|A.G. & KATE|
Tuesday 4th March 2003 ~ £4.00
It was A.G. & Kate who launched the Heart Of Lincolnshire Club at its Woodhall venue back in 2000, since then we have invited them back on each of their following tours. Gigs such as these help support the duo's unique and invaluable mission to prisons around the UK and North America.
A.G. & Kate are a duo from Holland, whose infectious music, with folk-styled vocals and old-time country instrumentals have thrilled thousands on both sides of the Atlantic. Having heard them performing 'live in the studio' on Mick Smith's Country music programme early in 1999, we felt that their music which encompasses a variety of styles, including country, bluegrass, folk & Gospel would appeal to our audience. They play a variety of traditional instruments including 5 string banjo, autoharp and dulcimer in addition to guitars.
Little did we realise the musical pedigree of the act we had booked for our little rural folk club, following that radio show! They have appeared at a number of major music festivals in the UK, including the Peterborough Country Music Festival, the Greenbelt Christian Festival & the Wembley Country Music Festival, & toured as far north as the Shetland Islands. A.G. & Kate also regularly complete 6 month tours of the USA. They have appeared at the Ozark Folk Centre in Mountain View, Arkansas, recording their latest CD 'Live in Mountain View, Arkansas'. They have also appeared at most of the big bluegrass festivals in the USA, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville & Ernest Tubb's Midnight Jamboree. During one of their programs in a high security prison in West Virginia, they were presented with a Mountain Dulcimer, made by Rick Ellison one of the inmates as a token of appreciation, it has been a wonderful addition to their other instruments.
Starting their musical career in 1972, this amazing duo have been on the road full time since 1976, during this time they have recorded over 20 albums and reached out to thousands in all walks of life and many different circumstances.
At times we all think "if there was only something I could do that would help change and improve the world I live in" ~ few have the courage to make such a commitment as A.G. & Kate ~ but by coming along and supporting their gigs you can do a little help this remarkable pair make this world a better place!
