Kit Hawes & Aaron Catlow
Best known as the virtuoso guitar and fiddle players from the band Sheelanagig, Kit Hawes and Aaron Catlow draw on their many influences to created unique arrangements of traditional music, as well as their own compositions. The live show is a musical journey through Europe, America and beyond, combining dazzling playing with a fine sense of musicality and showmanship.
Kit Hawes and Aaron Catlow’s debut album ‘The Fox’ has been received with critical acclaim. It explores the relationship between fiddle, guitar and voice, using the fertile ground of the traditional music of the British Isles as its starting point. The product of decades of musical experience, the track listing combines self penned tunes and folk tales, all intricately arranged and heartfelt.
_“Fleet fingered and ingeniously arranged… deserve to be thought of as up there with the best of them” _-** Songlines **
_“The pair demonstrate an eclectic approach that lifts them head and shoulders above the rest” - _Acoustic Magazine
INMIRIAM is the new project from Ellie Rose Rusbridge inspired by the biblical story of poet and prophetess Miriam. She recently completed an MMus in Creative Practice at Goldsmiths University where experimental pop and vocal music were at the forefront of her research and practice.
“Dusk-lit songs, strong and tender and sung in a voice that curls darkly at the edges in a way that’ll entice fans of Joanna Newsom and Regina Spektor” – Time Out Magazine
_“A rare and totally individual talent… In a favourite song of mine, ‘Hejira Again’, she responds to Joni Mitchell’s 1976 album and reveals a humility and awareness of the rich heritage of female singer-songwriters into which she has stepped. “ _- Sam Lee, Singer and Promoter, The Nest Collective
