ABOUT BELL LUNGS...
Bell Lungs is from Scotland, UK where she has been building an excellent live reputation and carving out her unique post-folk sound using layered vocals, electric violin, guitar, tuned percussion, field recordings and effects pedals since 2016. Her music is atmospheric; a shifting soundscape that incorporates snippets of songs with field recordings to create a live show which is inherently transcendental, musing upon rural idylls, post-industrial heartlands and online culture infused with psychedelic, improvisational and folk elements.
Bell Lungs has supported Richard Youngs, Sarah Davachi, Richard Dawson, Diane Cluck, Sharron Kraus, Marshall Allen, This is the Kit and Martin Carthy. She has recorded with Pefkin, Viking Moses, Golden Ghost, LT Leif, Trembling Bells and Washington Irving.
David Keenan of The Wire deemed Bell Lungs’ vocals “elemental”, and RaveChild said she had “a truly remarkable voice, like cut quartz”.
ABOUT JON COLLIN
Jon Collin is a guitar player from the North of England now residing in Sweden. He is also the proprietor of the Winebox Press & Early Music labels. Jon's work is deeply personal and sits in a lineage of artists who have managed to etch out their own hermetic worlds and forms of expression that, from time to time, invite us in to briefly catch glimpses and share in something other. Often, but not always, his music is constructed from fragmented elements of the guitar's history. Whispers of blues, american primitivism and amplified excess are re-imagined as palettes of bleeding colour and hazey exploration. Jon's use of the instrument is fundamentally physical, it sounds as a worn object connected to the body: audible interactions of flesh, steel and wood. Each facet of Jon's work presents ephemera that are at once familiar and hallucinatory, dreamlike ruminations anchored in the everyday.
"Acoustic string improvs of great abstraction, clanger and depth, recalling a certain vibe that Loren Connors once called his own, although there's no aping here. Lots of dizzy inventions of clustered strings that manage to maintain a certain melodic beauty for all their weirdness. There are even bits of wobbled slide and sustain that recall Fahey at his loosest. Totally boss."
(Byron Coley, Arthur Magazine)
Natalia Beylis (Ireland)
Born in Kiev, Ukraine and reared in Baltimore, Maryland, Natalia Beylis now lives in a farmhouse in the middle of a woodland in Leitrim, Ireland where she forges compositions built upon the noises that emerge from the deep dark thicket surrounding her home.
Natalia is also the founding member of the mighty Woven Skull. When not shredding the mandolin with Woven Skull, Natalia also plays in Divil A’ Bit and Three Eyed Makara. Natalia has done collaborations and improvisational performances with Agathe Max, Aine O’Dwyer, Tor Invocation Band and United Bible Studies amongst others.
Her solo live set on this evening will be her spacey electric piano in stereo set.
Aonghus is a composer, improviser and guitar player based in Dublin. He explores the intersections between composition and improvisation, oblique restraint and histrionic rock excess. Aonghus' work moves between collaborations with improvisers, indeterminate scores for small ensembles and skewed takes on folk idioms. His use of the guitar ranges from employing traditional techniques to experimental methods. Aonghus has performed with musicians such as Rhodri Davies, Annette Krebs, Ludo Mich, Damo Suzuki, David Maranha, Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh, Tristan Clutterbuck, Adam Pultz Melbye and David Lacey. He is also a member of fabricated folk troupe Woven Skull.
