Due to the on-going concerns surrounding the coronavirus and taking into consideration the health and well-being of our audience members and key stakeholders, we have decided that it is important to postpone all public activity at The HopBarn until the autumn period when we hope that the threat of the virus will have subsided


For those who have bought tickets to any of our forthcoming programmed music events, you will of course be refunded the full cost of the ticket. 


On behalf of The HopBarn, we value the support and patronage of everyone who has attended or was about to attend an event at this rural arts venue and recognise that without such dedicated support, we could not operate as we have been doing. 


For the musicians who have recently played or were about to play, this is a devastating time for them as future gigs and music tours have been cancelled, leaving them suddenly without an expected yearly income. The impact will be widespread although we hope that this is just temporary and that we can host the music events that have already been programmed for the autumn season. 


Thank you once again for your understanding in this situation and we look forward to welcoming you back at The HopBarn once this unsettled period has passed. 


With Best Wishes on behalf of The HopBarn

For all events, tickets can be purchased online via Eventbrite although a booking fee will be added by Eventbrite.
If you would like to purchase tickets without the booking fee, tickets can be bought by: 
  1.  In Person at Burley's, 1A Market Place Southwell NG25 0HE
  2.  Contacting info@thehopbarn.org.uk whereby tickets can be purchased via cheque or BACs transfer 
Access requirements: please contact us at info@thehopbarn.org.uk if you have any special access needs

Edgelarks - POSTPONED

Edgelarks (Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin) embark on another tour of the unusual and adventurous

£14 (Advanced) £16 (on the door)

Combining exquisite folk with influences as diverse as blues, Indian classical, and beatboxing, the BBC Folk Award winners are taking their show to some equally special places. 

The pair take their strong roots sound, mixing original song-writing with stomping beatbox harmonica, soaring fiddle and vocal harmonies, running wilder with each repeat play. 

A busy collaborative period has included work as part of the Gigspanner Big Band (featuring members of Bellowhead and Steeleye Span); and performing at BBC Radio Two’s Festival In A Day to a Hyde Park crowd of 50,000 – supporting Kylie Minogue! 

They are now leaving the beaten track firmly behind them, and would love you to join them for this celebration of hidden gems, extraordinary venues, and uncommon concerts. 

“Subtle, atmospheric and bravely original” - The Guardian. 

“Extraordinary...I was blown away by them!” – Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music

Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar - POSTPONED

Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar joined forces in 2011 and have become an important duo on the British Folk Music Scene.

£13 (Advanced) £15 (on the door)

Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar joined forces in 2011. Combining Russell’s powerful vocals and driving guitar style with Algar’s All-Ireland winning fiddle playing, the duo have become one of the most sought after acts on the British folk scene.

In 2013 the pair won the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award before going on to win the Horizon Award for best breakthrough act from the same source in 2014. In 2015, they were nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Best Duo category.

Having toured extensively in the UK for five years, as well as in Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands, Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar have released 3 studio albums.

“One of the pleasures of live music of course, is witnessing the acts interactions with one another and relationships they build with the audience. Greg and Ciaran are very funny and in a few short years this humour seems to have shifted from jokes and puns to an almost 'Reeves and Mortimer' type surrealism. Greg has a dry, acerbic sense of humour whereas Ciaran is more anarchic and uncontrolled. An added twist is that at times it is difficult to tell whether they are on the verge of 'falling out' on stage as Greg gives his adult 'enough is enough' look, which just seems to incite Ciaran to further errant behaviour.” Paul Jackson for Fatea

£13 (Advanced) £15 (on the door)

PLUMHALL are Michelle Plum and Nick B Hall, a feisty Yorkshire based duo whose award winning self-penned songs are already winning them plaudits from the likes of R2 Magazine (4 stars), Miles Hunt (The Wonder Stuff), Steve Knightley (Show of Hands) and many more. 

The pair deliver guitar and harmony driven textures of folk, Americana and pop, and have have been wowing audiences on the live acoustic circuit in the UK. Winners of the Yorkshire Gig Guide Outstanding Songwriters award 2014, PLUMHALL were recently joined on stage by Bob Dylan's legendary guitarist Larry Campbell for a performance of Senor (Tales of Yankee Power) at the BBC Radio 2 award winning folk club The Black Swan in York. PLUMHALL's debut album THUNDERCLOUD was released on 1st September 2014 through Splid Records and Proper Distribution, and is already BBC radio playlisted. The album has just been hailed one of The Guardian and Observer's Hidden Gems of 2014. Plans to tour Canada, the US and South Africa are in the pipeline.

Michelle Plum is a former member of Chumbawamba, Waking the Witch and The Accidental Tourists, and in her own right has supported Aimee Mann, Capercaillie, Ralph McTell, Nerina Pallot, Texas and Shane MacGowan to name but a few. She also provided guest vocals for Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts' UK spring 2013 tour. More recently, Michelle's other session work has taken her on tour all over Europe.

Nick B Hall has been a member of the Hall Brothers band nearly all his life, and has supported Fairport Convention, Hugh Cornwell, Show of Hands, Kate Rusby, Glenn Tilbrook plus many more. He also provided session guitar for Magna Carta on their 2010 South African tour. More recently, Nick appeared as a musician in the Christmas 2015 episodes of Coronation Street.

"The heavens open and talent pours out. A superduo with....a real sense of passion and attack"


“Their chemistry as a duo makes them special... with sumptuous vocal harmonies and telepathic guitar interactions. Michelle is one of the UK’s leading chanteuses... Nick is a consummate storyteller, powerful vocalist and exceptional guitarist.”
