CANCELLED: Ruth Theodore + Buffo's Wake at The Forge
Thursday, May 29, 2014 - 19:30 - 23:30
The Folk Ghetto at The Forge
+ DJ Penny Metal
Ruth Theodore’s songs fascinate audiences with their distinctive lyricism while her upbeat performances exude a contagious sense of fun. Performing with her multi-talented, barber-shop-blues trio (Elliot Jett, Jigh Ejakpovi and Wayne Thompson) Ruth's skills as a producer really shine. These original, delta blues influenced songs, are raw and energetic but lyrically, she remains as insightful as ever, tearing around her six string with a brass slide and true conviction.
Gypsy punk lunatics with a taste for the macabre. Festival veterans, regularly appearing at some of the UK's biggest festivals, including Glastonbury (2013), Bestival (2013) Secret Garden Party (2011 - 2013) and Boomtown (2011 - 2013), as well as live performances on BBC Introducing, Buffos Wake will grab you, and leave you dancing like a man possessed. Guaranteed to raise hell.
