Goat Girl

Wainsgate Music is delighted and very excited to welcome the extraordinary Goat Girl to the Chapel. Often described as post-punk, their music is so much more – effortlessly blending rock, folk, synth-pop and more into their highly approachable socio-political songs which are delivered with heaps of style, wit and energy.

York Guitar Quartet

The Quartet currently offers an inspiring and unusual repertoire which blends originals and arrangements of baroque, classical, romantic and twentieth century music. The twenty first century is already well represented. A unique mixture of instruments provides a range of five octaves, allowing the group access to music normally unavailable to the solo guitar or other ensembles.
