Sukina Pilgrim
 

Sukina Pilgrim is a Spoken-Word and Hip Hop artist, Workshop Facilitator and Event Organiser. She makes up one half of the Muslim female Hip Hop duo, Poetic Pilgrimage and has performed across the UK, Europe, the USA, North and South Africa with her group sharing their unique blend of conscious Hip Hop and impactful poetry to engage communities. ‬

Her work has been featured on the BBC News, World Service and Asian Network, ITV, Channel 4 and Al Jazeera and has been written about in the Huffington Post, Daily Mail, The Voice and many other international media outlets. In March 2015 Al Jazeera screened a documentary about her group called Hip Hop Hijabis. In 2017 she delivered a Tedx Talk on the healing power of poetry.
 

Flo

In a small market town in the UK, there is a voice that has steadily been creating beautiful music for the last few years. Flo has gone from strength to strength since she first came onto the gig scene, singing with a number of bands, including Atlas alongside Richy Spitz.

There was always more to her talent though, so when she decided to branch out into other areas and start working on her solo career, things really began to take shape. It’s thanks to her dreamlike, almost ethereal vocal style that she has become the ideal collaborator for so many artists on the UK Hip Hop scene and beyond.

2018 is just underway, but already Flo is plotting her next projects and promises to keep fans - both old and new - as enticed by her music as ever.

Along with Media coverage in Discovered magazine and numerous radio plays on Voice FM and BBC introducing all giving extremely positive feedback to their first release "Closest to Perfect".

With more UK tours and upcoming festival appearances, Slackrr are looking to bring their brand of Pop Punk/ Punk to the masses. 

NEW SINGLE "LESSONS" AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE FROM JUNE 28TH!!

“These guys have achieved so much in such a short space of time.”

Jo Symes: BBC Introducing on the release of “Closest to Perfect”

“These guys are already leagues above others doing the same thing. It’s clean, it’s polished and most of all – it’s fucking good.”

“This is the part where I would usually say that I look forward to seeing how the band progresses, but if I’m totally honest, I’d be happy if these guys kept churning out tunes like this.”

“Slackrr could be heading for greatness”

Marcus Osbourne: On the House Music
www.onthehousemusic.co.uk

“Taking influences from different genres to create your own music is something that takes skill, and it also takes a huge level of creativity. Go and See what all the hype is about."

Georgia Rawson: Discovered Magazine  

"How good is that!!? If you're going to go big for the first one, that's how you do it!"

"Big future for those guys if they can keep making tracks like that!"

Simon Wilson: Voice FM on "Closest to Perfect" 

"Slackrr bring with them the pop punk summer vibes we all know and love with their new single ‘Closest to Perfect’, not to mention cracking guitar riffs and sing along lyrics.
It’s a must listen to release!"

Chloe Bevan: Shout it Loud Reviewshttp://shoutitloudreviews.com/

"It’s a very strong debut single from this band and one I definitely see myself coming back to for repeated listens."

Megan Langley: Live a little bit louder 

Check out "Closest to perfect"

The Wonderists are an acoustic singer songwriter duo specialising in intricate melody and poetic lyric. Lithuanian born Tom Povilaitis who been a professional musician for 23 years and has a passion for stringed instruments, production and knowledge. Michelle Watson, the other half of this musical duo just has a passion, but especially for lyrics, theatre and art, expressed through two decades of creative capering. Her greatest skill however is free-styling, and this is how the duo met, jamming round a pot of winter tonic at a mutual friend’s house. A cord was struck and numbers exchanged and at their second organised jam, they pressed record and alchemy occurred. Tom’s intricate guitar rifts perfectly complement Michelle’s dulcet tones and their mutual understanding of what it is to be a wonderist, to choose magic over terror, makes the collaboration inspired. Both work with vulnerable people on the the peripheries of society, either through learning disabilities or mental health issues and both say they love their jobs because of the love and laughter to be found there. 

The word wonderist was a phrase coined by the brilliant counter culture author John Higgs, inspired by another brilliant brain, magician Cat Vincent, who suggested the need for a word in society to counter the word terrorist. A way to describe those who spread positivity and choose a different version of reality to the one enforced by the media. Michelle’s powerful voice and lyrics juxtaposed against the beautifully sweet melodies of their songs embody this perfectly. If you enjoy wonderfully constructed acoustic music with intelligent lyrics, this is for you.








ROCK - BLUES - West Coast Movers + Static

ROCK - BLUES - West Coast Movers + Static

The weekend kicks off with a brilliant line up of live music 7pm - £5 OTD

WEST COAST MOVERS

With many influences spanning the decades including The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, The Smiths and REM, the West Coast Movers have managed to create their own unique sound. Their mix of bluesy guitars, sweet melody hooks and sensitive lyrics, take the listener back to the now seemingly distant days of good old-fashioned radio friendly rock.

