Willkommen bands at the Alternative Escape including Eyes & No Eyes, Redwood Red, Emma Gatrill & Laish

Monday, April 30th, 2012

It’s The Great Escape in Brighton next weekend (10th-12th May). There are many Willkommen related bands playing as part of the Alternative Escape on Friday and Saturday, thanks to our friends at Neighbourhood Music. These events are free to wristband-holders and “normals” alike.

Friday 11th May at the Fishbowl (Facebook event here) features Woodpecker Wooliams, Rozi Plain, Emma Gatrill, Eyes & No Eyes and The Mariner’s Children (solo). Plus many more great but less affiliated people including Hot Feet and Sam Brookes.

Saturday 12th May at the Hydrant (Facebook event here) features Redwood Red and Laish plus Emily & The Woods and more.

Both events start super early at midday so set your alarm for 10am latest so you can get some breakfast.

ECHO at the Caxton with Redwood Red, Martha Rose and Emma Gatrill

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Last year’s Foxtrot warmup show with Diane Cluck was such a great success that we’ve decided to stretch out the festivities this year too.

After the success of the Rachael Dadd, Rozi Plain and Ichi show at the Caxton, we couldn’t think of a better place to do it, so prepare yourselves for another completely unamplified, extremely intimate evening of music. We’re calling it ECHO, both to tie it in with the FOXTROT name and to draw attention to the reverent silence in the room.

We have full sets from REDWOOD RED – Cathy Cardin from Sons of Noel and Adrian’s solo project, heartbreakingly delicate and fragile but equally powerful and moving, she has written some of my favourite songs of all time, beautifully harmonised by EMMA GATRILL, who has just completed an album of breathtaking harp songs with contributions from various members of the Willkommen Collective.

She also sings with Sons of Noel and Adrian, as well as playing clarinet and accordion with them and the likes of Rachael Dadd, The Mariner’s Children, Laura Marling and Laish.

Laish violinist MARTHA ROSE, also brings her beautiful duets to the Caxton, following on from an unforgettable surprise set in the woods at last year’s Foxtrot and an amazing set supporting Sons and DANCEHALLS, with whom she also plays.

Also expect lots of collaborations and surprise sets.

ADMITTANCE IS EXTREMELY LIMITED SO BUYING IN ADVANCE IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED: http://www.wegottickets.com/willkommen
