DUE TO ILLNESS, THIS SHOW HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO WEDNESDAY 15TH MAY 2024.
The Black Bird Collective and The Barrel House Ballroom, Totnes presents…
LON DUBH (meaning ‘blackbird’ in Irish) plus support from Anna Ling, Branwen and Anna Anise.
Lon Dubh are a three part harmony trio singing hypnotic original songs inspired by landscapes of Ireland and its ancient folklore. Expect carefully crafted songs for three voices that sound like they’ve always existed.
Hailing from Ireland and England, Lon Dubh are Branwen Kavanagh, Anna Ling and Anna Anise. Summer 2023 saw their first international performance as a trio at Stimmen Festival Ettiswil in Switzerland.
All three are established solo artists in their own right, drawing upon folk traditions in their own unique ways. Branwen Kavanagh is a prolific composer and songwriter, musician, sculptor, storyteller, puppeteer, visual artist, writer of surreal visual plays and a lively adventurer from the West of Ireland. Most of the songs the trio will sing are Branwen’s original compositions.
Anna Ling is a playful and poetic singer/songwriter, choir leader, and music teacher who connects audiences with her engaging charisma and sing-a-long sections. She’s influenced by a strong connection to traditional British folk music and a long-running fascination with weird and wonderful singing styles from across the globe.
Anna Anise is a folk musician and arts producer, folding traditional Celtic tunes into her songwriting and supporting fellow women and non-binary artists through creative projects. She’s never far away from storytelling lyricism and enigmatic melodies.
Between them, Branwen, Anna Ling and Anna Anise have a wealth of experience in the folk/alt scenes playing at festivals and venues across the country. The trio have been deepening their sound at an old mill in the South Devon countryside this year, and are now embarking on their first UK tour.