Their ethos is simple; its all about the music, everything else is secondary.

The founding members met one fateful evening in London in early 2017 when Dom Colletti and Jim West attended one of many generic open mic nights. There were many performers there that night but only one stood out. He was an unassuming character at first glance, but they saw something special in Simon Theobald’s vocals and songwriting style. Later that evening, all 3 got talking and quickly found they shared much common ground.

Over the next few months, they began meeting round Jim’s house and writing numerous songs. During this time, many of the songs in their current repertoire were created. 

 In the summer of 2017, Fabio De Fronzo joined the band on drums. With Dominic Colletti on lead guitar, Jim West on Bass and Simon Theobald on vocals and rhythm guitar, their line up was complete.  Soon after, they went into the studio and recorded their first tracks. A small number of low-key gigs followed, culminating in the shooting of their first video for “Devil Inside”.

 Unfortunately, at the start of 2018, just as everything was starting to fall into place, the West Coast Movers received bad news. Fabio announced that he would be leaving the band, as he had to return home to Italy. The split was amicable in nature, but it did mean that things temporarily ground to a halt.

 Many online ads and failed auditions later, the West Coast Movers finally found a new drummer, Calvin Hansen. Shortly after, in a bid to expand their sound, they also recruited their first keyboardist, Alan Johnson. The line up was now complete.

Each member boasts many credentials; Dominic Colletti had a spell on tour supporting Siouxsie and the Banshees during the eighties. He also continues to do regular session work for Stevie Hong, who has a massive following in Japan.

Jim West spent time in the eighties backing Tony McPhee of the Groundhogs with his blues band Hard Road. During the nineties, he had a stint with Dumpy’s Rusty Nuts.

Alan Johnson has been in numerous bands over the years, ranging from classical, folk, pop, reggae, blues, ska and of course good old rock 'n’ roll. 

Calvin Hansen, born in LA, grew up in Omaha, Nebraska where he first learnt his craft. In December 2017, he moved over to England and started frequenting many jam nights in the London area. Classically trained on the drums, he has done stints on cruise ships and played in many different bands in the US and the UK.

Simon Theobald entered the music world later than the other members. Although music had always been a passion, it wasn’t until his late twenties that he finally recorded his first batch of songs. After much encouragement from friends and family, he began playing at open mic nights. It was during this period that he began to find his voice and direction and eventually met the other founding members of the band.

STATIC

Described as “an alternative/hard rock power frenzy", Static are an energetic power trio from London & Essex playing dirty riffs, wailing vocals and fuzzy bass over heavy drums.

Drawing influences from the likes of Nirvana, Biffy Clyro, Rage Against The Machine and Muse, Static are stunning crowds with their immensely energetic and hard hitting performances.

With new EP ‘Disguise’ out now, Static are looking to take the next step in their music career with many more gigs and brand new material.

EVERY 3rd Tuesday of the month. FREE ENTRY 1pm - 4pm

Come and sing your hearts out to some of the old time classics in a friendly relaxed atmosphere in an old Victorian Boozer!

What is music hall??

Music hall is a type of British theatrical entertainment that was popular from the early Victorian era, beginning around 1850. It ended, arguably, after the First World War, when the halls rebranded their entertainment as Variety

Originating in saloon bars within public houses during the 1830s, music hall entertainment became increasingly popular with audiences. So much so, that during the 1850s some public houses were demolished, and specialised music hall theatres developed in their place. These theatres were designed chiefly so that people could consume food and alcohol and smoke tobacco in the auditorium while the entertainment took place. This differed somewhat from the conventional type of theatre, which until then seated the audience in stalls with a separate bar-room.

By the mid-19th century, the halls cried out for many new and catchy songs. As a result, professional songwriters were enlisted to provide the music for a plethora of star performers, such as Marie LloydDan LenoLittle Tich, and George Leybourne.

London was the centre of music hall with hundreds of venues, often in the entertainment rooms of public houses. With the decline in popularity of music hall, many were abandoned, or converted to other uses such as cinemas, and their interiors lost. There are a number of purpose-built survivors, including the Hackney Empire, an outstanding example of the late music hall period (Frank Matcham 1901)

As The Fiddler’s Elbow (Then Mother Shipton) was built in 1846, it would have had many sing a long’s under it’s roof! It’s time to turn back the clock and relive what was a very important part of this country’s musical heritage!

