.LightGarden

May 30th: .LightGarden

 LightGarden began life as two musicians,David Moss and Masha Kaestner back in 2007.They stumbled upon guitarist Rob Colquhuon (and vice versa)in 2011 and suddenly discovered they were a three-piece.The igniting spark was a request to support two performances by Tibetan monks from the Tashi Lhunpo monastery,in October 2006.At these concerts,the combination of overtone chanting and church organ was born,which has touched audiences in a magical and unusual way ever since.Their music brings together many world influences along with classical training and their native folk/traditional roots in the music of UK,Ireland,Russia and Germany.Winners of a PRSF award for new and original music,LightGarden work from an intention to simply creat the music which they feel connects to heart and body and pretty much everything else.They have performed at a range of venues and festivals including the Edinburgh Fring,Rosslyn Chapel,Limetree Festival,York Fiesta,Glastonbury,Bath Fringe,and at Musicport Festival.

Antoine Architeuthis

June 27th: Antoine Architeuthis

Antoine is a singer/songwriter who creates his own brand of acoustic folk rock using the beautiful Irish bouzouki. Drawing influence from traditional English folk music, mixed with acoustic rock and some Indian spiritual music, Antoine attempts to make each song a unique journey through different sounds and emotions, ranging from happy and upbeat to somber and reflective. His music has been likend to that of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and Pentangle, from which he draws much of his influence. Mixing original material with traditional folk songs, Antoine's live performances are energetic, entertaining and have a veriety that keeps the audience hooked on his every note.
