Saturday Shenanigans: Jo Carley And The Old Dry Skulls

Tickets £7 advance / £9 OTD
Doors 8pm

Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls play a unique hybrid of early 20th Century music infused with dark imagery. Intense and compelling, they combine 1930’s voodoo sounds with a steamy broth of vaudeville, blues, skiffle, early ska, old-timey country and folk. Singer Jo Carley is smack in the middle of the mix, with a snarl and a twinkle as she uses her sweet melodies to tell of terrible things. This is made even more bewitching as she switches from fiddle to mandolin to washboard. The driving force is Tim Carley’s one-man-band set-up with guitar, kick-drum and foot tambourine (the rattlin’ shoe)! They are joined by multi-instrumentalist James Le Huray on double bass and banjo.

"Jo Carley & The Old Dry Skulls were a joy to behold.  Rooted firmly in a bygone era when Voodoo and Black Magic were rife, the audience were all spellbound by the performance and its originality" - Adrian Blacklee - Blues Matters Magazine (UK)


"... a wonderfully enchanting show where magical songs were scattered." - thenextgig.nl (Netherlands)

"... a creepy-mischievous touch.  Sarcasm is no stranger to her.  It seems as if she predicts hell in such a way that you have to laugh about it" - Cultuurpakt.be (Belgium) 

“...a steaming broth of cabaret, blues, ska, Vaudeville, voodoo and skiffle. Horror stories are the main course, with a side orders of sex, trouble, and all-night parties” - Hans Werksman - Here Comes The Flood (Netherlands)

“...riffs and rhythms, stomp and tap, crazy woman on vocals you find yourself waiting for her to cast a spell on you” - Alan Pearce - Blues Matters Magazine (UK)

Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls (UK) combine the voodoo rhythms of 1930's ska and the blues with old timey vaudeville cabaret.

Friday Live: The Meadows + Paul Lloyd Nicholas

Tickets £6 adv. / £8 OTD
Doors 8pm

Meet The Meadows: Melody, Fantasia, Harvey and Titania, a band with a bond. And a lot of dogs. The Meadows are a young and vibrant multi-instrumentalist Celtic-Crossover Folk band, all drawn from one family. The siblings’ second album ‘Dreamless Days’ is due for release on 24 September 2021 on Pokey Cupboard Records. These are perhaps the youngest ‘veterans’ in British music, their musical training was gleaned at scores of gigs all around the country from a very tender age augmented by Classical training with fantastic orchestral performers from all over the UK.The inspiration for the new record came from the enforced focus brought by lockdown. The band changed direction to write, record and produce an original album, working with the legendary Steve Balsamo on the song he contributed: 'Dream You Into Life’. The album was recorded at their home studio, affectionately known as ‘Pokey Cupboard Studios’. The inspiration for the album is dreams, faith, the landscape of Wales, old haunts, childhood memories, the changing world and their beloved dogs. Each has their own dog; Merry, Hugo, Eowyn and Gawain!Whilst The Meadows is truly a family affair, each member of the band brings something new and individual to the sound and the outlook. Melody plays flute, piano, violin, guitar, whistles, recorder, bodhrán and also sings. She often switches between instrument mid-song and usually dances simultaneously. She’s a keen cook and also does much of the band’s social media. Fantasia plays piano, violin and sings. She has a deep love of musical improvisation, and bringing together the classical and the contemporary. She teaches music and also loves literature. Harvey plays violin, piano, guitar, bodhrán and also sings. He’s the quiet one of the group and loves tennis, painting and baking. Titania is the lead vocalist, but also plays piano, violin, percussion and ocarina. She is a huge fan of musical theatre, writing and also the outdoors and dressing creatively in historically-inspired clothing!

Their debut album ‘Force Of The Tide’ delved into the seafaring heritage of the British Isles, ranging from the beautiful Welsh language maritime lullaby ‘Si Hei Lwli Mabi’ to reimagined sea shanties and uptempo instrumental tunes. ‘Force of the Tide’ was awarded Fatea Debut Album of the Year 2019 along with receiving a nomination for Best Album at the Sound Board Magazine Awards.

The Meadows’ understanding and closeness comes from familial ties, of course, but also from having been home-schooled by their creative and spiritual parents. ‘Dreamless Days’ is a melding of the old and the new; these are songs that draw inspiration from history, mythology, nature and everyday life. These themes come together with a joyous but easily worn musical virtuosity that weave between foot stomping reels to rich vocal harmonies. The Meadows specialise in making a connection and taking their audiences on a spellbinding journey: as ‘Dreamless Days’ proves, these siblings are in a field of their own…

"Such a beautiful recording, from such an unaffected band. And hugely, luminously talented too, of course... Don't let anyone change or spoil you. I imagine that is the last thing anyone could do... Transfixingly beautiful!”  - Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales

The band has been showcased by Fatea Magazine as one of the best emerging U.K. Folk bands.  Force of the Tide has been awarded the ‘Debut Album of the Year’ in Fatea’s Annual Awards 2019 and was nominated for the 2019 Sound Board Magazine Awards among the top four artists from Wales in the ‘Best Album’ category.  

