We’re extremely pleased to welcome the wonderful, spellbinding Stick in the Wheel on Saturday 2nd November!

The radical East London duo are known for their intense live shows exploring the raw holler of folk, synths, spoken word and intricate rustic dobro guitar. Without question, one of the most powerful and original acts in contemporary music…

“Folk revivalists with punk attitude”The Guardian

Stick In The Wheel explore the parallels between the past and present using a mix of traditional and electronic instruments, creating incendiary performances that are emotive, raw and affecting. Fronted by singer Nicola Kearey and guitarist/producer Ian Carter, Stick In The Wheel have become known for their fiercely authentic delivery – creating culturally and politically switched-on music with its roots firmly embedded in East London working-class heritage.

Full-force reworkings of centuries-old work-songs speak to contemporary issues of class, using multi-layered sonic palettes to deeply reflect hidden histories, told with a razor-sharp authenticity. Stick In The Wheel have created their own London vernacular, a contemporary roots music that celebrates the collective stories and traditions of the city – conjuring the past to point toward the future.
