Let Psych-A-Rella Live and Shindig! Magazine… the latest! take you on a sonic trip to the west coast of America via Rome, Canada and London. Country, Folk and Psych all combine to create an evening of eclectic aural entertainment at The Victoria on Saturday 2nd March 2019
Blending folk pastoralism with swampy 60s Americana, The Hanging Stars sound like the missing link between the California desert sun and the grey skies of London Town. The Hanging Stars place themselves firmly as part of a long folk tradition encompassing European and North American influences – as a continuation rather than a pastiche of these styles.
The second cousins Kacy & Clayton hail from rural Saskatchewan, where they absorbed knowledge and borrowed instruments from their elders, did their own record collecting, filled in the gaps with obscurities others posted online, and developed their musical voices in tandem, valuing freedom alongside familiarity.
In life and music, emma tricca is an explorer. Just as Davey Graham set sail for Morocco and Vashti Bunyan for the Outer Hebrides in search of their elusive muse, Rome-raised singer-songwriter Tricca has journeyed to London, New York, Texas and further afield to seek the heart of her own music. And like those renowned voyagers, she’s returned with a set of songs that refresh the tired old folk form.
DJs from both Psych-A-Rella Club and Shindig! Magazine will keep the music flowing like pure vinyl ambrosia until 2am.
Tickets £6 in advance or £8 on the door.Source: The Victoria website
