Betwixt & Between

Shovel Dance Collective/C Joynes
For the seventh Betwixt & Between we’re changing the format a little. In place of another solo outing, Jacken is appearing as one member of the Shovel Dance Collective, a newly formed group of nine musicians exploring the folk traditions of these islands (and beyond). While nurturing the history of the source material, the collective brings to it sensibilities drawn from drone, improvisation, and metal. In so doing, they aim to uncover proto-feminist narratives and queer histories, and to make heard the voices of the working people that created and create the wealth of the world. On the other side we’re honoured to be joined by C Joynes as this edition’s contributing artist. Cambridge-based Joynes will be well known to many, as the master of a magpie approach to fingerpicking English parlour guitar. Recently leading C Joynes & The Furlong Bray, an ensemble featuring Dead Rat Orchestra, Cam Deas and Nick Jonah Davis, or working alongside dbh, Gavin Clarke, and Andrew Cheetham as Waterless Hills, Joynes is appearing solo here with an electrifying live set.
