Red Velvet (Les Ray and Deirdre Murphy) perform the songs of the outsiders, the outlaws and the dispossessed from the folk tradition that these times demand (the “red” part), along with a selection of songs of the heart with a jazzy, edgy, bluesy feel (the “velvet” part). The result is a passionate and sensual set.
Deirdre and Les run Red Velvet’s Music Marathon, a hugely successful event held each year in the spring that has over 24 hours of live music from some of the best acoustic musicians in the Cambridge area. So far in 3 years the event has raised over £15,000 for local cancer charities.
Red Velvet will perform in Marquee 3 on Friday night and host the open stage afterwards.
