The Local Presents Josienne Clarke + Great Western The Local Presents
Thursday 14th April 2022
@ Aces And Eights Bar
With his eco-conscious debut album ‘Silent Spring’, Henry Parker laid down a new sound for modern folk music, drawing deep from the well of the sixties and seventies revival. His style is a clear joining of the past and the present, a unique voice in the folk world that echoes with sounds of the tradition, whilst venturing beyond, into the realms of folk-rock and psych.
Erawan is the project of London based Hattie Marsh. The past years have seen her play over a hundred shows, from small local grassroot pubs to big capacity venues like Shepherd’s Bush Empire and festivals like Glastonbury and Meltdown, where she was personally booked to perform by The Cure ́s frontman Robert Smith. She is also a regular act at Sofar Sounds and has played around the UK and Europe as well as in her native Thailand.
Live performances have been described as “painting with her voice” and “theatrical”, where she half sings and half talks to tell a story.
For nigh-on two decades, The Local London has been an ebb and flow affair. A labour of love (and ALL the other emotions) for founder Howard Monk and many (any) of the brilliant folks who have worked at and with The Local, to bring shows and tours together by some of the finest waifs and strays making music at this, that or at any other of those times. Before The Local there was Knom Music. There was nothing at all for a time (which neatly coincided with a global pandemic). Some acts who have passed through the revolving door that we are, you may have subsequently seen headlining festivals or arenas. Stadiums even. Most of the folks who have worked with us have similarly gone on to great things.
The Local is back for 2022, dipping some toes back into the water. Because the water is just lovely. And we can’t wait to get our heads wet, all over again.
Rooted in Live Music, THE LOCAL has been an independent promoter of exciting new music and events for approaching 20 years. Always working with the finest artists and venues to ensure amazing and compelling events happen.
The Local have promoted their own festival events Europe-wide as well as working closely with other festivals helping to curate including CAMP BESTIVAL, WILDERNESS, SECRET GARDEN PARTY, END OF THE ROAD etc as well as curating a number of sold out events at Aces & Eights and across London as part of their End Festival.
