About this event
Three powerhouses of London folk promotion are joining forces for a one off special all dayer festive er... festival. The capital's finest folk and americana night, Before The Gold Rush, the capitals fastest flourishing label, Folkroom Records, and the capital's most frothingly fantastic folk ensemble, Patch & The Giant present to you A FOLKY CHRISTMAS at The Gallery Cafe in Bethnal Green, London.
Free entry before 6.30pm.
London-based alt-folk band; a spirited troupe of five boys and two girls who together craft a sound which is big, beguiling, anthemic and lyrical. Delivered with an air of ramshackle decadence, strong vocal harmonies, soaring strings, keys and buttons along with boots, braces and warbling brass.
'... fantastically energetic and foot stomping super 7' (thankfolkforthat.com).

Freddie and the Hoares have been gestating for a few years and were finally born in early 2011. The merry bunch play their own raucous brand of Folk 'n' Roll - featuring close harmonies, accordion, violin, and poetic lyrics all to make your heart sing and your blood boil.

Singer/songwriter Sophie tries to paint pictures and atmosphere with words and a delicately-plucked guitar. A sound which began in the conventional female singer-songwriter vein is developing into something more poignant and ethereal.
