50 years ago, jazz harpist Dorothy Ashby released Afro-Harping, and here the brilliant young harpist Alina Bzhezhinska celebrates the legacy of a seminal Black woman artist from the 50s.

The band that Bzhezhinska had enlisted for this project included Christian Vaughan (keyboards, musical director), Gareth Lockrane (flutes), Julie Walkington (double bass) and Joel Prime, the only survivor from the “Inspiration” band, on drums and percussion.

Dorothy Ashby was one of the "most accomplished modern jazz harpist”, who established the harp as an improvising jazz instrument, beyond earlier use as a novelty or background orchestral instrument, proving the harp could play bebop as adeptly as the instruments commonly associated with jazz, such as the saxophone or piano. 

Renown harpist Alina Bzhezhinska is celebrating 50th anniversary of the release of Ashby’s most innovative album “Afro-Harping” with her new formidable band featuring Gareth Lochrane - Flutes, Christian Vaughan - Keys, Julie Walkington - Bass andJoel Prime - Drums.

Raiments: Avantgarde lofi experimental art pop poetry

http://raiments.bandcamp.com

Raiments are a Berlin-based avant garde musical collective, the

brainchild of lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Mano Camatsos.

Mano’s unorthodox electric guitar style is inspired by hip hop,

ethnological recordings and 20th century classical music. His abstract

lyrics meet an ever rotating procession of strings, woodwinds, brass

and electronics all held down by a locked groove. Raiments recently

played at the Fusion Festival 2018 in Germany and are looking to

continue their increasing momentum.

FEET have had quite the year. Coming out of the traps at a pace with their attention grabbing YALA Records debut 7", Petty Thieving, the indie newcomers followed that with another much-praised release, Backseat Driver. Those early taster releases picked up a host of top quality support, including the likes of Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Radio X’s John Kennedy, NME, Sunday Times Culture, DIY, Dork & The Line of Best Fit.

Whilst all juggling their final years at uni in Coventry, the band hit the road for the long hot summer of 2018, travelling the length and breadth of the UK in a tiny hatchback, for a host of key festival appearances (inc Field Day, Truck, Electric Fields, Tramlines and many more), headline shows, and more supports with their old friend Declan McKenna.

Today, FEET announce their first national headline tour, taking their raucous live show on the road for 12 dates next year that kick off in Portsmouth on 27th February, finishing in Dublin March 15th. These will also be the first live appearances with new drummer Ben (formerly of Dead Pretties).

One of the most imaginative characters on the pop music fringe, since the year 2000 Thomas has been traveling the world performing with his evolving “band” of bizarre self-made Harry Partch-esque instruments including a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels called ‘Mother Superior’ and a pimped-up Dr. Seuss-ian Gramophone called ‘The Hornicator’, as well as his venerable resonator guitar ‘Hank’. Time Out magazine has dubbed him “The king of home-made instruments” while Splendid magazine called him “one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you’ve never heard of…an exceptional talent, unique and resistant to comparison, yet fairly accessible even to casual listeners.”

Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with things lunar, including various reasons ‘Why Dogs Howl at The Moon’. Notable supporters and collaborators include Jarvis CockerDuke Special, Richard Hawley, Amanda Palmer, Brian Viglione (of the Dresden Dolls/Violent Femmes) and the late author Terry Pratchett.

Shoot Festival is proud to present Sound: In Bloom; an evening of brand new music by three of Coventry and Warwickshire’s most exciting, emerging artists.
 
Expect a fusion of poetry and folk from The Mechanicals Band, a musical dream with captivating visuals courtesy of the They Come For You In The Night and a fresh new sound from Callum Pickard.
 
All of the musicians in the line-up performed as part of Shoot Festival’s Sound Stage in 2017 and have been commissioned to showcase their talent further with a new and original set. 
 
Crossing genres, styles and platforming unique artists, Sound: In Bloom is the perfect opportunity to experience new music blooming out of the city.
 
THE MECHANICALS BAND
The Mechanicals Band has a reputation for originality and excellence. Tonight, the band are showcasing new music inspired by one of Coventry’s most famous poets, Philip Larkin. The group will take Larkin’s words and render them in to song with fresh, folk, jazz and classical instrumentation. The set will also include a retelling of Larkin’s life by a talented company of actors.
 
CALLUM PICKARD
Singer-songwriter Callum Pickard has a very unique sound. Inspired by dream pop, traditional brass, woodwind and strings skilfully fused with electronica, he brings his passion to create a daring and dynamic new set. Callum’s songs derive from personal experience and whilst sometimes abstract, his lyrics complement the fresh approach to his new sound. Collaborating with a multitude of local, national and international musicians, Callum is currently recording his debut album and will showcase four of these new songs at Sound: In Bloom.
 
