Folk musicians Jess Morgan and Kitty McFarlane will be performing at the South Norfolk Community Pub of the Year, The Burston Crown on December 7.

The pair come to Diss as part of their English Folk Dance and Song Society sponsored East Meets West tour.

Ms Morgan, from Norwich, and Ms McFarlane, from Somerset, are touring across the country from east to west.

Landlady of The Burston Crown Bev Kembery said: “I felt really flattered when the Burston Crown was asked to be the Norfolk hosts for this tour by such important young English folk musicians.”

Ms McFarlane said: “Jess sang the praises of The Burston Crown and their dedication to supporting original musicians, so I am excited and looking forward to playing in a venue that has been in business since 1582 – in Shakespeare’s time.”
