Location (at time of show):
Folk - World
A Bristol based supergroup of buskers, bringing together artists from Pip & The Polar Bears, Samantha Lindo, Long For The Coast and Jacob Spencer.
The artists share undertones of justice related themes in their music, although at the same time embody a huge diversity of sound.
Pip’s kooky folk ballads, with their freshness and buoyant beauty, stir our hearts to stand firm in the face of global issues whilst Samantha’s rich voice and soulful sound cuts straight to the core and is filled with percussive artistry and a landscape of harmony that is reminiscent of chain-gang gospel blues.
Jacob Spencer, a multi-instrumentalist talent, in addition to supporting both Pip and Sam musically, also sings his own set of stunningly penned, experimental folk songs with a voice that is so smooth and velvety it sounds like he just walked out of a 1940’s barbershop.
Joined by Hannah Boxall, Lou and Joel Mines and other musician friends, the collective create a set that journeys through and celebrate each other's uniqueness and differences, whilst maintaining a distinctly beautiful and identifiable sound as group.
