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.
On Monday 29th October Bedford’s favourite vegan cafe, Number 13 (it’s next to the Corn Exchange opposite Market Square) will be transformed into a magical venue for their first Supper Club. To celebrate Halloween, their new in-house chef, Mirna, will be cooking an amazing four course seasonal vegan meal and we’ll be providing some atmospheric doom folk music. Eating a vegan banquet whilst listening to us singing about murder is peak Halloween dontcha know!

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.
This year Bedfringe will run over a record breaking 2 weeks. Events will take place at The Quarry Theatre and The Place Theatre. We’re so chuffed to be performing at our local arts festival! Come and see us play this weekend for free in the garden at The Quarry theatre. Fingers are crossed for some lush weather.
Check it out! We’re playing at Bermondsey Folk Festival! There’s a first rate line up of top UK folk talent and we’re honoured to be there too. How the heck did that happen?! Hope to see you there, come and say hi!
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!
