The entrancing psych/folk/improv of the United Bible Studies collective www.desertedvillage.com shows equal love for the unadorned beauty of Shirley Collins and Vashti Bunyan, the electrifried takes of the Incredible String Band, and the darker work of Current 93 and Coil. Sparse folk mixes with a melodic take on free improv, and tales of loss and pagan longing abound. They’ve released 10 albums on labels like Ruralfaune, Barl Fire, Foxglove, and their own Deserted Village. This tour will be their first live appearances in the US.
Twisted folk songs for the new millennium. Her own compositions stand tall beside age-old traditionals from England and Appalachia, and she performs both with a total mastery of the form. Since 2001 she has released five albums on Durtro Jnana, Bo’ Weavil, and Camera Obscura, and has toured extensively in the UK and USA.
New solo project from Norm Fetter of Niagara Falls, and formerly of Golden Ball, mixes free electronic improv with field recordings and live sampling. Deep meditative vibes.
New collaboration between Geoff Bucknam and Rosali Middleman.
