This is the first night at the new venue for Hey Ho! Folk: the Cemetery Chapel at Foster Hill Road. It’s a fascinating and beautiful building and we are very lucky to be able to use it to hold our intimate folk nights.
Amelia’s songs are nostalgic and moving, centered around memory, loss, place, and longing. While heavily influenced by traditional American and Irish music and song, Cinder Well is deeply personal and original. Amelia Baker’s mourning vocals are framed with resonator guitar, shruti box, and strings, and her lyrics and cathartic melodies wrap listeners in a surrealist world just adjacent to our own.
Born out of a collective love of 1970’s folk-rock, traditional ballads, and dance music of America, Ireland, and Scandinavia, Cinder Well’s sound is at once provoking and nostalgic.
There is a licence for the event and alcoholic and soft drinks will be served. Please bring cash for the bar and your own glass/ tankard so we can cut down on single use plastic.
Pre-booking only. Tickets are £10 + booking fee from Eventbrite click here
There is loads of free parking after 6pm in the main car park along Foster Hill Road by Robinson Pool and Bedford Park. The footpath to the chapel begins at the gothic gatehouse and archway. Someone will be there to show you the way. It’s a short minute walk, but disabled parking is available as you are allowed to drive through the cemetery. Just drive under the arch and follow the road around to the chapel. Again, someone will be at the gates to direct you, so you won’t get lost! The main gates will close at 7.45 pm.
