Camden to King’s Cross ( via Mornington Crescent)

Fantastic show at the Constitution in Camden last night – our first with our super-talented new violist and singer Gillian! A real intimate venue, with a great sound, and you absolutely packed it out! There's no feeling like playing to a brilliant crowd – it's why we do what we do, and the audience at last night's show were humblingly awesome. Thank you!

Our next show is at The Harrison in King's Cross (http://harrisonbar.co.uk) for Folkroom Records (http://folkroom.co.uk/) on 14th August. We totally heart the guys at Folkroom – and indeed every band and artist they have on their roster – and are thrilled to be playing for them again at their new residency. The Harrison is pretty much the heart of the London folk scene, so it's a great move! In fact if you're free on 31st July why not come down to The Harrison for the Folkroom launch party, with the incomparable Sophie Jamieson (http://www.sophiejamieson.co.uk/)…

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…