“Beautiful, absolutely gorgeous!”- Frank Hennessy, Celtic Heartbeat, BBC Radio Wales

After finishing the E.P. ‘Through the Fayre’, they toured theatres and concert venues across Great Britain with a self-produced original show, Celtic Journey, alongside the international soprano Kristyn Murphy who joined them from Maine.  During the tour, they performed live on television networks and BBC Radio Wales where listeners contacted the station to ask whether their performance really had been live.

The Meadows have twice played at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections, the International Music Eisteddfod in Llangollen, the Fishguard Folk Festival, How the Light Gets In, The Little Big Gig, Cardiff’s WMC and many other festivals and events along with regular airplay on national and international radio and T.V. networks.  A number of their works have debuted on BBC radio.  

Paul Lloyd Nicholas is a South Wales singer/songwriter whose albums 'Ariel' and 'Hold the Line' have been released to high critical acclaim. Paul has performed at Cardiff's Millennium Centre, the National Museum of Wales and at festivals and folk clubs across the UK and Europe. His songs are regularly played on radio stations as far afield as Australia and the USA and, of course, on the BBC. 

‘I thoroughly enjoy Paul’s approach to lyric storytelling.'- Harvey Andrews

Eira/Snow

Tickets £6 adv. / £8 OTD
Doors 8pm

Eira/Snow; is a union between Caractacus Downes and Lyndon Owen, two multi-instrumentalists who combine influences as diverse as the music of the Celts to that of the Middle East, Spain to the lands of eastern Europe; a true fusion from two players who have a long standing and close understanding.

This enthralling and eclectic musical sound is conveyed by both the use of conventional instruments, saxophone and double bass, and less familiar instruments such as Armenian Douduk, Turkish Mey and Zurnah, Hungarian Tarogato, electronic tanpura, Gaita Gallega, Futujara and range of percussion.

Past performances have been received enthusiastically and left audiences enraptured. They are pushing new boundaries musically and the opportunity to experience the enthusiasm and mastery of these two talented and skilled musicians is not to be missed. Their empathy for each other and their instruments is palpable; their skill and their creative horizons infinite.

“ … there’s a sense of being taken on a musical ‘world tour’ at every Eira/Snow gig … but for all this Eira/Snow’s pieces are primarily folk tunes with infectious melodies and strong grooves and an essential simplicity that ensures that they remain accessible no matter how far the band may push them.” Ian Mann, www.thejazzmann.com

Friday Live: Old Sea Legs

Tickets £8 adv. / £10 OTD
Doors 8pm

Crawling with vivid imagery and colourful characters, a timeless tangle of tongue-twisting, brain-burrowing lyrics that can swing from a breathless barrage to a lilting lament – at times without a moments notice – ’Old Sea Legs’ is more than just a nom de guerre for Dublin songwriter and performer Ian Bermingham; it is a window into a world entirely of his own creation.

Best known for his time as frontman of Dublin quintet ‘The Eskies’, Bermingham has wasted no time in stepping into new, uncharted waters as a solo performer since the group’s sad demise in the latter half of 2019.

Displaying all of the storytelling nous and craft of the quintessential folk troubadour, the melodic ear of a pop pioneer and the lyrical largesse that has become so synonymous with Ian’s songwriting, ‘Old Sea Legs’ see’s the Dubliner push himself to new and exciting territories.

Saturday Shenanigans: Mark Harrison Band

Tickets £6 adv. / £8 OTD
Doors 8pm

 "really excellent … he takes very real things, normal things that happen in life, and he writes about them in a way that makes you think afresh about them" - Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2

There is no one in music quite like Mark Harrison. He is widely considered one of the most original and interesting artists currently operating in the UK.  His highly individual, all-original music goes down very well with audiences of all kinds, and it has taken him and his band (consisting of some of the UK’s top roots musicians) to some of the top venues and festivals in the UK, attracting acclaim wherever he goes. Recent appearances on BBC Radio 2, as guest on Cerys Matthews’s show and on Anneka Rice’s Pick Of The Week show, have further added to his growing reputation.    

 Described at BBC Radio 2 as ‘quirky’ and an artist who ‘makes you think afresh’, and by one eminent reviewer as ‘approaching national treasure status’, Mark is a totally original songwriter, a stunning guitarist, and a master storyteller. Mark’s live shows are well-known not only for the music but also for his introductions and explanations of the songs, and audiences frequently comment on how big a part these play in their enjoyment of the shows. Delivered in a manner often described as ‘wry’ and ‘dry’, these mark him out even more as a unique artist. 

"fresh as morning sunshine and as sharp as a well-honed razor'" Folkwords

 Mark is a songster, and his songs cover all manner of non-standard subjects. With catchy tunes, lyrics than intrigue and engage, and striking rhythms, they make you smile, think and move. He takes elements of roots music, including folk, blues and gospel, to create something new that is very much his own genre. Each song is a snapshot of life or has a story to tell, like a 3-minute film or novel. 

