Angeline Morrison is a folk singer, songwriter, arranger, multi-instrumentalist, soul singer and morris dancer. She is developing an album called The Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs of the Black British Experience. Angeline’s vision is of a UK folk scene that recognises the historic black presence in these islands, and that also fully acknowledges the intertwining of Black History with British History. This vision weaves itself subtly through all her work.

Believing in the inherent beauty of sad songs, Angeline weaves the folk, soul and beat pop sounds of the ’60s into a tapestry of the human heart. Sounds like solitude, or pastoral, or nostalgia.

Bity Booker is an Italian/Australian folk singer and illustrator based in London. Her songs are mostly voice and classical guitar with a few whimsical touches such as bells, musical saw, and sparrow sounds, but the effect is mystical, mainly due to Bity’s precise, hypnotic fingerpicking style and elastic voice.

Her music brings subtle strains of the 1960s psychedelic magic and genuine and original storytelling. Be prepared to delve deep into Bity Booker’s musical world and listen to fantastic stories, each song a character with a timeless personality and melody.
