Oxjam Beeston Takeover 2018, 13:00–13:30 AJAR at Middle Street Resource Centre
AJAR is an acoustic folk trio, playing traditional and contemporary songs, and the occasional tune. Their arrangements feature a variety of instruments, and vocal harmonies. Ally Turner (lead vocals, whistles and guitar) brings influences from the English tradition (particularly the North-East), pop and rock, Juliet Woodin (anglo concertinas, flute, guitar and vocals) from Irish and other Celtic traditions, and Rick Dizon (guitars, banjo, dobro, ukulele) from Americana, all skilfully blended in AJAR!
A review of their set at the 2017 Poppy Folk Club Folk Day said:
"The combination of Ally’s lovely voice, guitar and woodwind playing; Juliet’s harmonies, guitar and concertina accompaniment; and Rick’s guitar and slide guitar playing, have been a hit since the group was formed. Today they showed their versatility on songs ranging from ‘Paddy’s Green Shamrock Shore’ and ‘One Misty Moisty Morning’, to songs by Phil Langran and Dougie MacLean. Very nice!"
