Thursday 17th January: Velvet & Stone
8.30pm, £2

Described as “haunting” by Claire Balding on BBC Radio 2, and “brilliant” by BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner Sam Kelly, Velvet & Stone have received a range of plaudits for their recorded music and live performances. Likened to a twenty-first century Fairport Convention, and comparisons drawn with Mumford & Sons and Seth Lakeman, they weave traditional threads through their song-writing, and combine them with folk-revival and contemporary flavours to produce an evocative and ethereal sound.
Crafting their live performances on the festival circuit [Cambridge and Sidmouth Folk Festivals, Larmer Tree Festival, Celtic Connections to name a few], the band take their audience on a journey from stunning soundscapes and storytelling to foot-stomping folk rock.

They play at the B Bar on 17th January as a duo (Lara Snowdon on vocals and guitar and Kathryn Tremlett on violin).
