Tonight at The Musician: Kyle Carey + Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker

Greenbird Promotions presents...

Kyle Carey + Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker
Tuesday 7th May
Kyle Carey is playing as part of her first UK tour.  She describes her music as “Gaelic Americana”.  It includes elements of the American Folk Anthology, influences from Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton traditional music, and the Appalachian poetry of Louise McNeill.   Her debut album “Monongah”, released in 2011 and showcasing her beautiful pure voice and superb writing, hit just about every Year’s Best list that matters.  Songs like the Southern snake handler story “Adenine” and the haunting title track live long in the memory.

Josienne Clarke has a voice that has been justifiably compared to Sandy Denny’s, to which Ben Walker’s intricate and understated acoustic guitar playing is the perfect accompaniment. She is the current holder of the Fatea Female Vocalist of the Year award and together they won the 2012 Isambarde Folk Award.  They have supported everyone from Martin Simpson to Mary Hampton and are rapidly making a name for themselves on the UK folk scene.

Josienne & Ben have recorded a new EP with Kyle that will be available at this show.
