About this event

After years of playing together on the Oxford session scene and in folk clubs, The Oakstone Trio came together in early 2022 for Folk Weekend: Oxford. 

Louis Thurman (melodeons, vocals), Mitch Keely (guitar, vocals), and Joshua Newman (fiddle, viola, vocals) combine a nuanced, improvisatory approach to tunes with energy and warmth, allowing seldom-heard tunes to escape old manuscripts and giving well-loved session tunes the space to find new directions. They pair new compositions with old tunes and solo ballads with harmony chorus songs. 

Please note: seating is limited and will only be available to those with pre-booked tickets. Standing room will be available within the safe capacity level for the space. We expect this event to be very popular.  At times access to Blackwell Hall may be controlled to enable all visitors to enjoy the event safely.
