Two of the country's up and coming folk bands will be wending their way from London town to Cornwall for a run of shows over the last few days of April and the first weekend of May. Join them at The Harrison for their big city send-off.Jez Hellard & The Djukella OrchestraPotent songs, fiery fiddles, silky double-bass and smoking harmonicas.A singer of potent songs, stunning harmonica player and fine guitarist, Jez thrives on music of all stripes. His band, The Djukella Orchestra play traditional and contemporary folk music, from jigs and reels to tango and rhumba. The word Djukella is a common insult in the Balkans, meaning mongrel, and goes some way to describe the mixed provenance both of the music and the musicians themselves.Nye Parsons is a virtuoso double-bassist with a lyrical style which will have you craning your neck for a better view. He's played with countless bands over a 30 year career and has worked with Jez since 2006.Fiddlers James Patrick Gavin, from London, Zoe Moffat from Vancouver and Alastair Caplin from the Isle of Lewis, known for his work with The John Langan Band, provide the top end, sometimes one at a time, sometimes two, depending on logistics; moving seamlessly between celtic, bluegrass and manouche styles and weaving a fine tapestry of sound.Since returning to the UK from Asia in 2005, Jez has played more than 750 gigs; from Vancouver to Istanbul, New York to Taipei; from Glastonbury Festival to Canada's North Country Fair, Macedonia's Pivoland and Taiwan's Migration Music Festival."If you take your folk infusion wide, varied and without restraint then you're going to love this. Jump in and let the current sweep you along." - Dan Holland, Folkwords Magazine"Jez Hellard demonstrated that playing harmonica is a full on body experienceWith fans across 3 continents, It was easy to see and hear what all the hullaballoo was about." - Earshot Magazine, Canadawww.jezhellard.comTEYRCutting edge London folk trio with Cornish roots"Highly evocative, terrific music."Forged amongst the hustle and bustle of North London's folk scene, Teyr ("3 in the Cornish language) are a trio of players who showcase the many sounds of the British Isles. With roots running from Ireland to Wales to Cornwall, James Gavin(guitar and fiddle), Dominic Henderson (uilleann pipes) and Tommie Black-Roff (accordion) capture the hybridity of contemporary life within traditional music, injecting it with a shot of youth and transform. Having met on the Trad music scene through late night sessions, each performer holds an intuitive sense of folk music, evident in their deft new arrangements of fiery tunes and songs as well as original material.Influenced by neo-folk groups such as Lau, Kan and Lnasa, the trio are a force to be reckoned with, particularly in a live setting. And with high-drama, high-energy and high-jinx, their performances will remain stamped on the audience's minds for a long-time after.www.teyr.co.uk5.00 + 0.50 Booking fee = 5.5048 tickets availableAll ages
