Hark! on Friday 22nd November 2019

Hark! The sound of stories.

An evening of music inspired by tales from times past.

Historical. Mythological. Folkological.

Fill your ears and your souls with songs of stagmen, golden apples, coiners, diamond rings and murder for love. History is darker than you think.

Featuring performances from:


Presenting music inspired by the award winning novel The Gallows Pole by Ben Myers.
Haunting harmonies and beautiful folk fusion, interspersed with readings from the book.

Written on the edge of the Northern English moors and using rural folk musicians, loops and electronics, their debut album is a heady brew of gritty landscape hymns, ethereal acid-folk, borderlands ballads, 70s folk horror atmospherics, moor-top drones and much, much more.


Bringing their unique rock approach to the murder ballads and killer tales of old, the Whitby based duo take the tradition of folk music back to the dark heart of the lonesome woods. Formed through a shared love of folk songs and with a healthy disregard for the gatekeepers of folk, they sing beautiful songs about murder, enduring love and unbearable heartbreak vibrate and pulse with visceral humanity and truth.


A group of songwriters, storytellers and musicians who have their roots all over the North East of England and Northern Ireland. Creating music that is a celebration of storytelling, their concept album ‘Wake for the Dreaming’ is based on the graphic novel ‘World’s End’ by Neil Gaiman. Be prepared to be swept away by the beautiful, ambitious and eventful result. Ethereal, delightfully off-kilter, and mesmerising.
