Aidan O'Rourke / Kit Downes
The Toy Museum Folk Club is Brighton's newest traditional folk night, bringing the very best acts to the unique setting of Brighton Toy and Model Museum. Come and watch intimate acoustic sets from the finest folk talents, and explore the train sets, model planes and traditional children's toys on display in the museum.
With his trio Lau, and in multiple solo projects and collaborations, Aidan O'Rourke has pioneered a new sound in folk music and redefined traditional forms. Kit Downes is an award-winning pianist and composer who has worked with dozens of collaborators and never released a track that was anything less than gorgeous.
The duo have been working together on the mammoth tune-cycle 365, a collection of songs written at the rate of one a day over the course of a year. The first collection of highlights was released last year, and is absolutely stunning. Volume 2 comes out this August, ahead of this gig.
Support comes from young trad folk singer-songwriter Tilly Moses, who combines a distinct and unparalleled voice with a confidence in songwriting rarely seen.
This is a chance to catch a magical line-up in a unique space, bringing their music to an intimate audience of fans, vintage stuffed toys and model trains!
