Chuffed to bits to have secured the incredible Lavinia Blackwall who will be performing on Friday 1st December with support from the equally talented Laura J Martin. Lavinia performed at Moniaive Folk Festival in May this year and really impressed. Don't miss this fantastic performance!

Lavinia Blackwall

"As befits any folk rock band worth its salt, Trembling Bells also boast a golden-throated, multi-instrumentalist songbird in Lavinia Blackwall"
The Guardian

Laura J Martin
Laura J Martin has so far released three critically acclaimed albums. Her latest, ‘On The Never Never’, was recorded in Nashville with members of Lambchop, Silver Jews and Jesus Lizard.

A mercurial and bewitching live performer who interweaves layers of vocals, flute, mandolin and electronics; Laura and her band have toured regularly across the UK and Europe and supported acts such as PJ Harvey, Teenage Fanclub, Cate Le Bon and performed and collaborated extensively with Euros Childs.

Consistently played and supported by BBC6 Music DJs such as Marc Riley, Cerys Matthews, Lauren Laverne, Gideon Coe and Stuart Maconie; Laura's most recent release was a collaborative project 'Wyndow' written with Lavinia Blackwall of Trembling Bells.

Currently finalising her next solo album, Laura will be playing new material and songs from her wide catalogue.
