A streaming show to enjoy at home featuring two exciting British singer-songwriters.
Northern Irish experimental folk songwriter and producer Joshua Burnside is something of a regional anomaly. With a brooding, powerful sound echoing artists of places afar and time long gone, his enthralling craft defies local comparison in striving towards an aesthetic as much as visual as it is sonic. Balanced with a diverse palette of sounds, Burnside deftly blends alt-folk and elements of the Irish folk song tradition with South American rhythms and Eastern European influences, whilst introducing synthetic and found-sounds, synths loops and crunching beats to create a stormy world that shifts and swirls perspective like a lingering lucid dream.
This set was recorded in January 2021, and has previously been broadcast as part of Americanafest UK.
With her ethereal vocals, poignant melodies and stirring lyrics, award winning nu-folk singer-songwriter and musician Zoë Bestel has been hailed as one of the UK’s most exciting emerging talents. As well as numerous BBC radio performances, Zoë has played at leading festivals including Celtic Connections, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Stonehaven Folk Festival, Orkney Folk Festival, and headlined The Ukulele Festival of Scotland.
