    Ken Nicol and Wendy Ross live

    Gawsworth Scout Hall, 20 Church Lane, Gawsworth, Macclesfield SK11 9QY

    Out of the acclaimed folk band, Magna Carta, a new duo has been born.

    Ken Nicol and violinist Wendy Ross now combine their talents in a tour-de-force of music, song, storytelling and even some comedy.

    Ken and Wendy will be live on stage at Gawsworth Scout Hall, on Friday 26th July, in a concert to raise funds for The Gawsworth Hub*.

    Ken, whose pedigree includes spells with Steeleye Span, Al Stewart and The Albion Band, is considered one of the UK’s top guitarists.

    Wendy, was classically trained and experienced a wide spectrum of musical genres working with touring bands and philharmonic orchestras before joining Magna Carta.

    Acoustic Magazine said: “The musicianship is staggering, seldom are the compositions less than inspired.”

    Living Tradition wrote: “Rollercoasters of musical virtuosity that spellbind.”

    And legendary folk artist Ralph McTell said to expect: “Humour, great guitar skill and the right drop of humility, and a passion for right, proper, good music.”

    Licensed bar. Tickets £12 can be obtained from Gawsworth Hub.

    *Gawsworth Hub comprises a shop and deli, café and meeting place, run by volunteers for the benefit of the Gawsworth community. Tickets can be obtained from The Hub, 2-4 Longbutts Lane
