MAIA At The Borderline

A genre busting mix of sweet stunning vocal harmonies over funky blissed out grooves; punctuated by echoing banjo, guitar, shimmering mandolins, spooky brass and keyboards. Self proclaimed Sci-fi folk evangelists Maia formed in 2009 as experimental acoustic alchemists playing whatever instruments were lying around. After touring and playing festivals over the last four years and releasing two albums the band have built a steady loyal following. ON SALE NOW! An early contender for performance of the day came from Yorkshires Maia. Billed as sci-fi folk, they played a wonderful set of psychedelic folk tinged tunes that concluded with the spooky and sinister Voodoo Dreams. The relentless bass and rolling and hypnotic melody was quite stunning Louder Than War youthful, spirited, richly atmospheric and intelligently off-centre alt.folk pop Time Out A sci-fi folk group from Huddersfield known as Maia, who were received with excitement and warmth The Times (Cambridge Folk Festival) The most impressive aspect of Maia is that they are more adventurous and eclectic within the course of a single song than some artists dare to be in their entire career For Folks Sake Eclectic with surprising twists and turns throughout their set, Maia are very good at executing their own brand of whimsical folk. Upbeat and multi-instrumental, they set the right mood in the glade as feet tap and heads turn. Acoustic Magazine (In The Woods Festival)

The Unthanks

The Unthanks How Wild The Wind Blows Performing the Songs and Poems of Molly Drake A wistful mother in the 1950s makes some simple home recordings in her family sitting room. Little could she have known that decades later, her son would become one of the most poetic and influential songwriters ever, or that more than sixty years later, the dust would be blown off her own songs. On the surface, the 2013 release of Molly Drakes work could easily have been perceived as just a curious footnote and jigsaw piece in explaining the enormous talent of Nick Drake. In the eyes of The Unthanks however, and increasingly amongst others, Mollys work is extraordinary enough to rank alongside and independently of her brilliant son. With encouragement from the Drake musical estate and the full blessing and enthusiasm of celebrated actress Gabrielle Drake (Mollys daughter and Nicks sister) The Unthanks are sure to relish the opportunity. The Mercury nominated mavericks of British folk music are bound to treat the challenge with the same love and diligence for their subject as they did when reinterpreting the work of Robert Wyatt and Antony & The Johnson\'s. This tour of her reimagined work will be accompanied by an album release of Molly Drake\'s work - Diversions Vol 4. - the latest in a growing line of intrepid projects by The Unthanks. Never intended for public release, Molly Drakes recordings, made by her husband, were made at home and are of the time. In a climate where films, stories and music are being rehashed for spurious repeat exploitation, if ever a body of work actually merited reappraisal and fresh presentation, surely the work of Molly Drake is it. Her songs share plenty of common ground with her sons - charming and bittersweet, yet dark and pensive. www.the-unthanks.com www.twitter.com/TheUnthanks https://www.facebook.com/The-Unthanks-202472563113172/ Doors 7.30pm 14+

Skinny Lister At The Fleece, Bristol

Skinny Lister www.facebook.com/skinnylister Skinny Lister are not your average, modern day, gentrified English folk group. Up on their stomping feet and clicking their heels, the Skinny Lister sound took hold as Dans perceptive ballads and folkie idylls were boosted by an eruption of a rambunctious free spirited rum fueled party music. Soon the Skinny Lister sound was charging down the nations canals and waterways, bursting into spontaneous song in pubs and clubs, kicking up a summer frenzy at numerous festivals. Over 30 festivals in fact, a nonstop work rate that saw them acknowledged and awarded by PRS as the Hardest Working Band of summer 2011. Their allure is immediate at a time when modern homegrown folk music often spells designer bearded, theme park Americanisation, Skinny Lister are a welcome throwback to earthier bands. In an era when singing a song in a pub can get you thrown out for rowdiness, Skinny Lister not to mention the Skinny Sisters are a joyful reassertion of community principles. Skinny Lister the stand-apart folk band not afraid to match sensitivity with a high kicking free for all. Time to open the floodgates and get the deck party started. (But beware the Skinny Sisters, folks those ladies take no prisoners!)

Monster Ceilidh Band / Green Diesel / DJ Richard Dead

It\'s a double bill of the finest foot stomping folk! Monster Ceilidh Band impressed us so much on their last visit we had to get them back, plus support from unique folk rock band Green Diesel and an eclectic DJ set from Richard Dead! Monster Ceilidh Band Monster Ceilidh Band have the skills to create that instant party, with an infectious blend that fuses UK folk, with drum & bass. -- Mike Green, London Kings Place, Wilderness Festival, London Folk Guild Monster Ceilidh Band present: their Electrofolk spectacular with award winning talents of accordionist Amy Thatcher and violinist Shona Mooney. Their powerful and uncompromising approach has brought them to the attention of many of the major UK festivals; from Cambridge to Bestival, along with Tanz und Folkfest, Germany and Colours of Ostrava in the Czech Republic and soon to audiences across the world. The Monsters have been guided by bands like Shooglenifty, Martyn Bennet, and the Peatbog Faeries, continuing in the electronic-fusion genre with their self styled ElectroFolk. DnB producer the Touch works together with electronic experimentalist and bassist David de la Haye to augment the compositions of Amy, Shona and Octave Mandolin player, Kieran Szifris. The result is a crucible for smelting riffs, massive chord progressions, intense electronics, folk tunes and a wide variety of styles from simply some of the UKs finest folk musicians. This is not a ceilidh, its electrofolkmaggeddon! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7Bnzt4Ik88 Green Diesel The band Green Diesel make noise. Old fashioned, new fangled, jumping around with a violin and a bouzouki sort of noise. And they will continue to do so until they run out of instruments. Specialising in innovative folk rock, Green Diesel first emerged in 2009, determined to pair new interpretations of traditional tunes with their own manic compositions, and make them dance. The sextet of multi-disciplined musicians from Faversham, Kent, take their inspiration from the depths of English folk lore and legend and the classic folk rock sound of the 1970s. Like their predecessors Fairport Convention and The Albion Band, Green Diesel\'s sound is born from a love of traditional English music and a desire to reinvent it for modern audiences. Combining an ever-increasing number of traditional instruments with a virtuoso electric guitar, Green Diesel put their unique stamp on whatever they play, whether it is throwing a reggae twist into an old sea shanty or spicing up a jig with a touch of jazz funk. But it is the ferocity of their live music that sets Green Diesel apart - the band puts its collective heart and soul into every gig, working tirelessly on and off stage to ensure audiences are entertained from start to finish. Whether playing to a crowd of one or 1,000, their classic sound engages even the most dedicated folk traditionalist while their contemporary repertoire has earned them a loyal fan base amongst nu folk lovers. These are not static lessons in folk. This is noise, passion, and fire. This is the Green Diesel theory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iz9PGmUftJo DJ Richard Dead This eclectic collector plays everything from 50s R&B, 60s Psych, Punk, Post Punk and Post Hardcore US Indie from the 80s/90s, to all girl groups, 60s pop, rock n\' roll and world stuff!
