PEDAL FOLK   following the route of 'In Pursuit of Spring'.
Pedal Folk are a musical collective who power their journeys from gig to gig purely by bike. Folk musicians Robin Grey and Tim Graham spearheaded the project that hit the road last year in order to promote sustainable touring and make more out of the time spent travelling between performances. They completed two tours in 2013 covering just under 200 miles accompanied by Galway born fiddler Katie Stone-Lonergan. This April they undertook their largest tour yet travelling from London to the Quantocks in the well worn tyre tracks of Edward Thomas that he recounted in 'In Pursuit of Spring'.

This May they are heading on a return journey from Bath to Oxford, performing music written and inspired by Thomas' work as well as folk songs and tunes that were collected in the counties he passed through.
"Our tour dates are as follows:


31st - The Story Museum - OXFORD

“What an incredible evening. Edward Thomas would have loved it!”
