***FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY***
BIRD IN THE BELLY TAKEOVER FOLKING AROUND
Brighton based, folk supergroup Bird in the Belly is a collective made up of singer-songwriter Jinnwoo, folk duo Hickory Signals, visual artist Ëpha J. Roe, and instrumentalist Tom Pryor.
Together they have spent the last 12 months collecting rarely recorded songs and stories, in the hope of reintroducing them into the modern folk canon!
Alongside the resulting album 'The Crowning', the band are also producing a feature length documentary, interviewing the biggest names in the business about the contemporary folk scene.
As well as performances by the band and snippets for their documentary we can also enjoy the music of their constituent members:
