House of Trees with Jack Cheshire

A night of very special live winter music at Sladers Yard…

We are pleased to host Ango/Swedish band ‘House of Trees’ and the acclaimed British alt-folk troubadour Jack Cheshire performing some of the repertoire that has made them a firm fixture at festivals across Europe…

“Hugely beguiling…Ludicrously underrated… You’ll adore it…” The Sunday Telegraph

Once upon a time some friends moved to a house made of, and  surrounded by, trees. Situated deep in the Swedish woodlands the house  is a hidden haven; a place where if no-one speaks one hears only the  sound of birds, a river and the wind in the trees. There is also the  sound of music….

The House of Trees

vocalist Djamila Skoglund-Voss and guitarist songwriter Rob Coe House of Trees for webLed by singer/songwriter Rob Coe, House of Trees explore the myriad moods of life – thoughts, dreams, places and people – in their often mythical fairytale songs. Djamila Skoglund Voss’s earthy yet ethereal voice combines with Bridport-born James Carnell on percussion and  Helena Sköld  on violin.

As a live act the group bends and shapes itself depending on the  climate of the concert. The  atmosphere and emotion of their gigs is like a good home: warm and  cosy on the inside but outside the wind and the dark are knocking on  the door. The songs blend a heady mix of classical, folk and jazz music that draw parallels with Billie Holiday, Kurt Weill, and dark old-time Disney classics.

Jack Cheshire

“Hugely beguiling…Ludicrously underrated… You’ll adore it if you like Roy Harper, Nick Drake, Gravenhurst or Badly Drawn Boy… The lyrics are dreamlike and beautiful, and the melodies and arrangements get right under your skin.” The Sunday Telegraph

Bath-born troubadour Jack Cheshire’s sweetly-slurred melodies, kaleidoscopic finger-picking and intricately-layered musicbox psychedelia have invited comparisons with Syd Barratt, Arthur Lee, Radiohead and Beck, and have led to supports with the likes of Josh T Pearson, Roddy Woomble, Polly Paulusma and Kris Drever.
