Aces and Eights, Tufnell Park
Thursday 15th November
Doors 7:30pm, Live Music 8:00pm
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.
Brown Boots! is Will Allen on melodeon and Martin Clarke on fiddle. Their musical background is rooted in playing music for dancing, as well as gaining inspiration from playing with their many talented musical friends at festivals and pub sessions across the country
Roary Skaista is an Oxford-based folk musician, performing traditional folk songs as well as their own material on the themes of love, nature and diversity. Both in their singing and in their guitar accompaniment, Roary strives to keep an authentic folk sound, whilst simultaneously trying to bring something new to traditional songs and challenging audiences on important themes, such as mental health, LGBT+ rights and gender equality.
