Green Mind presents HALEY HEYNDERICKX

“Loner that she is, Heynderickx tends to turn her incisive gaze inward, writing from the feelings in her heart and the visions in her head. When other people do surface in her songs, they appear almost as faceless silhouettes—like in the aptly titled “No Face,” where an aloof partner leaves Heynderickx to wonder what about her is so wrong. “Jo” names its subject, but captures her in uncertain terms, with only the tense of the lyrics suggesting that she’s no longer around. Heynderickx demurs when it comes to the specifics, instead using metaphorical language to capture Jo through the fuzzy, romantic lens of memory: Her kindness was “like honeycomb holding the bee in the folds.”

More animate are the characters Heynderickx invents to keep herself company. In her “Untitled God Song,” she imagines her creator as a vision in knockoff Coach, conjuring sunsets when she forgets to shut off her headlights. Heynderickx writes here with an expansive, inclusive understanding of feminine perfection that feels uplifting, even if the theism that frames it is inaccessible to some listeners. The specimens that populate “The Bug Collector” are among her most imaginative: a vindictive centipede, a priest reincarnated as a praying mantis, and a grumpy millipede, personified by brass voices that banter with Heynderickx’s spry guitar as she tries to remove them from her home, lest they ruin her loved one’s “perfect morning.”” Pitchfork

Carousel +Chris Fox

‘Carousel’, based in Essex will be appearing at Cambridge Folk Festival 2018 and returning to the area as part of a small UK headline tour

“Honestly one of the most thought provoking sets

From an unsignedband that I’ve ever seen.”

– Ollie Winiberg, BBC Introducing

 

Carousel formed in 2015 after four established musicians and friends came together with one goal – to spread their stories and passion through their unique, captivating and emotional music. Their eclectic blend of Indie-Americana exudes influences such as the lyrical power of Bob Dylan and the energy and delivery of The Lone Bellow. Their brand of heartfelt, engaging music is breathing new life into venues all over the UK as the band begins to spread their gospel.

With support from Chris Fox

Green Mind presents LAURA VEIRS

https://lauraveirs.com/

“It may have been five years since her last album, 2013’s Warp and Weft, but Oregon-based singer-songwriter Laura Veirs has not been idle. As well as case/lang/veirs, 2016’s collaboration with kd lang and Neko Case, she has been raising two small children and hosting a regular podcast in which she discusses with her fellow musicians the trials of juggling work and family.

Veirs’s 10th solo album is perhaps her most satisfying yet, the deceptively simple songs sketched out on acoustic guitar or piano (the lovely The Meadow is particularly minimalist) and subtly embellished by her band and producer husband, Tucker Martine. Lyrically, there’s a theme of making the most of adversity: opener Margaret Sands is a profoundly moving lament seemingly for a friend who has died, yet whose memory lives on in the sounds of the sea (“now she’s married to the swell”). There’s a dreamlike quality to it, evoking Julia Holter. Elsewhere, When It Grows Darkest looks for glimmers of hope amid the Trump nightmare, and Heavy Petals is a salute to David Bowie. Best of all is Seven Falls, on which regret-laced childhood reminiscences are set to Jon Hyde’s pedal steel.” The Guardian

The Ouse Valley Singles Club
Oct 19 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

East Anglia’s favourite Skiffle Band The Ouse Valley Singles Club return to Cambridge’s favourite Independent music venue for a 3rd time.

Well known around Cambridge and Strawberry Fayre favourites return for another headline show.

If you are not familiar with The Ouse Valley Singles Club or have yet to catch their live show then you are in for a treat. They are one of, if not the, most original outfits currently playing the live circuit.

Fully self-promoted with the aid of their online videos and huge social media presence, the Ouse Valley Singles Club are one of the hardest working bands around, having gigged almost every weekend over the last two years honing their craft and building a massive following of loyal Fans as they go.

Influenced by the long forgotten sounds & traditions of 1950’s Skiffle (Google it) they combine this sound with the energy of Punk and the swing of Rock and Roll, whilst occasionally dropping some Reggae flavour into the mix. Then layering this with hilarious Folk-like story-telling, often crossing the parameters of what is deemed to be politically correct but keeping it very tongue in cheek. In doing this, they have created a truly original & highly entertaining sound that has been dubbed “New Wave Skiffle” and they have been described as ‘George Formby meets The Clash’ where Vaudeville music Hall meets Working Men’s club.

‘The scourge of the Metropolitan Liberal Elite’ The OVSC put on a show that gives a hysterical observational account of every day tales of woe with a razor sharp observational narrative whilst rocking the crowds with their infectious ear-worms.

Having packed out the main arena’s to capacity, they have headlined Peterborough Beer Festival and opened to several thousand revellers on the main stage at Bedford’s River Festival (second largest free festival in the UK). As well as being a regular feature at events such as Cambridge’s Strawberry Fair, The OVSC are no strangers to the Festival Circuit. Festivals they have performed at are; Boomtown, Bestival, Rhythmtree, Nozstock, Mosley Folk and Lunar Festival, Truckfest, Rhythms of The World festival, Lodestar, Henry’s Little Big Gig, Harlequin Festival, Maui Waui, Green Meadows and Glastonbudget among many others.

Highlights of their musical journey came when they supported luminaries Chas and Dave on their 2014 tour, warmed up for Sir Bob Geldolf and The Boomtown Rats in the main arena at the Great British Alternative Music Weekender at Butlin’s Skegness as well as providing warm up for the likes of Pete Docherty, The Wonderstuff and the poetical musical comedy genius KATG. Clearly illustrating their flexibility and appeal to audiences of all ages and musical backgrounds going down a storm and building their following at every gig they play.
