A launch of my Crumbs album in London at the beautiful vibe of Servant Jazz Quarters.
Originally a classically trained violinist and vocalist, Kate also took up the hammered dulcimer in 1997. She performs both as a solo artist and with her ‘punk baroque’ project Fear of the Forest, combining live looping and electronic effects with folk, medieval/Renaissance and Middle Eastern influences. Kate has also worked with Lisa Knapp, Doudou Cissoko, Rose McDowall and Daemonia Nymphe, as well as having been a member of alternative rock bands Sergeant Buzfuz, and Paul Hawkins and the Awkward Silences.
Andy Whitehouse is recognised as a talented songwriter with a predilection for story and illuminating metaphor. Having fronted a series of much loved Sheffield bands including the Glorious, Honey Barbara and The Silver Darlings, he launched his first solo album, Almost Home in February 2017.
He has performed from Edinburgh to Brighton including providing support sets for Martin Stephenson, Mick Thomas, Curtis Eller and many more. He has performed on stage with Chris Wood and been likened to Nick Cave, Jacques Brel and Leonard Cohen due to the intensity of his performance and the romantic poetry of his songs, which are performed to a backdrop of “ethereal and atmospheric” (Rock ‘n’ Reel) guitar.
