KATE ARNOLD
Originally a classically trained violinist and vocalist, Kate took up the hammered dulcimer in 1997.
If they know it at all, most people associate the hammered dulcimer with either folk music or 1960s Cold War spy film soundtracks. Those influences are there! But the instrument is much more versatile, and Kate takes the evocative sound of this ancient instrument in some unconventional directions involving live looping and electronic effects.
In recent years she has worked with Lisa Knapp, Rose McDowall, Doudou Cissoko, Daemonia Nymphe, Steve Albini and Tony Visconti and is looking forward to returning to her home town to play for you!

— YELLOW6
Yellow6 is the solo project of British guitarist Jon Attwood. Yellow6 has at times been described as post-rock, minimalist, electronica, ambient… the reality is that Yellow6 has some similarity with each of those genres but is not so easily definable, using aspects of drone, repetition, melody, harmony, noise and silence to create absorbing soundscapes to drift off into

— KAMURA OBSCURA
Japanese agit-femme vocalist and electricist. Former member of Frank Chickens and Mizutama Shobodan (Polka Dot Fire Brigade): first Japanese feminist punk band. Voice-modulated improvisation and eco-surrealist chansons are weaved into the bizarre world of the experimental.

Live review 02/03/2018
“Kamura’s various voices combine to create an indeterminate libretto in which bird song, ocean waves and white noise stand tall. …Synthesised melodies shift the atmosphere from B movie horror, past new age ambient and on to playful children’s song. ..”
Ilia Rogatchevski, The Wire, May 2018
