Dearest Friends,

Kit & Cutter: Adventures in Pre-Modern Music pt. 16 Dan Quinn & Will Duke and Ayarkhaan, The Old Nuns Head, Nunhead Green, Saturday 22nd October 2011, doors 7.30pm, £5 entry

Siberia and Sussex: October began with a blazing heat wave that had us all tall shouldered and smiling, gliding around in our lightest clothes, before descending over night into a grey drizzle with an under bite of frost. The seasons are out of joint… And in a tucked away corner of South East London we play host to warm sounds from English hearths and a blast of unearthly throat-singing from the Siberian wastelands of Yakust.

Will Duke and Dan Quinn play traditional songs from our small densely populated island on melodeon and concertina. Redolent in the busy history, and steeped in the sounds of the South, they perform with a dry wit and friendship built over many years as musical comrades. They sing in unison with a natural sympathy rarely found outside of families. It's a treat to be welcomed into their company for the evening.

Will Duke & Dan Quinn -

Ayarkhaan hail from a very different landscape. Yakust is on the outskirts of Siberia, where less than a million people inhabit a space as large as India. This isolation has helped the preservation of this most distinctive of musical traditions: the three striking ladies who comprise the band sing in unearthly harmony, play the local variant of the Jews harp, the Khomus, and imitate the sounds of nature, birds and air. Not to be missed.

Ayarkhaan -

As if this weren't enough… and we're pretty breathless with excitement considering these two acts… we have floor singers, projections, the raffle de jour, old school reggae on the rub and some murder ballads for good measure. Tell everyone. Bring friends, lovers and enemies,

All our love

K&C x

Brilliant, and what a contrasting bill. Ayarkhaan from Siberia, Quinn and Duke not from Siberia. Quinn very tall, Duke not so tall at all. What more could anyone want? Suggest anyone near London goes to this. Anyone near Stoke-on-Trent however might be well-advised to come to Penkhull Village Hall to dance to Dartmoor's finest: Rob Murch, Jason Rice, Mark Bazeley(aka Moor Music).

Some lovely floor spots have already stepped forward to offer their services. So the evening will boast much more than Sussex and Siberian folk...
