Brighton-based record label Woodland Recordings have a reputation for releasing haunting, intense, spectral folk with a distinctly British sound, influenced by the cosmic folk of the late-sixties, Sarah Records, and the Basement Tapes.

They’ve worked with and released material by Sons of Noel and Adrian, Mary Hampton, Men Daimler and Hamilton Yarns.

Tonight, the Star & Shadow present three helpings of beautifully handmade alt-folk from:


Birdengine project a trinket world through a distorted folklore lens – hybrids of animal and human slipping off the tongue with mystical economy, feeding the imagination in half shadows. Strange narratives, an alchemic voice and Spanish tunings.


Distinctive, spellbinding voice, the aural equivalent of one of those remarkable slow motion films of a bird in flight, alights on a gently rippling accompaniment that plucks and strums…


Lo-fi pop acoustica, influenced by as much by Postcard Records as the Harry Smith Anthology.


Tickets are £5 members / £6 non-members.
