The Smokehouse and Night Folk in the Afternoon on IO Radio proudly present singer-songwriter and folk guitarist David Ian Roberts and experimental folk duo Alula Down.
“David Ian Roberts’ Travelling Bright greets spring perfectly as he sings of kings of sunsets and ancient holloways.” The Guardian
“Travelling Bright is a quietly exceptional debut, dreamy and intimate, but borne up on rich, elaborate arrangements.” UNCUT
Alula Down is an experiment in folk song and minimalism with voice, and instruments made of wood & reeds. It is the duo project of Mark Waters & Kate Gathercole, longtime players in Heed the Thunder, Sproatly Smith and Vaginapocalyse.
