India Electric Co. – 30th April
Saturday April 30 @ 8:00 pm£17.50
India Electric Company are perhaps best described as “a veritable musical magpie’s nest” – BBC Radio 3. Blending traditional instruments, Folk melodies and subtle electronic influences, they’ve toured extensively throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand, including UK shows at The London Palladium and Hammersmith Apollo.
After live sessions with BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music, Glastonbury Festival appearances and BBC Introducing’s backing, they released The Gap in 2020 with FRUK declaring them “one of the truly pioneering acts in Folk music”.
Support – Jack Cookson
Until fairly recently, Radio 2 Folk Award Nominee Jack Cookson’s approach to songwriting had been dry, visceral and equally as cynical, but after a couple of years of (un)quiet reflection away from music, learning a trade for a little more stability during the pandemic, he is writing with more optimism.
After all, nobody wants another bloke with an acoustic guitar singing about his very relative crisis. Cookson’s songs cover the clear and present issues of male mental health stigma, disconnection from the natural world and subsequent obsession with tech.
Accompanied with near-virtuosic fingerstyle guitar, a unique voice that is easy-on-the-ears plus the odd bit of harmonica, a set from Jack is one you’ll never forget.
Tickets £17.50 Full. £16.50 Concessions
