Faeland + John Butler on Saturday 27th October 2018

Faeland are a contemporary folk band from Bristol, UK. Fusing deep folk tradition and acoustic instrumentation, they bring their innovative and subtly experimental approach to contemporary music.

The band have recently recorded and released their debut album ‘All My Swim’ which is receiving support and acclaim from BBC 6 Music, Uncut Magazine, Shire Folk Magazine and a host of others.

Their first 2 singles and album have been supported by Tom Robinson and Gideon Coe of BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing and BBC Scotland, to name a few.

Faeland features some of the South’s finest folk musicians, with singer Rebecca Nelson and guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Jacob Morrison at its songwriting and musical core.

The album is performed on an all-acoustic instrumental line up: guitars, beautiful vocals, eclectic percussion (water gourds, thimbles, candlesticks and even an old CD rack), cello, clarinet, double bass, violin, accordion and Celtic harp.

With nature and humanity’s relationship to the natural world being such a big inspiration for Faeland’s music, Jacob explains their unusual name –”we are named after Failand, a countryside village near us that connects us with the land around our home and our favourite woodland”

The spelling change to “Fae” hints at the magical/mystical/other as well as the transcendental nature of their music.

SUPPORT

John Butler

Bridport local John Butler (aka The Woodlouse) sings songs about life with a healthy sense of the ridiculous. Sample topics include being, time (and its slipperiness), love, moustaches and zombies. Described by a recent gig-goer as having “a beautiful delivery and a slightly wonky brain. This is the best combination!”, John sings with ukulele, and electric and acoustic mandolin.
