Down in the Valley – Concert

Down in the valley


Saturday 22nd October


Songs of Landscape and Legend, Song-Cycle & Community Project.

Down in the Valley is inspired by the legends, landscapes and characters in Laurie Lee’s book ‘Cider with Rosie’ to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the local poet and authors death, in 2022.

Inspired by the picturesque Slad Valley in the Cotswolds, these six songs composed by Stroud-based singer/songwriter Lisa Fitzgibbon is informed by the life and work of local writer and poet Laurie Lee, whose writing explored our relationship with nature and the importance of community.

Lisa will be joined onstage by her band the PowerFolk Quartet with guest artists Sarah Nicolls on Upside-Down piano and Abbie Lathe on vocals.
Local poet and author Adam Horovitz will be reading excerpts from the book ‘Cider with Rosie’ connected to the songs in the cycle.
