About The Artists
Uncommon Folk making uncommonly good music – five musicians performing original and traditional songs and tunes on a wide variety of instruments.
Formed in 2011 Stampita is a local band based in Taunton, Somerset. They perform a unique blend of original, traditional and contemporary material with a line up which includes bouzouki, mandolin, bass guitar, flute, rock steady percussion and a blend of vocals. Their wide ranging repertoire is centred upon the compositions of in-band singer-songwriter Will Cann. Their songs and instrumentals showcase their collective talent and the resulting sound is a vibrant, multi-layered blend of complex rhythms, haunting harmonies and soulful singing.
Their musical references span the centuries, from medieval melodies, through battle cries of Stuart Rebellion to contemporary folk songs of love, loss and hope restored.
This is all reflected in the meaning of our name – a Stampita is a rhythmic instrumental composition that accompanied a poem, dating back to the 14th Century.
A pure folk music feast for any folk music lover and a performance you will enjoy.
Southern Belle capture the soul of American Old Time music with their magical Banjo & Fiddle duets and offers a unique listening experience to this style of folk music. In fact, artists from Southern Belle sound tested our venue through a folk session they held at CICCIC and sound great and have a optimistic and friendly performance.
So be the first to enjoy the best of folk music at Taunton’s most popular venue for great music and atmosphere at CICCIC’s candle lit Memorial Hall on Paul Street.
Doors open at 7.30pm with kick off around 8.00pm.