Come and join in, or just relax with a beverage and soak up the atmosphere!

PUNKY ROCK - Wolf Cellar + The Apricot Hounds + Doc Snipp + Bob Skeleton + OONAR

PUNKY ROCK - Wolf Cellar + The Apricot Hounds + Doc Snipp + Bob Skeleton + OONAR

Sundays are great to finish off the weekend at The Fiddler’s. Top bands!

WOLF CELLAR

While the collegiate powerhouse that is the University of Oxford may seem like an unlikely birthing place for an alt-rock band, here we are.

Originally, drummer Creamer and vocalist Rachel had bonded over their shared music tastes at university, so when Creamer was looking to form a band after a move to London, Rach was the first person he called.

London’s thriving live music scene provided the perfect backdrop and after finding guitarists Matt and Dan and bassist Guy, the line-up was cemented.

Following a recording session with producer John Mitchell (Enter Shikari, Funeral for a Friend, Architechs, You MeatSix), WOLF CELLAR are planning a summer of noise with the release of new single ‘Body and Heart’ and further recording to flesh out WOLF CELLAR’s first full length record.

The music of the Apricot Hounds is unique and gutsy cocktail of soulful, trip hop, with authentic rock tones, infused and embroidered with the inspired technicoloured sound of experimental passionate violin and guitar blended with melodic, haunting, and harmonic vocals inspirationally supported by both acoustic and electronic drums.

The Apricot Hounds consists of: 
Adam – vocals, electric guitar 
Agne – vocals & keyboard 
Vaughan – electric violin & guitar  
Sheldon - drums & roland

is a loud 4-piece garage punk band born in South London.

After a chance encounter at a Hole gig in Birmingham back in 2010 – plus several drinks and a trashed hotel room – singer Laura Le Rox and drummer Emma Waller met up in Camden’s finest public toilet-turned-rehearsal room five years later to form Pretty Pistol with guitarist Billy Larsen and bassist Rich Cooper.

Combining melds of furious shouts, frenzied riffs and pummelling drums, resulting in a marshalled chaos somewhere between Gallows, Be Your Own Pet and The Kills. The band is an unignorable presence on the London circuit supporting the likes of Penetration, KidBrother, Drones and Crazytown, to headlining and selling out London venues Birthdays and The Black Heart, which lead to them being picked as Team Rock’s Band Of The Week in Feb 2018

The band’s new EP ‘Welcome To The Dead Club’ will be released on 13th April 2018, recorded with renowned rock producer John Mitchell (Architects, Enter Shikari, You Me At Six) and features the singles ‘Cry Wolf’ and ‘Drive Me To The Dogs’.

“This is riot music done right” – Beneath The Grid Music

“Living up to their reputation they put on a chaotic and powerful show” – Vulture Hound

Vocals: Laura Le Rox
Lead Guitar/Back Vocals: Billy Larsen
Bass Guitar/Back Vocals: Rich Cooper
Drums: Emma Waller

Bob Skeleton are a 4 piece Midnight-Pop band from Galway with influences including Miles Kane, Tame Impala and Lana Del Rey. Intertwining late night grooves with shimmering melodies to create a dynamic blend of West Coast cool and Mancunian mood.

2017 was a busy year for the band, releasing their second and third EP’s respectively in ‘If This Isn’t Love’ and ‘Boiling Point’, as well as the stand alone single ‘See the Moon’. To compliment a busy year of recording they also took their tightly honed live show across the country, including headline slots in Whelan’s and The Roisin Dubh respectively to full capacity rooms, as well as support slots with HamsandwicH and Otherkin.

They also made their Electric Picnic debut on the Body&Soul mainstage, showing their ability to captivate even larger audiences. After taking a brief break early in the year due to their drummer's academic commitments, 2018 promises to be even bigger and better with tours and festival shows already in the pipeline.'

Bob Skeleton released ‘If You Want’ on May 25th 2018.

‘If You Want' was recorded in H. Keep Studios and Willow Sea Studios by Rory Ryan and Will O'Connor, and produced by Will O'Connor and Bob Skeleton. Mastering by Matt Colton (Jungle, Arctic Monkeys, Christine and the Queens). Artwork by Mot Collins.

PROG ROCK - Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate / Birdeatsbaby / Spiral Key

Prog Rock Showcase at the Fiddler's Elbow

Hats Off Gentlemen It's AdequateBirdeatsbaby and Spiral Key present an evening of prog rock at the Fiddler’s Elbow.

Three of Britain's leading emerging progressive rock bands join forces to co-headline an evening of outstanding progressive rock at the legendary Fiddler's Elbow.

Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate - 
www.hatsoffgentlemen.com

"Original songs, well delivered, style, stage charm, a great voice and great bass playing. Bloody marvellous. The highlight of the weekend". e-festivals review of HRH Prog.

"Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate is an ideal example of what prog is; music that does not follow a traditional pattern or path but rather evolves. Hats Off Gentlemen manages to evolve both with every new album and every time you listen to the same album...there is so much there you can't take it all in on the first go-round." The Closet Concert Arena

Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate are recommended by Steve Hackett (Genesis) and were joint winners (along with Roger Waters and Alice Cooper) of the Beastie's Rock Show Album Of The Year Award 2017.

      LAST GIG OF THE YEAR!!  This is going to be a CORKER!!  We have finally managed to book in the absolutely incredible Jennings Couch! I can not tell you how excited we are to have the band HEAD LINING final New Legends Presents show of 2018 at The Fiddlers Elbow BIO: Born in the wilderness of New York City, raised in rural England and made on the streets of London, Jennings Couch is someone who embraces change. Since writing his first songs at the age of 7, Jennings has gone on to create a unique - and eccentric - pop voice. In the beginning of 2017 after having recorded an album’s worth of music, Jennings began gigging and within three months was on his way to Austin, Texas to perform at SXSW 2017. This was followed by a trip to Chengdu, China to perform at the 2017 Silk Road Indie Music Festival where Jennings won the award for ‘Best Song in Show’. Live, Jennings Couch employs pitch perfect harmonisations and anthemic arrangements that provide fans with rich and varied soundscapes that compares to the likes of The 1975 and Imagine Dragons. His lyrics deal with a range of philosophical, social and scientific topics from physics to heartbreak and everything in between. Whether a result of his influences, travels or tendency towards the obtuse, one this is certain: in an era of copycat faux-musicality, Jennings Couch is a refreshingly unique proposition.

Formed in 2015 and originally performing covers to local audiences to build a following, since the turn of 2017 they are now exclusively an original band developing their own very full melodic sound and now playing to a wider audience across the country.  In 2016 we recorded our debut EP of original material at Fairview Studios in Willerby with the renowned producer/engineer John Spence, consisting of 4 original songs; Cocaine After Midnight, Mind Control, What Does It Mean? and Ultimatum. The EP can already be heard on the site or on YouTube and Soundcloud, and CD copies are also available. The EP has been well received and the band have had tracks played on many different Radio Stations.  In July this year we where at Silvertone Productions in Sheffield to record some new tracks - check them out below.  Capital Eye have a busy schedule of gigs over the coming months - see the GIGS section for more details or check FACEBOOK - New EP 'Lipstick Kiss' being released in May   www.facebook.com/capitaleye123   www.capitaleye.co.uk   Then to add more increible fuel to the fire we have the stunning Monsters' Abyss playing for us! BIO Monsters’ Abyss was formed out of an urge to discover new grounds where there are no boundaries between genres. When Aurora first came to London in 2016 she never thought that the songs she had collected over the years would ever see the light of day. Then she met guitarist Irene and together they rescued a bunch of dusty recordings. After a year of noisy nights, and very patient neighbors, Jake joined the band and enriched the songs with his incredible multi-instrumentalist skills. The final piece of the puzzle, Leo joined the band on drums and Monsters’Abyss took to the stage like an angler fish to the deep ocean. Monster’s Abyss draws on a range of influences from Aurora's classical training to the rock, blues, and indie roots of the other members to create the band’s unique sound. LINKS:  https://www.facebook.com/monstersabyss/   http://monstersabyss.com/   https://www.instagram.com/monstersabyss/   And starting the night off with an ALMIGHTY BANG is Flawless Carbon. “Flawless Carbon are a modern rock four-piece combining influences from pioneering artists on both sides of the Atlantic into a unique sound which is its most realised on the new EP 'Back Streets and White Lies'. The band, at the heart, take influence from classic rock giants such as Hendrix, Zeppelin or Floyd but Back Streets and White Lies sees the band utilising their love of more contemporary artists such as Royal Blood, Kaleo, The Pretty Reckless and Beth Hart to simultaneously push boundaries and produce their most direct sound to date.   Sexy, dirty and passionate - Flawless Carbon are as crisp as the name suggests.”  http://www.flawlesscarbonuk.com/   https://www.facebook.com/flawlesscarbon/   This is going to be an night of epic proportions.

Biography

We have been playing together in a multitude of different lineups since 1988 and continue to do so, stronger than ever before. We do not claim to perfectly recreate a Dead concert, but we do promise to harness some of the musical energy and spirit that made the Dead so unique. If you get confused, listen to the music play...
