Vivienne and Lynzy are a superb live experience and a fun evening is guaranteed.

Friday September 13 FARA

FARA played at the hotel in December 2018.

The gig was a slow burner.

It was almost pure old school word of mouth.

Anyone I came into contact with I said “you need to see this band, if you miss them you’ll be mad with yourself!”. And so it proved.

Also, everyone who was there raved about the musicianship and the energy of these four hugely talented ladies.

This set will be very different from the Christmas one.

Expect selections from the band’s two albums and, as always, something unexpected!

Sunday October 6 The Orphan Brigade

The Orphan Brigade was founded by Ben Glover, Neilson Hubbard and Joshua Britt. The group’s first album Soundtrack To A Ghost Story was written, recorded and filmed in a haunted Civil War house in Kentucky.

In 2017 they spent time in 2500-year-old-caves in the Italian city of Osimo, writing and recording Heart Of The Cave. No Depression called it ‘an extraordinary album’ in which the songs explored themes of mysticism and personal transformation.

The Orphan Brigade’s latest album album will be released in the autumn of 2019.

American Roots UK described the Orphan Brigade as “tugging at the heartstrings, is of-ten uplifting, includes gorgeous melodies, great vocals and playing, brilliant arrangements and atmospheres that flow between deep, dark and spooky, as well as eerie and haunting with occasional flashes of light.

Sunday November 10 Kim Richey

Kim’s roots in Nashville have honed her own songwriting craft. Her trademark is her ability to interpret a lyric and harmonize, all the while writing songs with an optimistic melancholy quality that is unusual and alluring. Comparisons to Shawn Colvin have run rampant over the years, due to Kim’s cleverly twisting lyrical phrases and beats. Kim’s most recent album, Edgeland, featured cameos from Robyn Hitchcock and Chuck Prophet. After a sold out event in 2018, we are delighted to see Kim return to the Woodside!
