Review from Folking.com

We weren’t really expecting many reviews for our first EP, Bring Us In. The word is that most folk reviewers prefer to cover albums, so we are so pleased that Mike Davies from folking.com took the time to listen and write about us. You can read the whole review on the website.

Our next live show is supporting the amazing Will Pound at The Green Note in Camden on Monday 18th November, for Folk On Monday.

You can get tickets now from The Green Note website for £12.

Our new EP Bring Us In will be available to buy on November 1st. You can preorder a copy now by visiting our band camp page

Marisa, Jack & Davy’s debut EP Bring Us In presents an eerie and melancholic take on the British folk tradition. Using rich three-part harmony and fingerstyle guitar underpinned by ghostly organ drones and hypnotic percussion, the trio draw on themes of magic, mystery, murder and the majesty of nature. Recorded by Davy in his front room in Bromham, Bedfordshire, the six song EP is their first release and a product of all they have learned from four years of hosting their folk night in Bedford.


Listen to Oak and Ash and Thorn now!

Cinder Well Review

Cinder Well were incredible at Foster Hill Road Cemetery Chapel in Bedford.  ††††This venue sounds so good it’s unreal! We feel so lucky to have had the chance to use this magical space, isolated on the top of the hill.


Adrian Bean wrote a lovely review of the night. We’ve included a little excerpt:

“The chapel was an ideal place to perform plaintive melodies about death and loss. Multi-instrumentalist Amelia has an amazing voice, and the harmonies with Marit were as beautiful and haunting as anything that can ever have been heard in the chapel. Sad but joyous. Musicianship made to look easy. And to cap it all, they love graveyards.”

Thanks so much to everyone who attended, and listened, and sang along, and drank the bar dry! 

Huge thanks to Ebb, Sue, Adrian and from Friends at Foster Hill Cemetery for all their help and to our good mate, Robbie for ushering people up the hill. Also thanks to Rachel and James at Made in Bedford at Number 13 for providing delicious vegan wraps! 

Next Chapel gig is The Askew Sisters on 19th October.
