BBC Radio 2 Folk Club of the Year 2010, The Magpie’s Nest, has very kindly invited us down to their HQ for an evening of Northwest-based folk-influenced acts – plus a very sneaky headline slot from the wonderful cajun band, Mama Rosin, who are currently on tour.
So trotting down to the other end of the country will be:
… ‘The singer’s vocal acrobatics evoke Tim Buckley – precise, pure and leaping to graceful falsetto and back with ease, holding notes for aeons amid elegant bursts of mandolin. The crowd are gently rapt with this engaging display of proficiency, laying the foundations nicely for the final act.’ http://www.myspace.com/ottersgear
‘Eliza And The Bear’, an enchanting original poem by Liverpool poet, Eleanor Rees, featuring a live harp score composed by Rebecca Sharp and spoken word by performance artist, Cathy Butterworth http://www.saltpublishing.com/writers/profile.php?recordID=209953
Rebecca Sharp: magical spoken word/poetry and harp compositions.
‘fascinatingly complex, audacious and at times brain-poppingly clever work’ – Glasgow Herald
Tickets are £6 in advance (from http://www.themagpiesnest.co.uk/) or £8 otd.
