SPRINGLEFINCH!

Hello there! Now that winter is over, warblers are warbling, cuckoos are cuckoo-ing and it won’t be long before we hear the first Ringlefinch of the spring. A little bird tells us that this will happen at the monthly Folking Around night at Woodys Bar & Kitchen in Kingston-upon-Thames on Wednesday 3rd May. Alongside old favourites we’ll be giving a first live airing to some new songs from our upcoming debut album which we can’t wait to share with you later this year as it’s sounding epic!

NEW YEAR, NEW MUSIC!

Greetings Ringlefriends! Things may appear to have been a tad quiet on the Ringle-front lately but in fact exciting things are afoot. We are busy holed up in a studio recording our debut album! It will appear later this year but in the meantime we are occasionally venturing out, blinking into the daylight, in order to play some gigs.

On Saturday 28th January we will be playing the Folkroom Faux Croon event, a night devoted to swing classics performed by various acts from the Folkroom roster. So come along and witness the new Rat Pack, London folk-scene style!

Then on Wednesday 1st February we are headlining the Folkroom Fortnightly with amazing support from Sincere Deceivers, Emily Mae Winters and Laura Greaves. We are busy honing a few new songs to debut at this gig and they are sounding pretty damn exciting!

We hope to see you at one or both of these gigs. If you’re there do come up and say hello!

Summer Festivals!

Ringlefinch seven

Hello there!

Lots of exciting stuff happening at at Ringlefinch Towers right now – here are the top stories…

We are performing with many other wonderful acts at Home Farm Fest 2016 in Yeovil on the Folkroom stage! We’ll be playing main support on Saturday at around 9pm. The festival runs from Friday to Sunday, so please do pop along and support all the other great artists that will be performing throughout the weekend. Tickets can be found on the link below, and it’s all in a good cause:

You may have noticed that there are seven (yep, count ’em, SEVEN) people in the picture above… That’s because our incredibly talented and basically amazing viola player Gillian has decided she can’t resist the lure of the stomping good-time Ringlefinch, and is going to be joining us again for some of our summer shows, possibly more! Starting, of course with Home Farm Festival this weekend. Our new expanded line-up is sounding absolutely epic, and we are beyond excited to be playing with Gillian again! So if you can’t come and see us this weekend you can check out the gigs throughout the summer that we’ll be playing, two of which we can reveal now…

Firstly, on Saturday 16th July we’ll be playing at the last ever Music In Wanstead Park, and then the very next weekend on Saturday 23rd July we’ll be joining some of our favourite acts on the Before The Gold Rush curated Grove Stage at the Alexandra Palace Summer Festival.

More to come over the summer, but you’ll have to make do with that for now. Look forward to seeing you all soon!

Big love
Ringlefinch

Gigs, gigs in the springtime!

We have a couple of exciting gigs coming up which promise to be the best showcase yet for the new line-up. On Friday 5th February we will be playing two sets at the Watford Pump House followed by a gig on Saturday 6th February at St. Gabriel’s Church in Wanstead.

In March we have a couple more. We’ll be headlining at Folkroom on Wednesday March 2nd, at the Harrison in Kings Cross. The Folkroom collective have been very good to us (including signing us up for our first proper gig!) so it will be great to be back there again. We’ll also be playing at the Finsbury in Green Lanes on Tuesday March 8th, as support to a hugely fun band called the Eskies (check out one of their videos here).

Hopefully see some of you lovely folks there!

Big News!

Hello hello!

It’s been a big week here at Ringlefinch Towers – we’re tremendously excited to welcome two new members to the band, Nicole on violin and William on cajon! Yes, we’re basically working up to becoming an orchestra, one musician at a time…

We had our first rehearsal last night, and BY GUM it was fun! William and Nicole will be joining us at our show on Sunday at The Lamb (https://www.facebook.com/events/436156019925703/), so if you want to be the first to hear the new-look, new-sound Ringlefinch then bring your bones down to Surbiton – we’ll be on around 7pm!

Good times ahoy!
