Stick in the Wheel

Don't Miss Out
Time: Sunday 7.30pm
Cost: £14.00 in Advance | £16.00 on the Door

East London folk band Stick in the Wheel are headed by singer Nicola Kearey, and guitarist/producer Ian Carter. Their debut From Here(2015) was fRoots magazine ‘Album of the Year’ and a MOJO ‘Folk Album of the Year’, with four BBC Folk Award nominations since their inception in 2013. Known for Kearey’s fierce, authentic delivery, this is culturally and politically switched on music with its roots firmly embedded in the genre’s traditional, working-class heritage.

Their second album Follow Them True is out now. The songs within examine rituals and cycles, our inherent power to change ourselves and the world around us, the past repeating itself, ghosts and death, land and place, thieves and beggars. It continues to question the notion of what folk music is, and what it means in 2018. The new album expands the radical sound of their debut to include electronic and found sounds, yet at the same time remaining totally connected with the tradition.

“Britain’s most exciting new folk band” Uncut
“Powerful—and deeply relatable” Pitchfork
“Precision folk with anger, lust and blood” 4/5 The Guardian
“Snapping crocodile clips onto the knackers of working-class folksong, giving it new life and fresh intent” Long Live Vinyl
“Urgent, uncompromising, intelligent – Stick In The Wheel are the bristles on the clean broom the UK folk scene badly needs” 4/5 Record Collector
