Talis Kimberley

Talis KimberleyWe are delighted to welcome back Talis Kimberley after her lovely support slot last year. Talis presents contemporary, literate folk songs with green/political edges & a warm, whimsical heart.  Wiltshire-based but performing nationally, Talis performs solo & with her multi-skilled band, whose core line-up comprises Chantelle Smith on co-vocals and percussion, and Simon Fairbourn on bass, bassoon, whistles and occasional trumpet. For selected gigs Jan Simlat joins in on bass and percussion –oh, and everyone sings harmonies. Talis’s songs are rooted in tradition but inspired by books, cakes, tea, history, socks, geo-politics & fish, among other things…grace tony

Also joining us all the way from Tennesee are Grace and Tony who are a ‘Punkgrass’ duo over here on their UK tour, Seend being their last night.  Yeah we’d never heard of punkgrass either but think of punk and think of bluegrass and somehow merge them together and you end up with something amazing and fascinating, can’t wait!
