Full Moon & Music | Tuesday 29 May

Mary Bateman | Traditional Folk

Live music between 7 & 9 pm

Mary Bateman is a traditional folk singer and guitarist based in Wells, Somerset. After having spent some time dabbling in the London open mic arena, soaking up the lengthy Morris traditions and varied folk songs on the Oxford folk scene, and picking up the dockmen's ballads and sea shanties of the Bristol folk circuit, Mary has returned to her home county of Somerset to find out more about the county's rich history of people's song, and to begin work on writing a new collection of songs about the legends of Somerset.

Stylistically, Mary's music is influenced by the highly-decorated Irish Sean-nós tradition, and Mary's sets often feature tradition folk music from Ireland and Scotland, as well as England and even some American folk songs. Major musical influences include Martin Carthy, Nic Jones, Anne Briggs, Niamh Parsons, and Karen Brady.

You can listen to Mary's latest EP 'On the Lonely Water' on SoundCloud
