About

An evening of Progressive Folk Rock with two bands that are making a noise on the UK prog scene, Kindred Spirit Band and Spriggan Mist... Kindred Spirit Band Have a completely unique take on the Prog Folk Rock genre, weaving thrilling lead electric violin / viola or electric guitar and flute / sax with “perceptive and intriguing” song-writing, driving rhythms and "haunting and bewitching" female vocals. Their sound has been likened to Curved Air, Fleetwood Mac and the Moody Blues. Prog Rock and Prog Metal Zine wrote in a review of the band, “One of the best folk rock acts in activity in the UK”. Band founder and driving force, Elaine Samuels, began performing solo in folk clubs at the age of only 13, getting a mention in the local press as “one to watch”! She has featured on television, radio and at countless festivals and venues. To quote Rosie Upton of the BathEvening Chronicle, "Elaine has a voice which can be both hauntingly beautiful & deeply emotional...it is her rich repertoire of perceptive, intriguing self penned songs combined with her guitar work which sets her apart”. Elaine evolved the full Kindred Spirit Band band, notably performing at Guildford and Glastonbury Festivals and Liverpool's famous Cavern Club. Recently released album, “Elemental”, is attracting attention while acclaim for previous album, “Phoenix Rising”, led to international album distribution and a feature in Prog Magazine, with Rachel Mann calling it, “Folk rock meets classical with a scientific edge”. Spriggan Mist Originating in the Pagan folk world , Spriggan Mist have been catapulted onto the British Prog scene after a critically acclaimed performance at HRH Prog XI at the 02 in Sheffield. It was there that The Spriggs’ as they are affectionately known were labelled as Progressive Folk rock, and doors were kicked wide open to mainstream festivals such as Weyfest and Cambridge Rock Festival. As well as some great shows on the Prog scene across the country. However you label them Spriggan Mist’s version of Progressive folk rock is diverse and somewhat eclectic, blending overdriven guitars with instruments such as Saxophone, Recorders ,whistles and even a crumhorn creating a perfect backdrop for charismatic lead vocalist Fay Brotherhood to tell stories in that unique singing voice about Murderous Steampunk Mechanical Dragons , The Fae and a whole number of other mythical creatures. Packaged together with Jadoo Tribal Dance who are a Sword wielding, wing waving tribal belly dance troupe, you leave a Spriggan Mist show having been truly entertained. Spriggan mist will be playing many songs from their latest album Isambard The Mechanical Dragon... Doors are at 7 and show starts at 8:45. Tickets can also be purchased on the night subject to availability. Gonna be a cracker... KEEPING IT LIVE!