A thrilling, rhythmic, finger-picker and slide player, with a very distinctive style.  Mark tours extensively. He has appeared at top festivals such as Celtic Connections, Bearded Theory, The Great British Folk Festival, Lakefest and Jazz FM Love Supreme and at prestigious venues all over the UK. He has released six albums which have been unanimously acclaimed across a wide range of areas of the music world, receiving a very great deal of airplay and highly enthusiastic reviews in the UK, Europe and the US.

Saturday Shenanigans: Cable Street Collective

Tickets £8 adv. / £10 OTD
Doors 8pm

2019 was the biggest year yet for Cable Street Collective. Building on the critical hype and radio play (on the likes of BBC Radio 6Music, Radio X and Amazing Radio, among others) generated by their second EP, Where Now From Here? they spent the summer touring extensively – playing at Glastonbury, Shambala Festival and a whole host of festivals and venues up and down the country. 

“Spicy indie pop with a tropical feel.”– CLASH Magazine

The band initially broke through onto the festival circuit with the release of their first EP, The Best of Times, in 2014, and have since built up a stellar reputation as a live act with back-to-back summers tearing up the likes of Boomtown, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, The Isle of Wight Festival, and the Lake of Stars Festival (Malawi), as well as those mentioned above. 

Their sound mixes African-influenced guitars and beats with soulful female vocals and western melodies, creating an idiosyncratic alt-pop sound that’s all their own. Live, the band are joined by a horn section, and their sets are guaranteed to get everyone to their feet. 

“Their music grooves like a b*stard.”– Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music & BBC Introducing)

Saturday Shenanigans: Mishra

Tickets £8 adv. / £10 OTD
Doors 8pm 

Mishra are a global folk collective with strong roots in U.K folk, out of which they weave a tight web of intricate, Indian-influenced original music that defies definition and has already brought awards recognition since their formation in 2017. Originally a creative collaboration between Kate Griffin (The Unsung Roots) and Ford Collier (BBC R2 Folk Award nominated The Drystones), they have expanded into a collective with a continent-hopping instrumental palette that includes Indian tabla, double bass, Irish whistle, and African calabash. At the heart of their sound are Kate Griffin’s inimitable voice and clawhammer banjo, which soar above the driving rhythms produced by jazz-folk double bassist Joss Mann-Hazell and renowned tabla player John Ball (Rafiki Jazz, Indus), while multi-instrumentalist Ford Collier weaves an agile counterpoint on low whistle and adds yet more drive on percussion and guitar. They perform in line ups that range from duo to quintet, making each performance a unique experience. In 2018 Mishra won Cambridge Folk Festival’s first ever Christian Raphael prize, the prize money from which they used to record their debut album The Loft Tapes, which features live-in-the-room analogue recordings of their uniquely accessible Indo-folk and was featured in Songlines magazine, where it was described as an "airborne amalgam of cross-continental pollinations" (Tim Cummings) . In December 2019, Mishra celebrated the album release with a U.K-wide tour, in which different concerts featured different combinations of musicians from the collective. The album is distributed by Hudson Records.


"Fascinating stuff... I'm really enjoying Mishra's blend" - Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

“An airborne amalgam of cross-continental pollinations … More servings please” -Tim Cummings, Songlines Magazine

"Brilliantly executed Americana and folk mixed with Indian music... Lovely sound, beautifully sung… Gosh that’s tasty!“ -Mike Brocken, BBC Radio Merseyside

“It is a powerful and heady cocktail, yet at times almost mystical as well, bringing together the flavours and ingredients of four different continents, and producing a sumptuous feast for the ears… The Loft Tapes has undeniably forced its way into my top ten albums of 2019.” -David Auckland, Folk Radio

Tickets £8 Earlybird / £10 Advance / £12 OTD

Doors 8pm

Monster Ceilidh Band Present: their ‘Electrofolk’ spectacular with award winning talents of Accordionist Amy Thatcher and the gifted young Teeside Violinist Grace Smith. Their powerful and uncompromising approach has brought them to the attention of many of the major UK Festivals; from Cambridge to Bestival, along with Tanz und Folkfest, Germany and Colours of Ostrava in the Czech Republic and soon to audiences across the world.

The 'Monsters' have been guided by bands like Shooglenifty, Martyn Bennet, and the Peatbog Faeries, continuing in the electronic-fusion genre with their self styled ElectroFolk.

D’n’B producer the Touch works together with electronic experimentalist and bassist David de la Haye to augment the compositions of Amy, Grace and Octave Mandolin player, Kieran Szifris. The result is a crucible for smelting riffs, massive chord progressions, intense electronics, folk tunes and a wide variety of styles from simply some of the UK’s finest folk musicians.

This is not a ceilidh, it’s electrofolkmaggeddon!

“Monster Ceilidh Band have the skills to create that instant party, with an infectious blend that fuses UK folk, with drum & bass." - Mike Green, London King’s Place, Wilderness Festival & London Folk Guild

“Young and sassy, innovative and skilful the Monsters effortlessly fuse the traditional with the contemporary”Liz Holmes, Director Knockengorroch World Ceilidh

This experience has honed their live performance into something that R2 described as an “unbeatable live experience.
