Assembly Lane


This event has been and gone.

Assembly Lane are an exciting folk and bluegrass band comprising Matthew Ord (guitar, vocals), Tom Kimber (mandolin), Niles Krieger (fiddle, vocals) and Bevan Morris (double bass). We never set out to start a band, says Kimber, for a couple of years we would just meet up to jam whenever we could, and ended up with all this material, so we hit the road. Armed with this deep insight into each other's musicianship, the band took the live circuit by storm, wowing audiences at some of the country's flagship festivals and arts centres. Calling on their skills as versatile and open-minded musicians they use various techniques and textures to evoke a rich and varied soundscape that continually excites and surprises. Their debut album, 'Northbound', is characterised by a level of maturity and subtlety that is rarely found in a debut, due in no small part to those halcyon days of carefree jamming.


Assembly Lane

Assembly Lane brings together four young Newcastle-based musicians immersed in the shared musical traditions of The British Isles and North America. Their dynamic arrangements of traditional and contemporary material from both sides of the Atlantic effortlessly blend ancient ballads and progressive bluegrass with rich vocal harmonies and instrumental flair.
