Folie à Deux and Sarah Johns Music Party have joined forces to bring to you a glorious winter CHRISTMAS PARTY hosted at Dalston Boys Club - a unique, cosy, theatrical and tucked away venue.
The night brings together Live Alt-Folk Music, Contemporary Dance, DJS and Spoken Word, with mulled wine and an open fire to make it extra snug and festive.
Emma Gatrill (vocals and harp)
Gatrill sings for and plays with a long list of amazing folk bands including: Mariner's Children, Sons of Noel and Adrian, Rachael Dadd and Laura Marling. Her solo work consists of intensively beautiful, intricate and delicate harp playing, folk lyrics and a pure enchanting voice – an absolute wonder.
Sarah Johns Music Party (vocals and drums) –
With an incredibly atmospheric and overwhelmingly beautiful voice, Johns has been described perfectly as: ‘Calm yet theatrical, unusual and beautiful, lyrical yet melody-driven folk; with a Billie Holiday-esque twist to the use of her very flexible vocals. Unique.’
CONTEMPORARY DANCE: Tap Dance! Christmas themed improvised tap dance!
Ben Target
'A pleasure to come across someone who's truly unusual' (Guardian Guide)
'Impressively funny' (Scotsman)
'Genius', 'unique' and 'the best' (Edinburgh Fringe)
Winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2011 award, Ben Target is a comedian and spoken word artist who is one of the most talked-about new acts from this year’s Edinburgh Fringe. Described as ‘a hugely gifted prop comic whose shows are in equal parts delightful and unsettling…’ (Guardian Guide) he is said to have ‘the audience giggling in suspense from the moment he enters’. Target blurs the lines between comedy and conceptual art without any pretence; inventive and clever Target is one of the best acts on the circuit today.
