GentleFolk formed in 2014 from singers & players who met at The Goose Is Out folk singarounds held at the Old Nun’s Head. They play pastoral folk songs about the woodland & tell tales of London too.
They are made up of singer & guitarist Nigel Of Bermondsey, Elizabeth Forrester on Shruti & voice,
Sarah Lloyd on fiddle & voice Ian Kennedy on cello, giant tin whistle, flute, bodhran & voice. Gentlefolk have played in a variety of woodland settings, several cemeteries, at a reservoir, the bar at Cecil Sharp House, the Golden Hinde & in pubs. They are planning to record a collection of songs & tales about the woodlands of the South of England in late March.
They have been described by the comedian Stewart Lee as “Good” & by the folk band Stick In The Wheel as “a psychedelic folk Steely Dan”
There will also be floor spots too, so come along sing a song! From 7.30pm, upstairs at The Selkirk, Tooting Broadway.
