Dunton Folk - Life and Times

Life and Times are Graeme Meek (Guitar, Bouzouki, Vocals) and Barry Goodman (Melodeons, English Concertina, Vocals). Their music has taken them to most of the major folk festivals in England, and to folk clubs from Southampton to Hartlepool, Norwich to Bridgwater (and most places in between!). In recent years they have been resident performers at Hitchin Folk Club, itself established over 40 years! Life & Times won the FATEA Tradition 09 Award which…
“…is presented to the act that have traditional folk at the root of their sound and use it to inspire new songs, tunes and arrangements.”

Life and Times’ music has been featured on both national radio and local radio stations around Britain, and they recently recorded the title music for the award-nominated film The Bedfordshire Clanger. Graeme’s songs have been taken up by a number of other singers, including John Kirkpatrick and Carolyn Robson, while Barry’s tune, “Four Up” appears on Ashley Hutchings’ Grandson of Morris On. Life and Times CDs include Charivari, Marston Vale and Where the Working Boats Went.


An insight in music, song and pictures into the little-known but fascinating characters, industries and customs of the county of Bedfordshire. Did you know that midsummer bonfires were once lit on Dunstable Downs? Do you know why Charles Wells gave up a promising career at sea to start his famous brewery? Or that mineral water was once produced in the town of Flitwick, and a highwayman called Henry Claydon once lived there? With Life and Times’ performance of songs about Bedfordshire stories, customs and legends you will be informed, enlightened and entertained. Who knows..? You might even want to go there!

Ticket info £10 per ticket. Accompanied Under 16s free.
