Tell Tale Tusk + Solana + DJ Joplin Parnell

September 1, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - September 2, 2017 @ 2:00 am

£5 – £8

 

Inspired by World Music, Folk and Jazz, Tell Tale Tusk‘s unique performance of ruthlessly entertaining original material weaves twisted tales and tall stories around their signature three-part vocal harmonies. An evening with Tell Tale Tusk will take you on a journey through wyrd worlds, macabre imaginings and fantastical tableaus.

 

 

 

With their polyrhythmic folk-world fusion, Solana have made quite a splash on the music and festival scene across the UK and in their adopted hometown of Bristol. Somehow managing to appeal to discerning sit-down audiences and lively festival crowds, Solana have been enthusing and confusing listeners with their rhythmically complex and harmonically rich sound.

Formed in Valencia in 2012 as an itinerant acoustic folk trio, the band has developed almost beyond recognition through extensive touring and collaboration. Tamsin (flute/accordion) and Rowen (violin) weave together folk- and klezmer-inspired melodies which soar over a tight rhythm section. Elio’s Latin, African and reggae influenced drumming and Alex’s flamenco/folk/jazz guitar are locked together by Henry’s dynamic basslines.

 

 

Joplin Parnell spins a motley mix of rhythm & blues grooves and rollocking baselines… Brass band sounds and swampy soul from the deep south combined with hot swing rhythms, psychedelic Afrobeat, boogaloo and music from all four corners of the world, anything and everything so long as it’s got that funk to make you move your junk!
