MYKUR – Folksange, Monday 22 January, 7.30pm

Since inception, Danish artist Myrkur has been in a class of her own. The classically trained multi- instrumentalist leads a one-woman project known for combining the raw, masculine energy of second-wave black metal, with an ethereal, sophisticated virtue. It is these latter qualities which will be distilled into an exclusive series of performances entitled Myrkur: Folkesange. Says Myrkur: “I am beyond excited to embark on my Folkesange tour. I will perform traditional Nordic folk songs and acoustic versions of my own compositions, both...

HAIKU SALUT CHRISTMAS LAMP SHOW – 15 & 16 December, 8pm

Back at St John’s for the third (and fourth!)  time, Haiku Salut are a unique proposition, sweeping between all-manner of genres but never losing the soft focus of the inspired instrumentals that provide their back-bone. Rising from minimal, glitchy pop songs into moments of distinct and awe-inspiring grandiosity, the band match the intensity of their recorded sound with a mightily fetching, and suitably dramatic live show. If you’ve not seen the lamp show before, you’re in for a dazzling, exhilarating treat. The trio perform with a...

French multi-instrumentalist Colleen (Cécile Schott) is fearless in her willingness to explore new sounds and new ways of creating music as a solo performer. On her new album A flame my love, a frequency, out October 20th, she introduces the most drastic change to her music since she began singing on her fourth album, setting aside the viola da gamba she is known for in exchange for all electronic instrumentation – Moog pedals and Critter and Guitari synthesizers. The music of A flame… is the closest Colleen has come to a concept...
