This is an advance ticket only gig. The Winemakers is a stunningly atmospheric candle-lit stone arch in the vaults of Holborn Viaduct, three minutes walk from Farringdon tube station, attached to a beautiful independently run wine, whiskey & craft beer bar.

May Gibbs, singer and singwriter with indie-electronica act Vaults, is currently finishing an electronic album of dark folktales under the name ‘Mesadorm’- she’s a writer of beautiful piano based songs, a strikingly original songwriter possessed of a stunning voice of huge range and emotion. You’ll hear echoes of Kate Bush, Bjork, and Martha Wainwright in the background of her songs. Above all else though, you’ll hear the startling sound of a truly exciting new voice in contemporary British music. At The Winemakers she has been invited to curate and host this candlelit evening, she’ll be joined by friendfs and cohorts Apple Of My Eye and Dear Robot.

Apple of my Eye are a folk band from Bristol, now living in London UK. Their music is a blend of influences drawn from English folk and storytelling, using intriguing, lyrically rich songs with multi-part vocal harmonies and traditional folk instruments. Their charismatic shows can be found around London and at festivals.

“a work of considerable wit and imagination … totally unique, quite unlike anything else you’ll hear this year” — Folk Radio UK

.

“These are more than songs sung to tunes … there’s an unvarying, symbiotic fusion as vocals and instruments feed off each other to create songs with space and depth.” — Folk Words

.

.

Dear Robot, from London, cite their current influences as Electronic Pop, Postmodernist Minimalism & Renaissance French Chansons- they mischievously assure us next month their ever changing inspirations are likely to be equally pretentious! The dark subject matter of their songs is balanced by their positivity in performance- they open tonight’s show, onstage at 7.30 pm.
