Ringlefinch Listens: Volume 1


We’ve got some fairly eclectic musical tastes as bands go. Andy’s taste is some of the most eclectic, and he’s put together a short detour through some of the more blissful, surreal and frankly worrisome recesses of his music box. We hope you enjoy! Or at least, find it illuminating…

Quick update…

Been a little quiet on the Ringlefinch front lately as we've been focussing on rehearsing, writing new material and finding a new violist… Also the occasional summer holiday…

We'll be leaping back into action on the 26th at the Constitution in Camden! Are you coming?

Pottered down to the Slaughtered Lamb this evening to catch Sophie Jamieson’s “Where” EP launch. She played an absolutely spellbinding set – hauntingly spare, powerfully affecting songs cut with endearingly shy banter. A stunning voice as both a singer and a songwriter.

If you’ve not checked her out yet, her latest single Waterloo is here:

Also playing was the wonderful Oh Sister (aka Sarah Berresford – not the Australian 3-piece bluegrass band of the same name…). She’s got a voice like smoked honey and a storyteller’s knack with a song, and is also well worth your time:

All in all a cracking night, and cracking folks by the bucketload. More Wednesdays like that please!

Wanted: Fiddler…


…roof optional.

Ringlefinch are looking for a fiddle player while Rosie is off on maternity leave (congrats!). Rosie brought lashings of magical viola to the Ringlefinch fun-cake which we desperately miss, so if you or anyone you anyone know plays viola or violin and is interested in playing some London-based folky swing, please get in touch! Tremendous musical adventures await…
