Arlet: new minimalist folk on Fri 1 November


Arlet logo webWe are very sorry that this event has had to be cancelled.

Award-winning young musicians play new minimalist folk.

Arlet’s music is located somewhere between the folk club and the chamber music hall. Propelled by the restless creativity of accordionist and composer, Aidan Shepherd, it has been said that their sound brings together the primary colours of the orchestra – strings, woodwind and brass.

Part chamber quintet, part altfolk band, Arlet could be compared with The Penguin Cafe Orchestra or Spiro of Bristol. Like Spiro, Arlet has a knack for arranging folk melody which draws on the work of post 1960’s minimalist composers (Reich, Glass et al) and which gives more than a nod to the joyous zest of Terry Riley.

Listen to Arlet here.

Tickets are £8 for music only, £25 with supper before.

Please call 01308 459511 to book.
