Shovel Dance Collective + Quinie / Live in the Fly Tower on Sunday 12th February 2023
After their sold-out Bonfire Night Celebration, Shovel Dance Collective return to the Fly Tower at the Abbeydale Picture House as part of their new album tour.
Shovel Dance Collective are a group of nine musicians brought together by a communal passion for the folk musics of the British Isles, Ireland and beyond. They nurture and synthesise this material with sensibilities drawn from drone, free improvisation, contemporary classical and metal, weaving this through with a deep sense of the ways in which traditional music holds queer histories, proto-feminist narratives and the voices of those who by their labour create the wealth of the world. They are simultaneously traditional and experimental, seeing folk music not as an archaeological artefact to be unearthed, but as a living communal activity, inviting and generous to those it speaks to.
Shovel Dance Collective will be touring for the release of their new album, ‘The Water is the Shovel of the Shore’ that comes out December 1st via Double Dare and Memorials of Distinction.
‘One of the best albums of 2022, if not the last five years‘ Tradfolk
Support comes from Quinie, Glasgow based Scots singer.
Music Genres: Acoustic, Alternative, Experimental, Folk
