CROOKED WEATHER & LUNATRAKTORS double bill
11th May 2019
Based out of a tragic mustard coloured 1979 campervan, East-Yorkshire, Crooked Weather play rock infused folk music. The sound is lead by carefully crafted lyrics delivered by the lilting harmonies of Holly and Will. Their original music, although steeped in the folk revival of the 60’s and 70’s, has a raw, modern edge and is augmented by fierce rhythms and syncopated cello.
With a new album in tow, due for release in Spring 2019, Crooked Weather are keeping up their fuzz folk momentum with choice live shows and strong single releases.
“Crooked Weather come from the same fertile ground which gave the world David Crosby’s immortal If I Could Only Remember My Name. They are indie meets World music meets traditional British folk. Think a contemporary Incredible String Band with a 21st century mindset or the acoustic side of Led Zeppelin.”– Sid Griffin (Bob Dylan Biographer // BBC Radio 6 Music)
LUNATRAKTORS... Margate's 'broken folk' duo strip folk back to its bare bones of rhythm and voice. Weaving in influences from flamenco, hiphop and jazz, Lunatraktors rework 19th century street ballads into a "spellbinding" contemporary form.
