Saturday 5th December 2015 – Featuring Stick In The Wheel


The first act to do a second stint at TOOTING FOLK so far, Stick In The Wheel play London folk songs in their own unique, raw, authentic and original style.

Stick In The Wheel’s debut album F​rom Here​ is a raw, fresh take on English Folk music. Their now trademark abrasive delivery of both original and traditional tracks addresses issues that still have relevance today, re-visiting traditions long-lost, as well as those disappearing right before us. The band is spearheaded by Nicola Kearey’s fierce uncompromising vocal delivery, accompanied by Ian Carter’s hypnotic Dobro playing, Fran Foote’s harmony vocal and underpinned by sparse taut arrangements.

The album has received much acclaim not only from the folk press but also beyond…

“A triumph” The Observer

“Splendidly pugnacious” The Telegraph

“Inspirationally abrasive” The Guardian

“The hottest new folk band for ages…” Ian Anderson, fRoots magazine
