Leeds trio Sky Larkin played a lovely set of songs for Bandstand Busking back in 2011 – watch them here – and so we’re delighted to welcome them back to Arnold Circus on their return to the road in 2014. Following the release of the third album ‘Motto’ last autumn and a run of celebratory dates, the band will play a run of UK shows in April as well a European tour later in the Spring.
We’re so happy to welcome Virginia-based songwriter Diane Cluck who describes her music as ‘intuitive folk’. Diane was a part of the New York anti-folk scene and played with artists like Jeffrey Lewis, Kimya Dawson and Devendra Banhart. She is in London for a residency at Cafe Oto in Dalston. Her latest album ‘Boneset’ was released on 4 March this year.
Another happy addition to the bill, brilliant North Dakotan folk singer and storyteller Tom Brosseau will stop by to play some songs for us too. Here he is playing Been True for Bandstand Busking back in 2009. And our Padraic interviewed him too! Tom’s jetting round the UK this week on his Grass Punks album release tour.
See you at Arnold Circus bandstand on Sunday!
Note: Matthew & the Atlas have had to pull out of this month’s busk, but don’t despair because they’ll be back later in the year.
