Cinder Well live in Ballyseedy Church

Cinder Well live in Ballyseedy Church

Thursday, 24 November 2022, 7.30pm

We’re delighted to present Californian musician Cinder Well in the sublime surrounds of Ballyseedy Church, with support from Yorkshire alt.folk experimentalist Jim Ghedi.

Cinder Well is at the vanguard of a different kind of transatlantic folk revival, one forged amidst the uncertainty of a global pandemic. However, Irish-based songwriter Amelia Baker’s music isn’t nihilistic; instead, it strips traditional forms to their bones, creating a meditative, trance-like space for sonic healing. The sparse soundscapes and haunting stillnesses of her new album No Summer (on Free Dirt Records) are not meant to be paens to loneliness. Rather, Baker was inspired by the rich musical connectivity of the pub scene in Ireland, and her move from California to County Clare to study traditional music of the region.

Jim Ghedi hails from Sheffield, South Yorkshire and although clearly well versed in the history of Folk music, he stands out as a potential torch bearer for a new generation of respectful yet experimental performers.

The venue for this concert is Ballyseedy Church of Ireland Church, a freestanding double-height Gothic Revival style church built c. 1870,

This event is supported by Kerry County Council through their Arts Act Grant and Community Support Fund.
