Right! Off to the land of alt-folk now. I saw the Moulettes play last year supporting Arthur Brown. I thought they were a rather talented bunch, that and being a sucker for the odd bit of folk, I'm going in for a second visit.
The Moulettes are being supported by Robert Vincent.
"Moulette are an alt.folk-rock band from the southern and western counties of this fair isle. They have been together since their mid-teens, earlier this century, and have just released their second album.
Ex-Moulette Ted Dwane, now of Mumford & Sons recently returned to the fold to help record this new collection, The Bear’s Revenge , and earlier this year they played several dates with the Mumford boys.
Seasick Steve has used violinist Georgina on his latest album and live shows (alongside John Paul Jones of Led Zep); bassoonist, Ruth Skipper has recorded with Paul Heaton; and cellist Hannah has just contributed to a new album helmed by Adrian McNally of The Unthanks.
Moulettes’ charismatic, idiosyncratic brand of modern folk music – which incorporates elements of prog and alt.rock, pop and Classical– has bewitched crowds at many festivals, including Glastonbury, Bestival, Larmer Tree and Latitude where they played the BBC’s Late Junction stage."
