Join The Birdcage for some wonderful live festive folk music in the bar from 7-9pm
The Family Table are Sarah Ballard and Ben Lawrence, two colleagues turned collaborators, who found a kinship in songwriting and music production. Their self produced debut E.P. Conversations Around the Family Table, released in May 2019, is a concept project exploring life, love and family.
Ben spent many years as the lead singer of the band Brokenfor before moving onto solo work as a singer/song-writer. His passion for good storytelling comes across in his thought provoking lyrics. Ben’s influences include Foy Vance, Neil Young & Johnny Cash.
Sarah, a multi-instrumentalist, has a vast musical background – from string quartets to bands and community choirs. She brings her love of folky violins and flutes mixed with Eva Cassidy influences.
Together, their music weaves stories to life, mixing a rich tapestry of folk sounds with heartfelt lyrics.
