Saturday Afternoon Gig @ Daylight @ Union Chapel with Little Sparrow

"Little Sparrow performing 'The Hunted' live at dock10 TV studios at MediaCityUK, Salford. "

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

Monday update

 

Well we caught up with Little Sparrrow @ Union. Chapel on Saturday and we are very glad we did. Terrific live performance in the perfect venue to showcase the talents of this Manchester based singer and her band . Along with Stefan and. Louis , this gig really opened my eyes to the thriving alternative  music scene in Manchester. Hell fire, if these guys don't return soon, I may well jump on a train and head north to hear them  on their home patch. Something I haven't done for quite a few years. Now that has to be a recommendation. And a suggestion you give their music a play. 

 

--------------------------

 

Escape the Christmas consumer madness and catch Little Sparrow live  @ Daylight Music on Saturday afternoon . As it's the last Daylight this side of Christmas, you are encouraged to turn up in festive apparel.  Darn! Why did we give away that Colin Firth jumper? 

 

MFLL likes the sound of Little Sparrow and will be at this show.. Nothing like the Union Chapel to get  you into the festive spirit. Worth reminding ourselves that this is a free gig, donations welcomed. Over the next few days, MFLL will be listening to the music of the other Manchester artists playing at the gig . But for now, close your eyes to the world outside and listen to Little Sparrow!

Thursday Music Choice: The April Maze - I've Seen The Rain

"I've Seen The Rain will feature on The April Maze Album 'Sleeping Storm' out Feb 2015. Single out now at www.theaprilmaze.com and iTunes. "

 

'Mayhew’s masterful guitar, Agam’s visceral, growling cello and her own dark twisted vocal…mean much of this is a series of inky-black fairy tales.'

Mojo Magazine (4 Star review)

 

“Indie alt-folk, much influenced by the sound (and fashions) of 70s San Francisco, Agam’s voice a rich cocktail of dark molasses and sweet honey.” Folking.com 

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

Another exciting new discovery for MFLL . 

We love this Gower Coast video from Oxford/Melbourne based alt folk duo The April Maze and will definitely be checking out one of their live shows once they go on tour In 2015. They are also available for house concerts. Oh what a night that would be!

The Little Holly Tree - a new Christmas song from Ange Hardy

http://angehardy.com/shop/details/the-little-holly-tree ;

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

What is it about robins? A bird to cherish, a bird that often ties in with childhood memories and is associated with departed loved ones. Its colours blend in so well with the holly tree and the seasonal significance here is linked to a more lasting reflection. There is something so tender in this song, looking out for the vulnerable within the natural world, whilst  reminding us of human vulnerability all around us, often unseen or ignored.

Red Paper Wrapping, by Kaity Rae

From  the newly released album The Christmas Present

 

" Kaity Rae sets the bar pretty high with Red Paper Wrapping, which incidentally is the single from the album and will be released on December 10. Rae's singing on the title track shows you straight away that her voice has depth and emotion there are times she has the vitality of Lily Allen and also she has that unadorned rawness of the pre-punk Kate Nash but has the quality of softness and clarity which has become The Staves trademark....Kaity Rae's slightly gritty, smoky tone is just fantastic. She would probably have been banned by the BBC 40 odd years ago”

 

Danny Farragher, Folkall Blogspot

 

 

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

This is the  single from a new Christmas album with a difference, full of youthful vigour and contemporary reflection. Kaity Rae is just seventeen year's old and is already attracting media attention. One to watch, for sure.

It's like the London  buses! You wait ages to see one unmissable Manchester based talent and then several come along at the same time.

 

T G Elias will be in Leytonstone tomorrow night performing at the Wed night What's Cookin'.

 

 

Also performing on the night, Curst Sons.. love that name ..what a great way to  get the circulation going ...get your bluegrass on, folks.

 

"A gallon of bluegrass, a quart of the blues, a pinch of rockabilly, and a dash of hell fire! The Curst Sons have been playing their powerful stripped back take on early American traditional music since 1998. Performing mainly original material with a few distinctive arrangements of traditional songs they have released five albums on their own Curst Mountain label, played venues ranging from tiny country pubs to festival main stages, and recorded two live sessions for Mark Lamarr on BBC Radio 2."

 "Got everybody jumpin'...a great band"  JOHNNIE WALKER BBC RADIO 2


"Their biggest appeal is that they manage to stay true to American folk musics rich lineage, while throwing in enough 
curve balls to p*ss off the folk puritanicals"   AMERICANA UK"

 

Their unique rugged version of American roots music has a delightfully dirt-road quality to it"  R2 MAGAZINE
