Chalk Farm Folk is a fast moving train we are so happy to be on! After a smashing success for our launch in January, we are thrilled to bring this mighty bill of Americana acts to this new Camden residency. There just aren’t enough quality, free entry night’s of music in London and it feels especially good to be championing this one. A great night of music is planned featuring Dan Raza and the Shrouds. “Definitely a man ahead of the pack”, said Julian Piper of Acoustic Magazine. Friends of the band, Dan and his crew have been winning over every folk night in town and we’re lucky to catch him just before his upcoming German tour. Bara Bara Band, “an alt-folk quartet playing a mix of their own songs, old time American tunes and traditional British folk songs” will be bringing the banjo-stomping all the way from South London. They are currently recording their new album so we expect some fresh treats from them as well. We plan to be kicking off the festivities with the legendary Sam Beer. A man of nimble guitar picking fingers, the voice of a raspy angel and the digestive track of a whale. Sam, is half the brain and all the sexiness behind London’s Treetop Flyers, a band which Paste magazine called “a thrill delivering unexpected updates on it’s vintage influences”. It’s a rare treat to get him solo so it’s worth the trip. Finally we’re overjoyed to be joined by a surprise guest for our first full band set in ages! No telling just yet….
Look, we’ve heard they’re adding chicken wings to the menu just for us so basically, this is getting serious….spicy wings, bbq wings, slaw- soon enough Chalk Farm will be as plaid as Nashville.
See y’all there. x
