Act 1: Noah’s Cape

Noah’s Cape are a folk trio hailing from the border of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire featuring Linda, Marian and Mark. Three lead singers take turns to lead or harmonise all in the service of delivering their best version of the song.

Capably led by Linda Watkins on vocals and various stringed instruments, it also features Marian Wedley on vocals, guitar, harmonica and whistles and Mark Niel on guitar, vocals and occasionally cajon.

Noah’s Cape deliver their unique brand of Folkie-tainment featuring original songs, cover versions of acoustic classics and traditional folk songs, all sprinkled with poetic wit as Mark is Poet Laureate of his hometown. Their trademark three-part harmonies are constant crowd pleasers and their ever-changing instrumentation means there is practically a different sound to every song.

Stony Stratford Mummers

Stony Stratford Mummers was formed when a group of dedicated folkies decided that they would entertain those in the local hostelries at Christmas time. A group of friends went round the pubs singing Christmas Carols and one year late they decided to perform a Mummers play. It was in the year 1973 that Stony Stratford Mummers was born. Apart from a one year break in the late 1980’s Stony Mummers have performed every year since its inception. Their performance schedule in the winter always starts when the town holds its annual ‘Switching on of the Lights’ celebration which heralds the start of the winter festivities at the end of November or beginning of December.
