The breakthrough folk act of last year, the brilliant Stick In The Wheel are a raw and uncompromising London folk band. Brought up in the thriving culture of working class East London and cutting their teeth at the forefront of the early grime/dubstep scene, they bring those influences and attitudes to their traditional music- the songs are roughed up down dark alleys with lyrics that are direct, honest, and caustic, and at the same time eloquently poetic.
.
Last year was quite a year for Stick In The Wheel, they were fROOTS Magazine’s Album of 2015 winners, 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Nomination Horizon Award for Best Emerging Act, 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Nomination Best Traditional Track, FATEA Magazine 2015 Best Debut Album winners, 2015 Spiral Earth Nomination Best Debut for Bones EP and are favourites of Tom Robinson on 6Music and XFM’s Jon Kennedy, having recorded sessions for both. This year they have added a double nomination for the Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016, Bets Group and Best Traditional Track.
.
The band is spearheaded by Nicola Kearey’s fierce uncompromising vocal delivery, accompanied by Fran Foote’s harmony vocal and underpinned by sparse taut arrangements featuring Ian Carter on dobro, Si Foote on percussion and Joolie Wood on fiddle. They specialise in distinctly London-centric, rarely heard traditional British folk songs. Their repertoire includes pieces up to 400 years old, and they seamlessly combine this deep link to the past with their own compositions. Their music is sparklingly original, fiercely fresh and fearless in it’s attitude.

A truly exciting and original new talent in British music, Jinnwoo is a young folk musician from Brighton- The Independent listed him as one of their 10 acts to watch for 2015. His sound is sparse folk, with intense and unique vocals that the Guardian described as a ” gothic folk-croak…unspooling from his innards,”. Undoubtedly a folk artist, his reach expands beyond the confines of the genre- supports to Alt-J, Ghostpoet, Lucy Rose, Jeffrey Lewis, Willy Mason, Kyla La Grange, Frank Fairfield, Robert Ellis and Alasdair Roberts give an indication of his appeal. He was also recently invited to play at Cecil Sharpe House as a celebration of the new folk generation.

…full of emotion and a stripped back grace that feels completely alien to everything else around at the moment. It’s rustic and aged in influence’ Clash Magazine –

The enigmatic Men Diamler has been described as the disputed offspring of Iggy Pop, Jacques Brel and John Otway. He has been called a freak-folk rock’n’roller, thrilling, terrifying and outrageous. He has shared stages with Billy Childish, Hawk and a Hacksaw, Micah P Hinson, Pictish Trail, Katie Tunstall, Rozi Plain, Toni Allen and many many more.
.
‘Mr. Diamler’s music seems to carve its initials somewhere between Son House & Syd Barrett on the musical park-bench. That said, this is fiery and unapologetic music that lives in a fucked up, peculiar world of it’s own. Lopsided folk music that leaps at you, sometimes very literally’ Thora Zine
