Something Sleeps (formerly Nueva) + Nick Siepman

8 June, 7.45pm at Mum’s Bistro

Free admission (collection taken)

Melting their signature vocal harmonies into soulful string arrangements, this is emotive folk music, inspired by nature and the times we live in.

With a love of traditional music, but not always for traditional messages, Something Sleeps seek to stay true to the spirit of folk music whilst weaving the words into songs that move with the times.

Featuring vocal harmony obsessed Fiona Fey and Rey Yusuf (formerly Tell Tale Tusk) on guitars and vocals, Monica Viñoly on vocals and violin, and Josh Considine on Cello.

Nick Siepman performs traditional and original material which draws from history, myth and the richness of nature.

He has played in venues across the London folk scene both as a solo artist singing traditional and original folk songs, and as a member of Feorin and Jessica Law and the Outlaws.

Linda Moylan

13 July, 7.45pm at Mum’s Bistro

Free admission (collection taken)

Linda Moylan is a London based, Irish born singer songwriter. Her second full album ‘The Merchant’ has a distinctly folk flavour and she is thrilled that it has been produced by English folk royalty in the form of Show Of Hands’ Phil Beer.

Her music explores a wide array of themes from forgotten fateful stories and uncelebrated heroines of the past to her own personal and family experiences.

Linda draws an ethereal energy flow from her inspirations, citing numerous artists as influences, including: Sandy Denny, Melanie, Leonard Cohen, Nina Simone and the poetry of Ted Hughes.

Her 2018 EP ‘London Irish’ was recorded and produced by Gavin Glass in Orphan Studios, Dublin and received critical plaudits and airplay in all the right places.

In 2020 Linda released a duet with the late, great folk legend Julie Felix – recorded and released just before the sad loss of Julie. This duet was the result of their friendship which grew since sharing a folk festival bill a few years ago.
