Cambridge Folk Festival news: The Den Presents: Ferris & Sylvester, August & After and LOZT

Latest update from Cambridge Folk Festival

Part of City Roots 2018


After the resounding success of last year’s first ever City Roots Festival, the event is set to return once more. Injecting the city with winter cheer and the spirit of Cambridge Folk Festival this February and March, Cambridge’s second city-wide winter folk and roots festival opens for an extended two weeks of exceptional music and events.

The Folk Festival’s legendary talent spotting stage, The Den has put together two gigs each featuring three acts.

On the bill at The Boathouse on Friday 23 Feb:

Ferris & Sylvester – with clear references in their catchy folk setup to the mid-60s sounds of such musicians as Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel, the duo also sit firmly amongst contemporaries like Laura Marling and Ray Lamontagne.

August & After – an indie-folk trio weave rich three-part harmonies upon classically-inspired layers of instrumentation. Songwriters Ned and Vedantha were inspired by the likes of Bon Iver and Kings of Convenience and after countless nights honing their vocal harmonies and intricate guitar playing, the trio was formed when they came upon Jordan, a classical violist, on London’s South Bank.

LOZT – pronounced ‘lost’, is a soulful Americana duo with a country edge drawn from both sides of the Atlantic. Lauren Scudder (USA) and Tom Ryder (UK) came together to create songs influenced by acapella, soul, folk and pop to tell stories with sharp-witted lyrics and soaring harmonies.

I’m guessing there’ll be no guest curator now? Wouldn’t imagine Eddie really needs that arrangement?
