Friday Live: Wednesday's Wolves + support from Velvet Circus

Wednesday's Wolves are Chrissy Renker and Ysabelle Durant, a female contemporary folk duo from Oxfordshire. Both third culture kids, they met while at school in Sri Lanka although their musical collaboration didn't start until they had both finished University. They first started playing and writing original material together in 2013. Since forming the band they have been playing at venues around the UK, mainly London and Oxfordshire, and have performed on the same bill as Amber Run, Seafret, Flyte, Beth Rowley, and Iain Archer. In 2017 their song "Off This Earth" was played on BBC Radio 1 by DJ Huw Stephens who went on to select it as his BBC Introducing Tip Of The Week. They were also invited to perform at BBC Music Introducing Hosts Amplify 2017 in London. 

Their songs use simple guitar riffs and vocal harmonies combined with percussive instruments such as cajon and glockenspiel to create emotive and evocative music, usually with a melancholic edge. 

“…Chrissy and Ysabelle each have vocal textures reminiscent of a mix of Joan Baez and Natalie Merchant, and together are able to create some incredible harmonies”
- Top Five Records 2014

Saturday Shenanigans: Mr Tea And The Minions

Originally a dictatorship formed by the cunning Mr Tea, the Minions have since overthrown him and their chaos has brought forth a musical democracy where cheekiness, fun and a love for the music bind the band together into one massive colorful explosion!

They’re on a mission to ignite crazy dancing by audiences everywhere, with their brand of Gypsy flavoured party music to get their audience stirred into a big bouncing frenzy of fun! A hugely popular festival band, they have played raucous gigs at festivals including Glastonbury, Boomtown, WOMAD, Nozstock, Goulash Disko (Croatia), among many others. September 2016 saw the release of their debut album, ‘Tea Your Mind’.

The Minions play their own unique take on high energy Balkan party music – combining Gypsy flavoured Ska, Dub and Swing with an infusion of soulful melodies, cheeky Eastern riffs and booming beats and bass to put a smile on your face and your knees up past your ears!

“The Minions seamlessly weave Balkan Beats with ska, dub and swing to create a bouncing set. It’s impossible not to get involved.”
The Independent

April's Lineup:

Opener: Costas Lukaris

Costas Lukaris has been a firm favourite on the South Wales comedy circuit for the last four years.  A finalist in the 2018 Welsh Unsigned Stand-up Award, the enigmatic funnyman mostly stays in and watches TV, but sometimes does stand-up comedy when he remembers to.  He is a firm favourite with audiences, although his mother describes his act as 'not everybody's cup of tea'.  She's wrong, of course. 'We are all aware this unique comedy mind doesn't get the recognition he deserves' Llandaff Comedy Club 

Headliner: Col Howarth

Col packs an energetic punch, bringing skewed observations wrapped up in a lively set packed with sharp one-liners and anecdotes that have audiences laughing from start to end. Col debuted his new show GUBBINS at the Leicester Comedy Festival earlier this year and is bringing an abridged version to The Globe in April. 'Razor sharp, inventive and surprising all at once. Totally hilarious.' Nolton Comedy Corner. 'Witty and intelligent, hilarious and cheeky with proper laugh out loud gags.' FringeReviews.co.uk

Saturday Shenanigans: Modou Ndiaye

Modou Ndiaye is a virtuoso kora player, vocalist, drummer and percussionist with a superb repertoire of rhythms fusing together traditional and modern beats. He plays a variety of West African instruments ranging from djembe, sabar, calabash and talking drum to his leading instrument –the 22 stringed kora (West African Harp). Modou is a member of the famous Cissokho family of Griot musicians and oral historians from the Cassamance region of Southern Senegal.  A Griot or 'Jali' is a West African historian, advisor, arbitrator, praise singer, story-teller and entertainer. Essentially these musicians were walking history books, preserving their ancient stories and traditions through song. Their inherited traditions were passed down through the generations.

His music is the perfect balance of beautiful yet powerful harmonies with the gentle yet lively tones of the kora, bass guitar, calabash, djembe and a variety of African percussion instruments, uniting traditional and modern sounds that leave you invigorated and inspired!

