Telling the Bees @ Folk House // Sat 14th Nov (7.30pm) // Cost: £10

Telling the Bees come to Bristol on their Autumn 2015 tour with their new album Steer by the Stars. The group, originally formed in Oxford, will bring their “darkly crafted folk” to the Folk House on Saturday, November 14th.

Intelligent lyrics, exotic rhythms and modes, and instruments as varied as fiddle, mandolin, cello, double bass, concertina, stomp box and English bagpipes are brought together in skilful arrangements, wild at times, gentle at others. Telling the Bees will share the evening with the beautifully melancholic sounds of Barney Morse-Brown, a.k.a. Duotone, who will return to Bristol with his most recent album Lets Get Low.
