Details

This gig is for a seated audience

Two of the world’s most prominent avant-folk ensembles join forces for a joint headline tour of the UK.

SUTARI
Exploring the traditions of Polish folk music, Sutari is a trio of singers, instrumentalists and performers, each from different musical and theatrical backgrounds. They use a mixture of traditional instruments (violin, basetla and drum), and also make use of everyday objects, exploring their potential as musical devices (for instance, a hand mixer, grater, bottles and a wrench). They explore deep vocal harmony traditions, searching for the essence and hidden character of traditional songs, whilst exploring themes of femininity in folklore. The Sutari project is a fusion of diverse music experiences and passions.

DEAD RAT ORCHESTRA
Performing internationally for over a decade, DRO have gained a reputation as one of the most innovative ensembles on the UK music scene. Raw, elemental and poignant and with a love of adventure, their performances feature flailing axes, salt and sawdust, throbbing harmonium, grinding fiddle and 2000 shards of micro-tuned steel cast to the floor in cascading, shimmering joy. DRO create works that blur boundaries between installation and performance. Activities have included The Cut (2014), a site-specific musical tour undertaken by canal boat along 273 miles of waterway; and Tyburnia (2015/17) exploring 17th/18th C. gallows ballads and their sociopolitical history.

+ support from THE DYR SISTER
Hailing from the City of Hull, England, Sally Currie AKA The Dyr Sister (where dyr is Old Norse for deer) is a multi-instrumental cervine beat mistress who conjures up surreal tales with the aid of viola, synth, mandolin her voice and an array of DIY samples. Performing her catalogue of haunting, ethereal, modern day folk songs as a one-woman band she paints a fascinating canvas of sound.
