Haslemere Fringe is delighted to present an evening at Haslemere’s finest acoustic venue, St Christopher’s Church.
A classic singer songwriter and story teller, his songs are personal, universal, joyful and moving. In a long, eclectic career he’s written songs for other artists, music for radio, television and movie productions and, once upon a time, survived the Eurovision circus. After many years behind the scenes he recently began performing his original material in public and audiences warmed immediately to his songs and the stories that inhabit them. This renaissance has supercharged his songwriting. The new album; About Love, is his best work yet, recorded in collaboration with many of the wonderful writers and musicians that share the vibrant music scene in Surrey and Hampshire – some of which will be joining him on this special evening. It’s filled with infectious tunes and optimism
Acoustic duo Slack Maverick showcase their slow grown road songs ranging from americana/ folk to foot tapping rock and roll.
Polly Gone Wrong present spine-tingling close harmony acapella. Their original songs are baked with folk and blues, elements of playful obscurity and close harmonies. Sometimes accompanied by a saw, a bass, a drum, or even beatboxing, and sometimes three female voices in harmony and unison.
Co-founders of the Haslemere Festival music nights, water-shed play a unique blend of folk and americana infused rock. Of their 2014 album, coupons for the moon, Indie Music Habit says: “Where most new folk artists are losing sight of its traditions, water-shed keeps it intact while bringing an edgy, southern influence to the table to make for a unique yet familiar sound that brightens the day and eases the mind.” They will also be performing a new set of songs from their forthcoming 3rd album.
