Not before time, Hedge welcomes the opportunity to present a special night curated by our good friends at the wonderful Timbreland label.
Timbreland is run by Pete, Helene and Raz from Starless and Bible Black and was responsible for the first release from Hedge favourite Nancy Elizabeth Cunliffe, Wheel Turning King (from back in the heady days when she was still using her full name!) - they have been involved with many of the artists who have played Hedge over the last two years or so, and continue to provide a home to some great new music from the North West.
Four of their acts will be playing at this event, plus We Mythical King DJs, which we're really looking forward to!
I AM YOUR AUTOPILOT
The three main studio dudes Ben, Graeme and Jasper will be joined by an additional three players and added visuals to make their performance a one-off cosmic multi-dimensional mix of choral folk and Kraftwerk mechanics.
DAN HAYWOOD’S NEW HAWKS
Dan Haywood is an intrepid ornithologist, songwriter and country guitarist based in Lancashire. His expressive voice is genuinely idiosyncratic and his band are all part of the New Hawks sound - guitars, drums, violin, cello, bongos and gongs. While there are elements of folk rock, this is no laid back excursion to rural life but an inconstant tempo of almost vaudevillian drama as the words draw us in and the volume swoops up, then down and then up again.
THE WINTER JOURNEY
The husband and wife duo of Anthony Braithwaite and Suzy Mangion (from Manchester band George). Expect some gorgeous acoustic music, perfect male-female harmonies, tap dancing, innocent vandalism and the odd tiff – all part of their entertaining live show. Their album will be freshly available on the night before going into the shops.
Sally is a solo singer and songwriter with an amazing voice that reminds us of an early Polly Harvey but with a guitar sound that has more in common with Bert Jansch. Her debut EP will be released just before the show.
