Amelia Coburn

March 19th

The Folklore Rooms

£10 / £12

Since being nominated for the Young Folk Awards, Amelia has travelled the world as part of her language studies and performance commitments. Extended stays in France, Mexico and Russia have informed her highly evocative and spellbinding original songs which draw on European folk and gypsy-jazz influences.

 

Although initially known for her exquisite intepretations of less-travelled new wave and pop songs from the likes of The Specials, Elton John, Dexys and Sparks she has taken some of this energy and artfulness into her own songs and particularly in her highly lyrical, narrative style and subject matter. From vengeful widows, sleep paralysis, mutinous pirates and Mexican street food to poetic tales of bittersweet romance and more she is not your run-of-the-mill writer and her gift for timeless-yet-inventive melody is truly world class.

elkyn has announced his debut album ‘holy spirit social club’.  Set for release via Curation Records on 18th March 2022, ‘holy spirit social club’ sees elkyn aka Joey Donnelly put his uncensored inner dialogue on paper, bravely airing the thoughts most wouldn’t dare expose. Whether that’s hurtful messages to one’s self, vague and elusive memories or lingering lessons from childhood, it’s all here on ‘holy spirit social club’, unfiltered and searingly honest. 

“elkyn’s uniquely visceral and vulnerable performances have a special way of packing emotion into small and vast spaces”, 

Atwood Magazine

 

“Music that fans of Elliott Smith or Villagers would fall for, Joseph Donnelly’s willingness to leave himself open means his songs connect right with the heart”,

On 'Book Of Fate', Luca Wilding further perfects his craft of life-affirming folk music.

The new EP follows on from Wilding's 2020 debut release 'To', as rapturously received by CLASH, Atwood and Beats Per Minute.

Tommy Alexander

October 14th

The Folklore Rooms

£7 / £9

Tommy Alexander is doing it all and doing it all very well. After self-releasing his brilliant alt-Country LP Waves in 2020, Alexander found his record on numerous end of the year lists, including nods from KEXP and Magnet Magazine. By this point it is clear that Alexander has established himself as a facet of the indie music world from his impressive and burgeoning booking agency, Pilot Light Booking, to his own musical outpouring. Alexander pens timeless songs with a powerful and dynamic voice and an evolved grasp on dense and concise lyrical design.

Tommy & co. have been fortunate to share the stage with inspiring artists like; Michael McDonald, Big Thief, Chaka Khan, Mac Demarco, Adrianne Lenker, People Under The Stairs, & more..
