Up coming gigs and concerts from all over Oxfordshire.

Bush Gothic - Rebellious Australian Tradition at St Aldates Tavern - September 21st, 7:30pm

The historic St. Aldates Tavern in the heart of town is the venue for Bush Gothic's Oxford concert - part of a UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australian tour to celebrate the release of their music video and single Jim Jones. An Australian counter-culture folk band, Bush Gothic have been invited to play the main stage at Homegathering, a festival curated by The Unthanks. With a 5 Star review in BBC Music Magazine and fRoots Album of the Year Runner Up 2016, Bush Gothic assert their rebellious intentions by lovingly re-arranging traditional Australian folk music until the unfashionable is transformed into daring beauty.

Defiantly modern, achingly old, this most daring of bands perform songs of criminal women and desperate men from an era of transportation, adventure and gold. The Guardian described fiddle-singer and band leader Jenny M. Thomas as an ‘Edgy rising folk star’ and together with double bassist Dan Witton and drummer Chris Lewis they will tour the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Fara at The North Wall - October 27th

Fara

Fara brings together four emerging musicians at the forefront of today’s young Scottish folk scene to produce a fiery sound rooted strongly in their upbringing among the music of Orkney.

With vibrant and inventive arrangements, energetic fiddle and driving piano, Fara’s live show is an exciting one. With their mixture of self-penned and traditional tunes, as well as songs with rich four-part harmony vocals, the girls combine musical experiences and friendship to produce an exciting and individual sound.

Fara were nominated for a Horizon Award at BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017. Don’t miss the chance to see the band while their star is on the rise.

The Devil's Violin: Stolen at The North Wall - October 13th

The Devil's Violin: Stolen

Daniel Morden transports you to the Land of No Return, his storytelling served by the hypnotic string accompaniment of Sarah Moody and Oliver Wilson-Dickson.

The ensemble will take you on an epic journey, through a dream-like land where you will encounter a king turned to stone, an old woman living in the claw of a giant cockerel and a glass man filled with wasps.

The Devil’s Violin has been breathing new life into the ancient art of storytelling since 2006. The North Wall are delighted to welcome them back to Oxford for the fourth time with their latest spell-binding show.

Age Suitability: 10+
