Broomdasher are rehearsing for their first London headlining gig at The Harrison next Tuesday (10 October) buoyed by the enthusiastic support of Coope Boyes and Simpson, who they supported at the trio’s last ever London show this week.

Broomdasher will have the wind in their sails at the South Downs Folk Festival this weekend after John Tams’s resounding endorsement of their newly arranged version of two of his songs especially chosen by him for Bognor.

Broomdasher will bring a seafaring treat to the South Downs Folk Festival this month when they sing two songs that have been “gifted” to them by John Tams, especially for their performances at the Festival.
