A band said to be at the forefront of an exciting new wave of UK folk hits the Diss Corn Hall next Friday, as they gear up for another major appearance at this August’s FolkEast Festival.
Mishaped Pearls, a critically-acclaimed seven-piece act, have often had their sound described as rooted in tradition, whilst expanding into progressive folk and rock, eastern modal music and elements of contemporary classical influence.
Their adventurous song combination mixes banjo, saz baglama, bodhran, violin and mandolin mix with acoustic guitar, electric bass and drums, all led by the mezzo soprano voice of Manuela Schuette.
The group’s most recent album, ‘Thamesis’, has so far received universally-positive reviews across the press and media.
The performance at the Corn Hall will commence at 8pm, with local singer songwriter, Daisy Vaughan, as the support act.
Tickets are £10, or £8 for concessions. Visit www.disscornhall.co.uk for more info.
