Allison Sleator is a contemporary and folk singer. She has performed and collaborated with legendary figures such as Ireland’s well-known producer, composer and renowned bouzouki player, Donal Lunny, founder of historic bands such as Moving Hearts, Planxty and The Bothy Band, singer songwriter Declan O’Rourke and world renowned Irish band The Chieftains, among others. She has spent the last three years exploring South American Folklore and music and currently blends sounds of modern songwriting, traditional folk and Peruvian magic into her set.
Lila Tristram’s songs are delicate and compelling. Addressing themes of humanity, femininity, nature and politics, her style makes use of rich chords as a platform for her warm and sensitive voice.
Her love of the 70s folk revival movement is clearly present in her music, and she is often compared to the likes of Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell as well as contemporary songwriters such as Bon Iver and Aldous Harding.
