Sam Lee: album launch

The forthcoming album from the Nest's founder Sam Lee, a work several years in conception which brings together a multitude of experiences and influences for a musician who has cut an unique course in his artistic development. This 8-track release with mixes done by the legendary John Wood (of Nick Drake fame) comprises material gleaned from years of research and exploration into the forgotten songs and sounds of these Isles. ?Ground Of Its Own' brings together songs directly learned from English Gypsy and Irish and Scottish Traveller communities until now unheard in the wider music world.

Wednesday 27 June _at_ Old Queens Head, 44 Essex Road, London N1 8LN- ?6 adv - ?8 otd

Seamus Cater and Viljam Nybacka

Coming from a family of English folk singers, Seamus Cater carries the torch from a contemporary perspective. Having spent twelve years as a member of the eclectic Amsterdam music scene and four years previously in Manchester, he injects new subject matter, arrangement and orchestration to these traditional roots.

Born in a small town in Finland and brought up in a vibrant atmosphere of many musical influences, Viljam Nybacka's musical development progressed through classical and electric guitar. He moved to Amsterdam to study electric bass and soon became a member of the highly esteemed N-Collective.

Special unmiked intimate performance with 50 tickets only

After first playing around an old Edinburgh kitchen table in 2003, Fribo have become experts in finding subtle ways of exchanging traditions whilst expressing them anew; with an exuberant feel for contemporary sounds and rhythms. Described by Celtic Connections Festival as "?one of the freshest and most inventive acts on the emerging ?Nu-Nordic' scene?"
Today after honing their musical explorations through five years' touring experience and a very well received debut album, Fribo is rapidly gaining recognition and acclaim.

Sz?szcs?v?s Band

Special unmiked intimate performance with 50 tickets only
Sz?szcs?v?s is a small village located in the Kis-Kukullo River valley of Transylvania, in Romania. The majority of the village's 900 inhabitants are Hungarians, with 20% Gypsies. The core of the Sz?szcs?v?s Band being brought to you in London is the pr?m?s (lead fiddle) J?mbor Istv?n whose nickname is Dumnezeu (or God in Romanian), and Cs?nyi S?ndor on fiddle, his son Alin playing kontra, and Alin's brother Sanyika on double-bass. In addition to their main instruments, most of the musicians also play the other instruments well and are usually outstanding dancers. Most of them make their living by playing music and if we are lucky enough that they will also demonstrate some of their dancing skills at the gig.

Friday 29 June _at_ Maneros Bar, London, 232 Kingsland Road, London E2 8AX - ?10 adv - ?12 otd
