£10.68 - £12.81

Distilled and beautiful acoustic music in a completely offgrid gig, candlelight, lanterns, no power, cash only……….

No whirrs, whizzes or distractions – just distilled music in an intimate environment with fire cooked food outside if weather permits.

Two very special performances, the trio SINK pull visceral and extraordinary music out of thin air, holding improvisation at its core and rooted in diverse musical traditions, spontaneous inspiration fuses with crafted composition to shape the distinct voices of the accordion, violin and saxophone into a powerfully coherent whole.

Working with traditional British song and motivated by ideas of persistence, resonance and deep cultural roots BURD ELLEN is the solo project of Debbie Armour

"the idea of Burd Ellen is to discover new ways to explore the British folk tradition and this record certainly accomplishes that ... haunting" - The Wire Magazine

"the sonic equivalent of Ingmar Bergman's immaculate Winter Light" - Stewart Gardiner, Concrete Islands

THIS EVENT HAS LIMITED PLACES, online ticket purchase is probably a good idea - and cheaper too. Ignite is an  ethical ticket provider returns 30% of the booking fee to culture and community.

Can I bring a torch? Only if its solar powered!

Will the toilets be lit? We think that they will also be candle lit –but we still need to trail run this event and we want to buy in as few extra candles and as few extra holders as we can, otherwise we compromise the point of this night, we are lookgi nto reduce not to add. 

Will there be food? if the weather permits we will offer some fire cooked food, watch the event for details.
