An evening of literate, alternative songwriting from the UK

Rowan Coupland – Neofolk (harp/guitar/voice)- UK/Berlin

Rowan Coupland is a singer who has travelled all over the world looking for songs, a musical troubadour singing and performing with an astonishing voice and complex and delicate fingerpicked harp and guitar.
Veering from the most full blooded howls of the classic blues singers to wide eyed wonderment of the saddest folk song, his lyrics travel from his home in England to the streets of Paris, the mountains and lakes of Canada, and to the Berlin winter.

Album of the year, 2012- Brighton Music Blog
‘Thoroughly beguiling neo folk’ –Time Out London

Mute Swimmer – is the principle musical project of British artist Guy Dale.

He has described his work as an act of sabotage – often taking the process of writing and the moment of performance itself as a narrative subject. His songs defy easy categorization taking in elements of conceptual and performance art alongside those of post rock, folk and the traditional melodic song. Either as a band or solo Mute Swimmer creates music that is romantic, ironic and beguiling by rapid turns.

You wonder, reading On The Black Hill, if you, by mistake, have picked up the wrong book, a Thomas Hardy novel or at least something from the 18th or 19th century. But then the story of twins Lewis and Benjamin Jones starts with the dawn of the 20th century – so it’s really just the setting of a secluded Welsh farm, their refusal to let the modern times in and Chatwin’s classical style, that makes the novel seem so out of time, so timeless. I’m enjoying it, hope so do you!

Join the book club anytime (you don’t need to sign anywhere, not to worry!), we are always glad to make new acquaintances & you can buy the book in the shoppe with a 10% discount!

“Ein kompromissloser Musiker, der mit bestätigtem Optimismus musiziert. Nicht, um davon zu leben, sondern, weil er dafür lebt.”

“Dass die Folksongs nie ins Kitschige abdriften, hat auch mit Stephen Burchs Gesang zu tun, der alles andere als glatt ist. So zittrig, ja, brüchig kommt er oft daher, dass Conor Obersts Stil von den Bright Eyes dagegen schon fast geschliffen wirkt.”

“Ein Singer-Songwriter ist immer auch Poet. Und Burch ist ein ganz besonderer.”