Modou’s music has also been in demand from the global film industry.  Commissioned by Warner Brothers in 2006, his djembe playing can be heard in the soundtrack of the blockbuster ‘Blood Diamond’.

In 2008, at the request of Brian Elsley, Modou's kora playing featured on the teenage cult series ‘Skins’. 

In 2015 Modou worked with William Goodchild, William composes and produces music for film and television and has scored for the major broadcasters including BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, PBS, National Geographic international, Discovery international and Animal planet. Modou’s vocals were recorded by William to feature on the Gorongosa park wildlife series for PBS.

Modou is not only a performing and recording artist, he is also a tutor, teaching Kora and Djembe both here in the UK and internationally at festivals and corporate workshops. Modou has also worked with both ‘Live Music Now’ and ‘Superact’ these are charity based organisations that provide participatory performances, workshops and training events throughout the UK.  They deliver music to groups in the community whose access to live music would normally be restricted, such as children with special needs, adults with learning difficulties, older people, hospital and hospice patients, prison inmates and young offenders and refugees.  

Modou’s dream is spread through his music: the universal language of peace, togetherness, love and understanding across the globe.

Rose Pearl and Dan Linn are Swansea-born musicians who have performed and composed music together for over a decade. Their style takes influences from folk, minimalism, classical, sound art and rock. Their eponymously titled debut album has recently been released through Bandcamp.

Dr Jenn Kirby is a composer, performer, lecturer and music technologist. She teaches music technology and composition at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Her output includes contemporary instrumental composition, electroacoustic music, sound art, noise music, laptop orchestra performance, musical theatre and solo live electronics.

Saturday Shenanigans: Port Erin

Garnering near-cult status as purveyors of original genre-bending music,Port Erin are a band of three.

The past decade has seen them extensively tour the U.K. performing over 600 shows at some of of the U.K.’s most prestigious venues. They have made appearances at many festivals including; Glastonbury Festival (‘10, ‘11, ‘13 & ’14 ), played live sessions for BBC Introducing and their music has been aired numerous times on BBC Radio 6.

Their musicality is magnetic with tightly wound dives and grooves. Cerys and Jacob’s rhythm section is a solid unit, Reuben drifts in-at times controlled and soulful but with moments of cornered fretting. A milieu of sonic textures are at play with echoes of jazz, coupled with mechanical Krautrock undertones. They are as punk as they are prog and as political as they are personal.

Port Erin draw inspiration from the likes of XTC, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Syd Arthur, Talking Heads, Morphine and Tortoise.

Arcadia Roots are Worcestershire based band who’s music is a combination of reggae, trance-blues and rock. The band, who have been working musicians for many years, write all of their own music and their live performances can only be described as “Infectious” due to their ability to get the audience on their feet and moving to their roots rhythms.

Other 2018 festivals included main stage at Lakefest sharing the stage with the likes of The Darkness, The Green gahering, BOSfest and One Love 2018.

Friday Live: Jack Blackman

Jack Blackman is fast developing into one the most accomplished and exciting young performers on the roots scene today. 
 
Jack’s guitar playing has been described as 'exceptional' by Whispering Bob Harris. He has performed his songs all across the country and as far as the Mississippi Delta. Having cut his teeth in his teens trading licks with such luminaries as Paul Jones and The Blues Band, more recently with Tony Joe White and receiving accolades from Martin Simpson who marvelled, ‘At last! A brilliant young guitarist coming through’, Jack is no stranger to blues and folk. On his latest album, he fuses this with country, rock and pop with a voice that has been described as sounding 'older and more careworn than his tender years should allow' (Acoustic Magazine).
 Jack is an artist not to be missed.

Independents Day

Independents Day: a different kind of book event, featuring voices from outside the mainstream. As publishing becomes more corporate and risk-averse, small imprints are bringing new talent to our attention, using crowd-funding, print-on-demand and other ways of breaking the mould. What better place to showcase their work than Hay? Spanning fiction, non-fiction, local interest and poetry, a varied programme of talks, readings and conversations will tap into the creative energy. Join us, meet with authors and catch the fringe as it moves centre stage.  Signed copies for sale. Refreshments available all day.

