Stick In The Wheel

Date:Sun 27 Mar
Venue:J2 (seated show)
Price:£15.50 adv

Stick In The Wheel’s work is rooted in traditional music and song, informed by the modern electronic music that grew out of their hybrid East London heritage. 

Nicola Kearey and Ian Carter use centuries-old work-songs that speak to present-day issues of class - an inherently political act - as well as historical material from Saxon poetry to Medieval carols.

Their third studio album, Hold Fast, is a deeply layered journey of hope and resistance, with a sonic palette that is wider yet more nuanced than ever, with synths, spoken word and psychedelic guitar fuzz. SITW continue to push forward the contemporary tradition of roots music, whilst maintaining and celebrating music from our collective histories - conjuring the past to point toward the future.
