This week sees the start of our brand new series of concerts at Kings Place, London.
Curated by Ian Anderson of fRoots Magazine in association with Alan Bearman Music.
In classical and jazz, the notion of a series of concerts without voices wouldn’t raise an eyebrow, but in the song-centric world of folk and roots music, this is revolutionary. A new wave of folk musicians is changing perceptions with their innovative approaches to form and melody.
‘No Voices’ presents some of the leading lights on this scene. Drawing on traditional music – breathing life into it – these musicians use mesmeric interwoven patterns and improvisation; elegant flow; tension and release, to evoke emotion and images without any need for the human voice. They create a place beyond words.
