Mother Vulture + Cybernetic Witch Cult(Rock/ Hectic Blues Punk)

Perhaps our favourite ever description by the band themselves:

Hectic Blues Punk with a live show so chaotic it will leave you with horrific injuries. For fans of being happy, achieving your dreams and not dying.

Mother Vulture are the best band to have ever existed, according to themselves. With a live show as hectic and energetic as the stampede that killed Mufasa, they aim to leave you with permanent hearing loss with their pedal heavy riffiness.

Arrive early and enjoy support by the incredible Cybernetic Witch Cult!

The Flamenco Thief (Spanish Guitar)

The Flamenco Thief (Spanish Guitar)

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS EVENING OF BEAUTIFUL MUSIC

Just check him out:
https://youtu.be/TXU4mBlnbLk

Craig Sutton, better known as The Flamenco Thief, is an English guitarist whose phenomenal rise within the DIY music scene has seen him become one of the busiest touring artists in the country.

Specialising in fast rhythmic guitar playing Craig has earned a reputation for mesmerising live performances in which he uses a Spanish acoustic guitar with the Boss RC loop pedal to blend modern rhythms with time-honoured Flamenco techniques.

A particularly resourceful musician, Craig also utilises the guitar as a percussive instrument, layering metronomic hip-hop beats by carefully beating the body; creating a unique energy that few solo instrumentalists manage to achieve.

Craig’s early influences of ska, hip-hop and gypsy swing are evident throughout his music, helping him craft a catalogue of songs that are intelligent but accessible.

Craig’s compositions revere Flamenco’s heritage while embracing music technology, and as a result each song is delicately poised between the classical and contemporary.