Admission free.

Originally from Scotland, Duncan McCorkindale grew up in Manchester, immersed in music since before he can remember. He's taken time to learn and respect a wide range of genres, collecting more instruments than he can count along the way.

Expect rhythmic acoustic guitar, kickbox, powerful vocals, lap slide, harmonica and loop pedal, with flavours of folk, dance, country, blues and more.

Support comes from local talent and favourite, singer/songwriter Adam Thorn, fresh from his recent tour to Denmark and gearing up for another festival-packed summer.

Friday Live: A Different Thread

British / American duo – A Different Thread, deliver an intoxicating mix of Beatlesque folk-rock meets Gillian Welch dark country.

It’s not every day that you meet someone in the street and decide to tour the world with them, yet, ‘A Different Thread’ has done just that. Traveling songwriters: Robert Jackson (Lichfield, Staffordshire) and Alicia Best (Durham, North Carolina) first sang
together in 2016 while busking in the streets of Galway, Ireland. Inspired by the folk songs that have criss-crossed the Atlantic over the generations in true folk fashion, they joined forces and went full throttle on a tour that spans across the UK, Europe and the US (and even down to Guatemala and back); living on the road, penning new songs and cultivating their own unique blend of folk, country and blues, or as they call it: British-Americana.

Friday Live: Lewis Barfoot

“Best known for the ethereal poise of her crystal singing voice” Folk and Honey. 

Described by Irish Radio International as a maker of “Delicious music: A massage of the heart, a whisper to the soul”. Anglo-Irish singer songwriter Lewis Barfoot works with an uncomplicated loveliness of sound, combining her ethereal, evocative vocals with original compositions and reinventions of traditional songs from Ireland and the UK. A gifted storyteller transporting the listener to strange, magical, otherworldly places.

There’s a timelessness about her work, and as a bearer of the old songs she keeps the legacy of trad music alive in her unique creations. Frequently compared to the likes of Lisa Hannigan, Ane Brun, and Joni Mitchell. Her first recording, the independently released EP “Catch Me” as heard on Johnny Coppin’s BBC Radio 2 Folk show was described by Invisible Filter as “Utterly brilliant”. She is currently recording her debut album “Folkalism” with Scottish Fiddler Essa Flett, Welsh Cellist Hannah Thomas and English Clarinetist Matt Dibble.

Saturday Shenanigans: Blackbeard's Tea Party 'Ten YAAR Anniversary Tour'

Blackbeard’s Tea Party’s bold and riotous modern folk rock is built for late nights and big stages. Traditional songs and tunes are given a heavy rock edge with earth shattering riffs, playful arrangements and driving dance rhythms. This is gutsy folk rock dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.

The band celebrate a decade in music in 2019 and will commemorate this with their 'Ten YAAR Anniversary Tour' in the Autumn.

Blackbeard's Tea Party believe a live show should be a spectacle for the eyes as well as the ears. Outlandish outfits, costume changes, DIY props, unhinged stage antics and chaotic choreography all add up to an engaging, high-octane show that inevitably leaves audiences cheering for more.

Their most recent release, the 5-track EP ‘Leviathan!’, explores the romanticized glories and the full gruesome horrors of the 19th century whaling industry. The record brings with it a bigger, bolder sound and a revamped live show, employing a heftier rhythm section with their new double-Drum Kit set up.

‘Contemporary folk rock at its most infectious’ - R2

‘York’s answer to The Pogues, but with cleaner fingernails’ - The Telegraph

‘Blackbeard's Tea Party restored my faith in foot-tapping, fun, energy-packed music

recently. In short: they make shanties chic’ -Roger Crow, Huffington Post

‘Gloriously wild, gamely OTT and sharp. This is convincing and essential’ - fRoots 

‘Barnstorming buccaneers belting our riff-tastic folk rock’ - Songlines
