will be performing at Burnham's Ritz Acoustic Club this Thursday (August 15th).

Damian Clarke, an original member of renowned folk rock band Pressgang, delivers traditional music on hurdy-gurdy and hammer dulcimer and also sings unaccompanied.

"His aim is to take trad music out of the folk arena and inspire a far wider audience, especially youngsters," Acoustic Club Chairman Rob Brown told

"In doing so, he has toured 12 countries, performed on TV, in theatres and at many festivals and street fairs."

"Damian's a brilliant musician and also great fun. It should be a tremendous evening."

Doors open at 8pm and entry will cost £4 per person on the door.
