Folk Rock for the 21st Century ...

Folk Rock for the 21st Century

 

BBC Folk Awards winners, Jim Moray and Sam Carter are well known for their solo work and each has a reputation for musical experimentation. One night in 2013, the singer-guitarists met for a drink at the hotel bar after a festival and the conversation turned to the things they had listened to while growing up – 90's guitar bands, electronica, post rock, traditional ballads and shapenote singing. By the end of the night they had formed False Lights - a new band that would explore new kinds of folk-rock hybrids. Come the next summer they were headlining Suffolk’s Folk East festival and translating that initial rush of ideas into a joyful turn-it-up-loud thrash of folk songs you can jump around to.

 

“Folk rock brilliance” ???? Songlines

 

Based in the traditional music of Great Britain, but not constrained by its usual modes of performance, they have become one of England’s most exciting acts. Their first album, 'Salvor' gained five star reviews, a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nomination for best album and copious airplay on BBC Radio 2, 6 Music and beyond.

 

Joined by virtuoso fiddle and melodeon duo Tom Moore and Archie Churchill-Moss, dub-tinged bassist Barnaby Stradling (Eliza Carthy & Blowzabella) and drummer Stuart Provan, they make old words and tunes resonate with the modern world.

 

“A game changer for all involved, and perhaps even the scene in general” ????? fRoots
