Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Crook is to play a house-concert at St Cuthbert’s House in Seahouses tomorrow at 7.30pm.

Jennifer’s new album Carnforth Station – recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios – has just been released to critical acclaim, and has already been included in The Telegraph’s Best Folk Music Albums of 2014.

Jennifer’s songwriting draws on her Americana influences, but remains undeniably English in its story-telling.

In a career that has led her from the BBC Young Tradition Award to touring with Snow Patrol, Jennifer has earned a reputation as an outstanding harp player as well as an acclaimed singer, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist.

She’s been described as ‘a class act’ on BBC Radio 2 and will appear at St Cuthbert’s House with sought-after session musician and long-time collaborator Mike Cosgrave.

Host Jill Sutheran said: “Jennifer is an established and well-respected musician, and we’re delighted that she’s coming to play for us in Seahouses.

“She’s never played in this part of the country apparently, so this is a rare chance for a Northumberland audience to see her playing live. We can’t wait!”

Tickets for the concert cost £10 and are available by calling 01665 720456. Or visit www.stcuthbertshouse.com
