Rainy Day Woman

 

Recently signed to Pear O’ Legs records, Americana duo Rainy Day Woman play sparse, unhurried music. Expect rich vocal harmonies, acoustic guitars, banjo and mandolin; original songs of desire, betrayal, pub lore and feminist rage. ‘The equivalent of waking up from a wet and weary February to the sun dancing on the walls of your room’, Fem Folk UK.

 

Trio of Men

 

Trio of Men are municipal song-makers; all glorious asymmetric rhythms, strange headgear, mis-spent harmonies and the joy of living. They have been making songs in care homes, hospitals, schools, fields, libraries, bus shelters and with non-traditional community choir The Choral Engineers. Sometimes you can dance, sometimes you can try, but find that you don’t have seven legs. 

They are the house band for the FRANK Water charity and have been heard/observed writing instant festival songs with strangers & friends at Womad, Cornbury & End of the Road.

Three-part harmonies, loops, scattergun improvisations and much more besides.
