Hardy used the Wantage and Oxford area as the setting for Jude the Obscure. Hardy was also a fiddle player, from a family of musicians.

This performance features readings from Hardy's poems, short stories and extracts from his novels, as well as music from the Hardy family manuscripts and folk songs from Dorset

This is a fund raising event for the Vale & Downland Museum, Church Street, Wantage, OX12 8BL and is part of the Wantage Summer Festival.

Kadia Gig on April 28

With support from the White Horse Whisperers.

KadiaThe glorious Kadia return to Cornerstone for a bar gig following the annual Folk Weekend: Oxford festival.

Kadia first performed at our open mic night two years ago and brought the audience to their feet with their mix of traditional folk music, Irish session tunes, original material and some contemporary covers. Their creative arrangements and modern take on pop music have gained plaudits and the warmth, humour and energy of their performances has won them fans beyond their Dorset home.

Their last bar gig here was packed and since then their debut album East of Alexandria has made it to the Telegraph’s 2015 Folk Album of the Year list.

An Evening with Dean Friedman

  The Fleur De Lys, East Hagbourne presents:

 An evening with Dean Friedman


 Wednesday 10th May 2017 8.30pm

 Tickets £25

 Dean first came to notice with the top 20 chart single Ariel. Quirky and uncategorizable the song tells the story of a free spirited, pot smoking, vegetarian Jewish girl in a peasant blouse who lived as  the lyric goes “….way on the other side of the Hudson." 

 This was followed by the album “Well, Well” Said the Rocking Chair” and the now classic hit single Lucky Stars, a duet performed with singer Denise Marsa. The single reached no 1 in the UK charts  and was followed by hits Lydia, Rocking Chair, McDonalds Girl and Woman of Mine 


 Deans consummate song writing and performances have earned him a loyal international following.
