Acclaimed musicians Ross Ainslie and Ali Hutton will perform in Belper, showing why they were nominated for honours at the 2018 Radio 2 Folk Awards.

They scooped duo of the year at the 2017 awards and were on the shortlist for the same honour at this week’s ceremony with Ross also being among the finalists for musician of the year.

Their second album Symbiosis II is due out on April 20 and they will showcase selections from the upcoming release when they play at the Old King’s Head, Belper on April 13.

Jenn Butterworth, one of the foremost folk guitarists on the UK acoustic music scene, will also be on the bill.
