Maia

Don't Miss Out
Time: Tuesday 7.00pm
Cost: £10 Advance

A genre busting mix of sweet stunning vocal harmonies over funky blissed out grooves; punctuated by echoing banjo, guitar, shimmering mandolins, spooky brass and keyboards.

Self proclaimed ‘Sci-fi folk’ evangelists Maia formed in 2009 as experimental acoustic alchemists playing whatever instruments were lying around.

After touring and playing festivals over the last four years and releasing two albums the band have built a steady loyal following.

“An early contender for performance of the day came from Yorkshire’s Maia. Billed as sci-fi folk, they played a wonderful set of psychedelic folk tinged tunes that concluded with the spooky and sinister Voodoo Dreams. The relentless bass and rolling and hypnotic melody was quite stunning”
Louder Than War

“youthful, spirited, richly atmospheric and intelligently off-centre alt.folk pop” Time Out

“A ‘sci-fi folk’ group from Huddersfield known as Maia, who were received with excitement and warmth” The Times (Cambridge Folk Festival)

“The most impressive aspect of Maia is that they are more adventurous and eclectic within the course of a single song than some artists dare to be in their entire career” For Folks Sake

“Eclectic with surprising twists and turns throughout their set, Maia are very good at executing their own brand of whimsical folk. Upbeat and multi-instrumental, they set the right mood in the glade as feet tap and heads turn.” Acoustic Magazine (In The Woods Festival)
