Inspired by the Carter Family, Moondog, Harry Partch and the Elliotts of Birtley, New Wired Folk is our fourth evening of challenging roots and folk musics.
Featuring Drag City recording artist and Will Oldham collaborator Alasdair Roberts, Emily Portman (back by overwhelming demand), Swedish electro-folk rounds from Nathalie Stern and Bridie Jackson.
“While there are echoes of Incredible String Band’s motley eclecticism, the pained isolation of Nick Drake, and British traditional music, this music is original in every way” – BBC
