Venue Focus Piece #3 // Ernest & Ouseburn Farm
Next up in our venue focus series are the intimate stages at Ernest and our newest venue Ouseburn Farm which both highlight the musical diversity Evolution Emerging 2017 has to offer.
Headlining our stage at Ernest is County Durham singer songwriter Harri Endersby whose music is heavily influenced by the region’s crowd of prestigious folk singers and musicians. Her lyrics are firmly rooted in the pastoral and the world of storytelling. Her stripped-back performance is sure to be one of the most engaging aspects of the festival.
Similarly, Belfast songstress Rebekah Fitch is another rising talent worth taking the time out to see at Ernest on 27th May. With influences ranging from Florence and the Machine and Sia to Amy Winehouse and Lorde, you can expect a real eclectic set from the talented musician next month.
Have you ever heard of ghost-folk? Well that’s what Newcastle-based Sheffield native Warrilow has on offer at our 2017 event. His melodic guitar playing and atmospheric tracks are sure to bring a real element of style to Ernest when he kicks off proceedings and we can’t wait to find out more about him.
Next we must turn our attention to Ouseburn Farm which perhaps holds the title for the most intimate venue at Evolution Emerging 2017. Headliner Afnan Prince will bring his stunning live show to the Ouseburn with his heart-touching lyrics and infectious melodies sure to provide a standout performance.
Joining Afnan will be Darlo alt-pop solo artist Eve Conway who’ll be bringing her blend of folk, RnB and gospel to the valley and is sure to delight the ears of many. Whilst Newcastle outfit Ludd Heat, whose emphasis on playback media using tape players as instruments is sure to be an intriguing affair.
Last but not least, electronic producer Jennifer Walton will be kicking things off in fine fashion with her dark experimental style and complex soundscapes sure to attract the interest of many.
