Faeland are a folk-inspired acoustic heart-pop quartet. Fusing deep folk tradition with acoustic instrumentation, Faeland bring their innovative & subtly experimental approach to contemporary folk music; all with a mystical Celtic edge.

Their recently released debut album ‘All My Swim’, gained much critical acclaim and became a favourite of BBC 6Music & BBC Introducing.

Songs will be performed on an all acoustic line up of violins, lush vocals, banjo, charango, acoustic guitars, double bass, accordion & Celtic harp.

'Without doubt one of the albums of the year [2018]. All My Swim is surprising, never complacent. Just like the best music should be ' Shire Folk

“A really fabulous band making glorious folk music” - Sam Bonham, BBC Introducing

'Ethereal acoustic stylings' - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

'Throughout, Faeland exhibit a soft, measured assurance in the performances and a rich, inviting warmth in the production. All My Swim is a debut that does far more than impress, it delights.' - Folk Radio UK, 2018

'Beautiful' - Kathleen MacInnes , BBC Radio Scotland

'Sweet sumptuous folk music' - Richard Pitt, BBC South West

“A really fabulous band making glorious folk music” - Sam Bonham, BBC Introducing

“A very impressive debut...Highly recommended, fifty minutes of gentle, carefully-crafted quality sounds. It is an album to escape into and become part of; somehow it seems removed from the normal time stream….” Cambridge Music Reviews

'An album of subtleties and understatement, of deftly and lightly woven musical threads... worldly and often otherworldly. .. if this is not way up the [Top Albums of 2018] list then it will have been an unimaginably spectacular year for music.' Dave Franklin, Dancing About Architecture

'Ethereal acoustic stylings' - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

'★★★★★★★ Bright, optimistic melodies' - Uncut Magazine

'Beautiful...modern folk songs underpinned with some classic writing' - Songwriting Magazine

'A collection of original songs that sit equally comfortably on the seats of tradition and innovation' - C. Elland, FolkWords

FAELAND will be supported by the incredible ...

OLIVIA VAN DORT
Visceral, earthy, ethereal soundscapes with hang drum, shruti and voice. Sensual love poems from earth to the earth. Ancient Polish life songs that plait heart cords and blow life into our lungs.

Combining song and mediative melodic soundscape, Olivia weaves story, song and poetry. Transporting you out of yourself and taking you home.

Something that rests between a concert and a sound-bath. Bring your heart to where it longs to rest. When music meets story and deep remembering happens with enchantment.
