LIANNE HALL (folk, elec UK)
Described as 'one of the great English voices' by DJ John Peel, and having performed no fewer than five Peel sessions, Hall's songs are beautiful small stories drawing from her punk past, and arriving at a sweet spot between folk and americana, sometimes augmented with driving electronics.
is the project of james hedges, who after leaving both the UK and his band lord magpie and the prince of cats, has been residing in Hong Kong recording these lofi melancholic pop songs, played on guitars keys and whatever instruments are to hand. His songs have a rare humour and odd beauty, like a bathtub lou reed.
is a harpist, guitarist and singer, performing songs that shift between times, textures and themes over bracing weird and beautiful fingerpicked guitar and harp. This is his last Berlin show before performing at the Fanø Free Folk festival in Denmark.
