  • James Canty + support from Shevek & Emperors of Rome

    Tue 5 Sep

    7:45 pm


    Folk Lore presents a headline show from the wonderful James Canty plus support from Shevek & Emperors of Rome

    Limited advance tickets available here: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/413700

    James Canty
    Like a series of Jacques Brel chansons sung by Ian Dury Love, the debut EP release by ascendant Liverpool based singer James Canty is a sterling showcase of the vocalist’s idiosyncratic songwriting talent.
    Influenced by musicians who initially found fame in the early 1960s folk movement: Bob Dylan, Pete Seegar, Paul Simon on to 1970s songsmiths: Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Townes Van Zandt via Radiohead and Cass McCombs, the wordsmith James calls to mind most readily is the aforementioned Ian Dury.

    Shevek is Tristram Bawtree of Eyes & No Eyes (Willkommen Collective), singing songs about care-work, the Id, and trying to act natural when you feel unnatural.

    He combines the hushed romanticism of Nick Drake with the sonic inventiveness of Arthur Russell or Mount Eerie.

    Emperors of Rome
    Emperors of Rome shaped their gentle, dark book of songs through a freezing Berlin winter in an old communist-era radio station… songs of enchantment and loss, recalling the Velvets, Leonard Cohen, the Mary Chain and Twin Peaks…
