Friday Live: Anne-Marie Sanderson + Ben Hutcheson

Anne-Marie Sanderson's voice is evocative of birds in flight - soaring, gliding, swooping - and it finds its home among the tall trees of her deft guitar work. Describing Anne-Marie's distinctive indie-folk music in these terms is apt; she is an artist who casts a careful eye and attentive ear to the natural world, alternating between wide-eyed wonder and wry observation.

For fans of Nick Drake, Vashti Bunyan, Beth Orton and books.

"a gloriously wide vista of astonishing grown-up tales which both fascinate and delight - the overall result, complex and immersive, is mesmerising...A bold, unusual and most beautifully constructed body of work." - Tap the Feed Magazine

"thoroughly atmospheric" - Northern Sky

"Anne-Marie Sanderson makes songs that ripple, peacefully, like circles in the water—full of gradual but unstoppable outward motion... delicate, but by no means flimsy, folk." - Ned Lannaman, The Portland Mercury 

"...like a more symphonic Laura Veirs [...] Sumptuous." - Higher Plain Music

Support comes from Ben Hutcheson, "a young singer/songwriter with a wisdom beyond his years". Ben bridges the storytelling gap between Passenger, Ed Sheeran and Tim McGraw making him an act to look for in the near future.

Friday Live: Solana

With their polyrhythmic fusion of world and folk styles, Solana have made quite a splash on the music and festival scene across the UK and in their adopted hometown of Bristol. Taking influence from such diverse greats as Tigran Hamasyan, Kíla, Vicente Amigo and Dhafer Youssef, Solana’s sound is rhythmically complex and harmonically rich. The band are at home playing to discerning sit-down audiences and lively festival crowds alike.
Formed in Valencia in 2012 as an itinerant acoustic folk trio, the band has developed almost beyond recognition through extensive touring and collaboration. Tamsin (flute/accordion) and Rowen (violin) weave together folk- and klezmer-inspired melodies which soar over a tight rhythm section. Elio’s Latin, African and reggae influenced drumming and JP’s flamenco guitar are locked together by Henry’s dynamic basslines.

“Their music ranges boldly from klezmer melodies, tingling tango, exuberant Irish folk and swinging jazz to pumping reggae and lilting Latin […] thoroughly invigorating” — Songlines
“A fervent and fertile form of world fusion” — Shire Folk
“They make my spice shelf look boring… an accomplished and colourful album” — Folk Radio UK
When not playing music, the members of Solana can be found making chutney, cycling long distances, and correcting people who mispronounce “paella”.

Friday Live: Jack Blackman

Jack Blackman is fast developing into one of 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 forthcoming 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).

Saturday Shenanigans: Keith James - The Songs of Leonard Cohen

Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen was an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, a wry humour and courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the stroke of each line. 

The chilling announcement of Leonard's passing marked the end of an era. His music befriended an entire generation. Within every line of his writing, he has been challenging us to listen more carefully, speak more thoughtfully, think more deeply and recognize our own fragility. A Man of Grace. This World will miss him very much!
 
With a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying love of the ‘pure song’ Keith James gives you a concert of Cohen’s amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable, exposing the solitary inner strength of his greatest songs in their original perfect form. Keith has performed an extensive tour of this concert in Theatres and Arts Centres across the UK, giving almost 400 concerts to over 100,000 people. This has proved to be one of the greatest honours in Keith James’ 40 year career in music. Keith lives in Powys, Wales and Andalucia, Spain
 
Amongst a concert of such songs as; Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne and Hallelujah, are also Poems by Lorca that Keith has set to music; Cohen’s greatest influence. There will also be songs from ‘You want it Darker’ released only weeks before his death – produced by his Son, Adam.
 
‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’  The Independent
‘Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice’  Sunday Times
‘an elegant and beautifully crafted reinterpretation of a great Artist’s words’  BBC Radio Scotland
‘certainly the UK’s most celebrated and evocative interpreter of golden music’  The Guardian
‘All the tears of time are shed in a few brief lines’  Times Literary Supplement
‘a sensitive and pleasingly understated delivery, all the better that the songs might speak for themselves’  Acoustic Magazine
