Me For Queen
The band make a very welcome return to the project on 30th of March with a beautiful blend of story telling folk with a contemporary edge and a new album just released, Fronted by Mary Erskine who is inspired by people and their stories. Growing up feral in rural Fife/Scotland in a big old house near the sea, years of classical training together with a Blues guitarist for a father make for an interesting mix of Soul and Folk, drawing comparisons to a range of artists from Regina Spektor to Carole King, Kate Bush and This is the Kit.
Of her latest single, Jessica, released in August on Seahorse Music, Folk Radio UK wrote, “The combination of rich poetic lines and one of most beautiful, emotive voices I’ve heard in a long time make Me for Queen stand out in any crowd.”
She has enjoyed support from BBC 6 Music, BBC Scotland (single of the week on Janice Forsyth’s Culture show for Slow Train) and BBC Wales. Jessica was also included in one of Spotify UK’s most-listened to playlists, “The Most Beautiful Songs in the World”.
The last year has seen her play two headline UK tours, including sold-out shows at London’s Paper Dress Vintage and the Sound Lounge.
And with support from Laura Kindelan, it’s another night at Hunton not to be missed. tickets on sale now! Just click the ‘Book Now’ button
The Mountain Fireworks Company
Sunday 9th June is amazing night of Bluegrass music at Hunton Village Hall. The most asked for band we have staged, it’s taken 5 years for it all to come together catching them on the return from Scotland’s Eden festival. The Mountain Firework Company is an acoustic 5 piece based in Brighton, England. They came together over heartache and wine to create what has been described as “gorgeous folk/alt country pop, with equal parts darkness and cheeky humour ” and “alternative bluegrass with a dark treacle folk centre”.
