Folk heroes want you to celebrate their victory
AWARD-WINNING folk duo Brendan Power and Tim Edey want you to help them celebrate.
The pair were named best duo at the BBC Radio Two Folk Awards earlier this year – and Tim also took the musician of the year title.
Now they plan to share their success with a Folk Awards Celebration Show at Canterbury's Westgate Hall on Saturday May 12.
Brendan, from Faversham, and Tim, from Thanet, only teamed up 18 months ago. This will be their first gig in Kent since receiving the awards.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the Westgate Community Trust, which is converting the hall – once threatened with demolition by the city council – into a community cinema.
Harmonica player Brendan, who was born in New Zealand but adopted Canterbury as his home ten years ago, is a member of the trust.
He said: "It is important to cherish this space."
Multi-instrumentalist Tim lives in Broadstairs but was born in Canterbury.
The pair bounce off each other, improvising as they draw on musical traditions ranging from the blues and Celtic to pop.
Brendan said: "We even surprise ourselves sometimes."
Tim said: "Our sound is real, hands-on which touches the heart. Perhaps in difficult times people need authenticity."
The pair's new CD, Wriggle and Writhe, will be on sale at the concert.
A DVD called Live At The Westgate Hall, will be produced on the night with interviews and chord sheets added later.
Tickets cost £9 plus £1.15 booking fee (or £12 on the door) from www.timedeyandbrendan power.eventbrite.co.uk Doors open 7pm.
