On Friday 28th of July Tenderlore and Stables will be taking over our lounge bar for a double bill show!
Music will be kicking off at 8.30pm sharp. A lovely evening of alt-folk music and it’s free entry, what more could you ask for?
Tenderlore are Hayley McDonnell, Olly Lewis and Rob Kitney; an alternative folk trio of three individual songwriting voices working seamlessly together.
Their melodic approach to folk music is centred around their intricate three part vocal harmonies, accompanied by a finely woven blend of acoustic instruments. Since their formation in 2014, Tenderlore have been gigging widely across the UK and Ireland, at festivals and folk clubs, and have supported a number of acclaimed artists including Spiro, Brother & Bones, Lindisfarne and Martin Simpson. All three members contribute songs, rooted in folk but with an engaging pop sensibility, drawing influences from artists like Crosby, Stills and Nash, Laura Marling, Fleet Foxes and Richard Thompson. Released in 2015, their eponymous debut album sees the trio augmenting their sound with drums, bass and strings.
From singer/songwriter Matthew Lowe (Keston Cobblers’ Club) and Daniel Rymer Trenholme (The Lost Cavalry) comes their new project Stables.
The duo put an emphasis on energy when playing live, with multiple instruments and filling the sound of a full band. Stables is a duo, but with the inclusion of notable musicians at shows and addition of a full orchestra in many recordings, the range of sound can vary hugely. Matthew says; ‘I always wanted to create a simple sound, that could then be taken further when needed. From a small folk club, to a large festival stage, Stables is for 2 people who love to compose and perform, but it’s not exclusive. Our goal is to fit in wherever we may play and by doing so, we embrace the idea of change from set to set, track to track with the underlining principle that we enjoy ourselves and the audience enjoy themselves. It’s simple and that keeps it fun’.
