Folklore Venue – 186 Hackney Road, Hoxton, London E2 7QL –
Grab your tickets HERE for a magical night of music and great vibes at one of London’s best kept, little, secret, underground venues
First in a series of monthly fundraiser shows for the incredible WAR CHILD charity, Live at Folklore Launch party features 4 incredible acts including Cookie, Stacey Cohen, Wild and Nyah Grace (Performing in no particular order).
After the acts the night opens up into an open mic/jam session where locals and travellers alike are invited to sign up and share a song from their own country, sing, or play us a cover. Or just kick back, listen, & enjoy. There will be a guitar & piano on site, but absolutely no obligation to play either.
The launch night is going to be extra special as its an Air BnB Social Impact Concert which means 100% of ticket & door money will go directly to the War Child Charity. War Child helps keep vulnerable children in nine war zones safe from harm and provides them with ongoing support, education, counselling & more.
Performing on the night:
Stacey Cohen (Host): is a singer songwriter from London. Inspired by nature & the urban landscape, her hypnotic sound playfully explores the boundaries of acoustic & electronic music. Her voice is rich, authentic & unforgettable. Her lyrics poetic & thought-provoking.
She has performed at venues & festivals across the UK, including Glastonbury. Her songs have been played on BBC Radio & beyond. Expect stripped down acoustic versions of heart-felt songs, with wide dynamic range, & hooky melodies, in an exciting, magical, intimate setting.
Wild: Singer-songwriter Wild’s healing presence is known well for soothing audiences. Their songs for voice and acoustic guitar are inspired by blues, folk and country, and are a call to the Soul.
Drawing from their wanders in nature, specially the Hampshire woods, Wild brings these stories to life, and weaves a journey through the woods, fields, along rivers and into starry nights.
Nyah Grace: All the way from the USA, Nyah is steadily gaining a following for her mesmerising live performances and original material. Last year Nyah Grace performed live shows in LA and London and she is excited to be playing for us as part of a small European tour for autumn 2018.
Following invitations to co-write with “Eg” White (Sam Smith, Dua Lipa), Paul O’Duffy (Amy Winehouse,
Hans Zimmer) and Steve Chrisanthou (Corinne Bailey Rae, Lianne la Havas), Nyah’s debut release is eagerly anticipated for 2019.
Cookie: Merges beatbox with acoustic sounds, which acts at the perfect accompaniment to his unique and powerful voice.
