Another cracker of a concert at The Manor House

The concerts hosted by Friends of The Manor House just get better and better and for the capacity audience on Thursday night it was well worth braving the elements to experience the sound of three very young performers.

Granny’s Attic is the name adopted by three young men, who as school boys in 2009, spent their spare time making music in just that spot – the attic. They liked what they were doing so much and got more adventurous that they began to take things more seriously and eventually all three of them studied music at university. It is well worth Googling them to find out how they tick.

Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne (Melodeon, Concertina, Vocals), George Sansome (Guitar, Vocals), and Lewis Wood (Fiddle, Mandolin, Vocals, Composer and Song writer) would appear to be an ill-assorted trio but from the outset it is apparent that they have an empathy and a style which enthrals the listener and sets the feet tapping. These three young men are all exceptional musicians and fine singers. They play English traditional as well original works composed by Lewis Wood. They have a maturity beyond their years which was greatly appreciated by the cognoscenti in the audience.

It is very likely that Granny’s Attic will appear on the programme again judging by the calls for ‘more’ but in the meantime keep an eye on The Manor House website for other equally enticing concerts. The next one will be on Saturday 8th December presented by Ad Hoc Baroque entitled ‘Christmas with Mr Pepys’. Readings interspersed with Christmas music of the period. This is an afternoon performance 4 – 5pm when mulled wine & mince pies will be included in the ticket price of £14.
