Featuring … Long Dead Kings, Lana and the Tradesman, Sabiya (+ 1 more act TBC)
Folklore’s Sunday club starts a little earlier in the month of June at 2:15 until about 7:15. There will still be four quality live acts as well as games, silent films and Wonderful homemade baking from Wright Little Baker .. YUM!!
Formed in late 2010, LONG DEAD KINGS are one third rootsy lullabies, one third dark country noir and er… another third valve pushing folk rock.
Occupying a large 19th century church in Crouch End, North London, the band comprises three multi-instrumentalist (they swap around sometimes) songwriters, a campaigning rhythm section and no one single questionably principled front man.
As you read this from the comfort of your home or office or school or prison cell, the band is most likely out there somewhere like Kilburn, slogging away, entertaining the whiskey-sodden masses with music and songs and words.
The band released their first full album in 2011, and previously worked with producers at London based artist development outfit The Animal Farm. They also have their own residency night, ‘Before The Goldrush’, at The Wilmington Arms in London, showcasing the best as yet undiscovered Folk Rock and Americana artists.
Next up is Newly formed band Lana & the Tradesmen. David Burns from Orchid has penned some beautiful tunes of his own style and fronts the band which include Lucy Grimble on Piano and backing vocals, Geoff Hayden on guitar and bass and Alana Goddard on drums. Originally called The Tradesmen (Dave and Geoff) the name Lana was added when Alana joined on drums. Lucy is the latest member of the band so discussions are no doubt going to have to take place to see if the bands name will evolve any further. The Band are currently in the studio recording their debut album to be released later in the year!
WRIGHT LITTLE BAKER
Some of her earliest memories are of baking (making jam tarts from Mum’s pastry offcuts counts as baking, right?) and I struggle to imagine any problem that couldn’t be made better with a biscuit fresh from the oven.
