House of Trees
Saturday 13 July 2013, 7.30pm, music from 9pm.
Tickets: £10/£25 with supper
We are delighted to host Ango/Swedish band ‘House of Trees’ whose crooked jazz melodies blended with dark fairytale lyrics have been selling out top jazz and folk clubs including Ronnie Scotts in London and Sladers Yard last January.
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….
Led 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.
