Tuesday 30th November

Nest collective makes their welcome return to ours for this amazing, widescreen INTERPRETATION of irish folk music.


‘This is sophisticated, atmospheric music’ – Robin Denselow, The Guardian

The Breath is Stuart McCallum (former guitarist of The Cinematic Orchestra), Ríoghnach Connolly and Mcallum’s fellow Cinematic alumni, pianist John Ellis and drummer Luke Flowers.

Born out of Manchester’s fertile music scene they mix Irish folk influences with mesmerizing guitar riffs, anthemic themes and powerful hooks. Connolly’s soulful vocals are interwoven into the electronic fabric of McCallum’s distinctive soundworld. In turns hypnotic, lush, powerfully raw and raucously punchy, their songs entrance, uplift and break your heart as The Breath conjure a kaleidoscope of sound that perfectly frames Connolly’s raw songs and soul cleansing vocals.


‘Folk music with teeth’ -Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

Fishclaw is a band of highly skilled musicians who have congregated together from all over Suffolk and Essex, calling Colchester their home town. With experience in genres including folk, rock, hip hop, jazz, blues and electronic music, the combination of each member bringing their own approach and history is what produces such a strikingly original sound.

£12 Tickets / 20:00 – 23:00