THEY COME FOR YOU IN THE NIGHT
What would the world look like if Egypt had remained a super power since the time of the pharaohs? This is the question They Come For You In The Night dares to ask. With music, created on a bed of thick synthesised lines and glued together with booming reverb laden drums, combined with haunting intoxicating melodies and mesmerising projected visuals, we’re invited to musically immerse ourselves in a parallel world.

“There was something so uncommonly arresting about Cluck’s ornate, classically-inspired melodies and the way she coaxed out her stark and poignant balladry with a peculiar and uniquely clipped glottal beauty. Free of cliché, free of clutter, it delivered the kind of emotional payoff that was totally unputdownable.” -Wears the Trousers Magazine

Say Sue Me are a Surf inspired Indie-Rock/Pop act from Busan, South Korea and cited as one of 2018's ‘break-out bands'.

Childhood friends Jaeyoung Ha (Bass) and Byungkyu Kim (guitar) met drummer Semin Kang and played in bands together since winter of 2012, when they met Sumi Choi at a tea shop in Nampo-dong. They liked her speaking voice and immediately offered her a spot as the vocalist in a new band that would become Say Sue Me. Sumi turned out to be a natural at songwriting. Semin sadly suffered trauma from a fall. New drummer Changwon Kim stands in while they await Semin’s recovery.


Following showcases at SXSW in 2018, the band released their sophomore album “Where We Were Together” and a RSD covers EP which won praise from Pitchfork, NPR, Billboard, i-D, The Independent, Stereogum, Paste, MTV, Uproxx. Fader, DIS, DIY, The 405 & more. Three tracks were playlisted on BBC 6Music three times where Lauren Laverne, Tom Ravenscroft, Gideon Coe and Don Letts have championed the band as well as Elton John on Beats1 and KEXP.
The band toured the UK/Europe twice in 2018  and count Yo La Tengo/Japanese Breakfast/Snail Mail/The Coathangers/The Ravonettes/Speedy Ortiz as fans.
In 2019 Say Sue Me were nominated for 5 Korean Music Awards and announced for SXSW & Liverpool Sound City Festivals.

If you ask the likes of Peter Buck, Scott Mccaughey, Willy Vlautin, Jay Farrar, John

Murry or Kathleen Edwards they’ll all agree that Peter Bruntnell is a writer with rare and mysterious qualities.There are many influences at work on his records from The Beatles to Big Star to Nick Drake (although they're not necessarily apparent, like the

best influences aren't),and when NME claimed that “Peter Bruntnell’s records should be taught in schools”, they were referring to the particular appeal of the quiet Devonian’s songwriting craft. Nos Da Comrade returns emphatically to the earliest days of Bruntnell’s career, a full-on electric psych-rock experience.

 

"Bruntnell has a remarkable knack for turning out big, dreamy, melodic, memorable songs" - MOJO

"his songs are warm and beautifully radiant"-Uncut

"one of the finest songwriters in Britain"-The Independant

"one of England's best kept musical secrets"-Rolling Stone

"lyrically ingenious and emotionally, intellectually affecting songs that bears comparison with

the all-time greats"-The Guardian

"this wonderful album demonstrates why his near-peerless songwriting should be cherished"-Q
"Bruntnell is up there with the very best. "Irish Times

Internationally acclaimed Toby Walker is an award winning, roots music fingerstyle guitar virtuoso and songwriter who has toured the US, the United Kingdom, and Europe. Blending the styles of blues, ragtime, country, bluegrass, old-time jazz and rock, Walker has his own style and has received numerous awards, including being the 1st place recipient of the International Blues Challenge Award in Memphis and the New York Music Award for best instrumental CD. Walker has also been inducted into the New York Blues Hall Of Fame.

Toby’s passion for blues, rags, folk, and other traditional American music drove him to leave an apartment crammed full of recordings, books and instruments for the Mississippi Delta, Virginia and the Carolinas where he tracked down some of the more obscure - but immensely talented - music makers of an earlier era. He learned directly from Eugene Powell, James "Son" Thomas,Etta Baker, and R.L Burnside, among others.

 

"If he doesn't get them with his phenomenal guitar playing or catchy songs, he gets them with his wonderful stories. True entertainers have an engaing spirit that puts a smile on your face. Arlo Guthrie has it. David Bromberg has it. And so does Toby. "

- John Platt - WFUV

 

"A fingerpicking guitar virtuoso"

- Happy Traum
