Scaledown #91

(Friday the 26th July)

Ladies and Gentlemen of the July sun,

Have you waxed down your surf boards? Are you planning to catch a wave? On Friday, 26th July, at 7.30, we advise you to leave the boards at the door-the door of scaledown as you ascend the wooden steps of The King and Queen to ride on a wave of talent as the artists (listed in no particular order) duly deliver July music to you:

Greanvine - Diana Collier and Steven Collins, both formerly of folk collective The Owl Service. Unique interpreters of songs, the duo can be heard tackling tunes by the likes of Baby Dee and Low alongside traditional ballads, Sacred Harp songs, and their own original material, all arranged for guitar, drones and vocals.

Keshco - those crazy psychedelic synth-folk funksters are scaling down to a twopiece for this month, stepping in at the last minute into the Scaledown-breach with their fabulously oddball pop

Jude Cowan Montague - Jude will emerge from her usual spot singing about the news to experiment upon you with new songs about people of London - are you one of them/us? It's a little bit me ... it's a little bit you ... too

Lil' Lost Lou - another late addition to the bill of fare (real performers thrive on short notice invitations!!!)... Yee Haw! She sings songs of being lost in East London and out there. She's supported Wanda Jackson and played on many a country and rock 'n' roll stage - shades of Elvis and the urban wilds.

Roshi Featuring Pars Radio - Returning to scaledown to promote her latest critically acclaimed album, Three Almonds and a Walnut, Roshi will not fail in mesmerising the audience with her ethereal voice and exotic sounds

ruM - Comprising the talents of Paul Taylor on trombone, washboard and voice and Mike Walter on soprano saxophone and melodeon, he duo return to scaledown armed with new and challenging improvisational ideas. Enjoy!

And it is FREE! Come to:
