ken wilson & jim mcfarland

Ken is one of the wonderful Wilsons, our festival Patrons, and a fine singer in his own right, with a strong repertoire of traditional and contemporary songs. Jim is a lovely singer from Derry, known for a repertoire collected from Irish source singers. 

In 2013, they were asked to tour Ireland performing their mix of Irish and English traditional songs. Since then, they have appeared at a number of clubs and festivals in both Ireland and the UK - we're delighted to welcome them back to Hartlepool.
