Kathryn Joseph – Wednesday 30 November, 8pm

Kathryn Joseph – Wednesday 30 November, 8pm

Prodigiously talented and criminally underrated; Kathryn is one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets. Her voice possesses the other-worldly quality comparable to Joanna Newsom and Björk; but she is by no means of an ilk. Better compared with Anthony Heggarty; she is an artist in every way; unique and soulful, and at the core a beautiful unnerving truth. This will be the first headline show in London for Kathryn Joseph since she played in 2015, in support of her debut LP ‘Bones You Have Thrown Me and Blood I’ve Spilled’,...

Fay Hield & The Hurricane Party, 13 October, 7pm

A singer who seems to have been born knowing how to carry a tune, but with the rarer gift of knowing how to go straight to the heart of a song, Fay Hield is “one of folk music’s most pre-eminent modern voices” (MOJO). Fay was the brain behind The Full English, an academic archive project sponsored by the English Folk Dance and Song Society. For the first time many of the finest early 20th century folksong collections were brought together and to celebrate this Fay developed a supergroup of folk performers, touring for two years, winning...
