Elizabeth & Jameson and Feorin at Independent Venue Week
Doors: 7:30 pm - 11:45 pm
Elizabeth & Jameson is an award-winning collaboration comprising two rising stars of the UK acoustic music scene. Hannah Elizabeth and Griff Jameson have joined forces to create an indie-folk sound which encompasses both their individual musical backgrounds. Hannah’s influences are firmly planted in traditional folk-roots, whilst in contrast Griff has formed his musical reputation within folk pop/rock genres. Together as a duo Elizabeth & Jameson arguably offer the best of both backgrounds; this is simplistic, classic song writing at its best – a stripped back harmony-driven sound with acoustic guitar, violin and exquisite harmony vocals.
As well as securing high-profile support slots on the UK folk/acoustic circuit the duo have built up a strong following after spending the last few years touring folk and acoustic clubs and venues across the UK. Their debut studio album, Northern Shores & Stories was officially released in May 2020 and has been receiving critical acclaim across the acoustic folk/roots community.
Feorin seeks to sing the stories that never made it into the history books, and to be a soundtrack to our magical conversation with the natural world. Formed in 2019 in the chilly, reverberant space of the Chapel at St Margaret’s House in London, the band had only been playing for a few months when the pandemic hit. Collaborating remotely, they made their debut playing a virtual set at Bowes Park Folk Club, and continued to build their repertoire and support each other through the lockdown. After being reunited, they have played at various venues around North London, including the Leytonstone Unplugged festival, the opening of Leytonstone Folk Club, and Aces & Eights (organised by Folkandroots).
Combining the vocal and songwriting talents of all four members of the band, a distinctive instrumental blend of dulcimer, guitar, fiddle and percussion, and roots reaching from the mountains of Asturias to the North Norfolk Coast, Feorin brings you a range of foot-stomping tunes and narrative songs that will stay with you.
