“SITW grab hold of folk music with both hands, dragging it through the 21st century city with no fear they might somehow break it.” The Quietus
Stick In The Wheel’s work is rooted in traditional music and song, informed by the modern electronic music that grew out of their hybrid East London heritage.
Nicola Kearey and Ian Carter use centuries-old work-songs that speak to present-day issues of class – an inherently political act – as well as historical material from Saxon poetry to Medieval carols.
Their third studio album, Hold Fast, is a deeply layered journey of hope and resistance, with a sonic palette that is wider yet more nuanced than ever, with synths, spoken word and psychedelic guitar fuzz. 2021 experimental mixtape Tonebeds for Poetry is #2 Contemporary Music Guardian Album of the Year.
SITW continue to push forward the contemporary tradition of roots music, whilst maintaining and celebrating music from our collective histories – conjuring the past to point toward the future.
Rescheduled from Friday 22 April 2022.
