Our Playground Concerts have an active and outdoor focus - we'll get your little ones (and you!) moving and enjoying the fresh air! Plus, after our 45 minute concert, you'll get the chance to meet and improvise with the musicians and make the most of the brilliant play facilities at Highfield. This event will only be cancelled in extreme weather conditions where deemed unsafe - please come prepared for all weather types.

Mishra are a global folk collective with strong roots in U.K folk, out of which they weave a tight web of intricate, Indian-influenced original music that defies definition and has brought them awards recognition since their formation in 2017. Kate Griffin on vocals, banjo, and dobro and Ford Collier on low whistle, calabash/percussion, and guitar are the songwriting partnership behind Mishra, drawing on their unique base of influences that encompasses folk music of the UK and America, Indian classical music, and soul to create a surprisingly accessible sound that audiences instantly connect to. They are joined by Joss Mann Hazell on double bass and John Ball on tabla and santoor, who brings his 20 years of deep study in Indian music to the band.

“An airborne amalgam of cross-continental pollinations” - Songlines Magazine.“Fascinating stuff... I'm really enjoying Mishra's blend” - Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2. “It is a powerful and heady cocktail, bringing together the flavours and ingredients of four different continents, and producing a sumptuous feast for the ears…” - David Auckland, Folk Radio UK.
