THE MUSIC TENT
Hosted by Paul Foot! Oh yes, him, yep that awesome one. We welcome Paul back with open arms to get stuck into introducing this laverly lot all carefully selected for you by Irregular Folks from years of music love...
- Yorkston Thorne & Khan - Like a supergroup dream come true, James Yorkston (Domino Records), John Thorne's (Lamb) and Suhail Yusef Khan – fusing alt folk, jazz double bass and Indian classical sounds.
- GO DARK - Flying over especially from the US to play. You will be taken in to an exhilarating electronic computer game-like mission, with a performance and vocal dexteritory so powerful you'll never be the same again. It's bonkers!
- Laura J Martin - A strange mix of flute, samples, live instruments and quirky vocals create an awsome Grimms Fairytale-like journey that's been hijacked by all the craziest characters from Where the Wild Things Are.
- Oly Ralfe - A beautifully crafted piano soundtrack to "A Fieldguide to Reality" by Joanna Kavenna. Sometimes it's just wonderful to strip things right back down to the purity of a beautifully crafted mellow instrumental
- Dead Rat Orchestra - "Adventurers adrift in a sea of sound and possibility, plucking textures and melodies to craft their idiosyncratic vision of what music and performance can be." We simply cannot top that description!
- Rozi Plain - Expect a uniquely rich textured multi-instrumental indie sound - they've a bewildering amount of instruments! Rozi is also in This Is the Kit, as well as contributing music to Francoise and the Atlas mountains and Rahael Dadd (another Irregular Folks alumni!).
- Hannah Bruce - A fusion of electronic sounds with indie guitar and a voice like a meeting between a dark and dusty Cat Power and PJ Harvey from a midnight storybook.
- Jack Cheshire - A fascinating mix of psychedelic indie and jazz subtley and oh so cleverly weaved in.
Created by David Bramwell - the man behind the aweome Sing-a-long-a-Wickerman, The Catalyst Club and Cheekie Guides as well as many many other bonkers creations. We very proudly welcome him back!
