LANCASHIRE’S favourite folk comedians the Houghton Weavers are returning to Glusburn.

The group will perform their annual concert at the Glusburn Institute Community & Arts Centre on December 7.

The group have been entertaining people across the country for more than 43 years with a unique blend of popular folk music, humour and audience participation.

In their time together, the group have performed thousands of concerts, recorded over 30 albums, and starred in several of their own highly successful BBC radio and TV series.

An Institute spokesman said: “The Houghton Weavers guarantee a wonderful evening of entertainment suitable for all the family.

“Their experience – together with their style and professionalism – ensures, as their motto says, they always `Keep Folk Smiling`.”

The Weavers entertain their audiences with humorous jokes and anecdotes and sing folk songs – from raucous traditional songs to sing-a-long favourites interspersed with beautiful ballads – all done in their own inimitable style.

The spokesman added: “No two evenings in The Houghton Weavers’ company are ever the same, thanks to the second half of their act being given over to the audiences’ requests – preferably for their own songs!

“However this unpredictability can, and invariably does, lead to some interesting results.”

The Houghton Weaver can boast a number one hit in Tasmania with their perennial favourite The Blackpool Belle, a song that also reached number three in New Zealand.
