CROW PUPPETS / 8pm

Crow Puppets are a Devon based female duo who perform homespun folk. They sing close harmonies and blend a hotchpotch of instruments, weaving mysterious imagery and tender lyrics.
Their self released album ‘Whispering Hills, Tangled Hair’ was recorded in a cabin in Cornwall over two days by Nick Marshall (guitarist with Martha Tilston), and has been described by Folk Radio UK as an “assured and confident debut album focused on an evocative, contemporary folk sound that clearly inspires. One to watch, definitely.”
Both women have their own distinctive sound and working together has given rise to an exciting contrast of songwriting, which cultivates memories of forgotten landscapes and rugged terrain.

The surprising thing is that he’s also Grade 8 on the violin, and that that turns out to be relevant, too.

DROMERDARY / 8pm

This mysterious coming together of Richard'Velvet Chestnut' Hughes, lost troubadour from a deserted circus, and Hungarian percussionist Adam Pettick is very likely to conjure up the drifting smoke of carousing campfires as well as the stark shadows of forbidding forests. It certainly will not give you the hump.
