Halloween comes to the Union Chapel early with this concert of folk songs dedicated entirely to the subject of werewolves (and werefoxes, and werehounds…). Think 'My Lady's Coach' – an old Devon song about a ghost who travels in a coach made from the bones of her four husbands led by a huge black dog – rather than Michael Jackson's 'Thriller', though there will be some new songs in here too. The highly-regarded performers (including Border bagpiper David Faulkner, vocalists Sarah Owen and Rosa Rebecka, and mandolin player and storyteller Matt Norman) all hail from the South West folk and community arts collective Wren Music, hope to reanimate folklore (especially the werewolf legends recorded by nineteenth-century collector Sabine Baring-Gould) for a generation of Harry Potter and Twilight fans.
