“Papillon - a thrilling mix of rock, world and classical music. Amazing” - CATRIN FINCH, HARPIST
“Sumptuous beauty” - SIMON BROUGHTON, EVENING STANDARD
"A stunning lightning bolt of rock-edged world music” - Q MAGAZINE
Papillon (Anna Phoebe and Nicolas Rizzi) are an acoustic violin guitar duo influenced by Eastern melodies set within cinematic soundscapes. Anna Phoebe has performed throughout the world with various artists (Jethro Tull, Roxy Music, Trans Siberian Orchestra) and the duo have performed at Songlines Encounters Festival at Kings Place - London and played as main support for Bob Dylan at the Rock Legends Festival in Poland. This will be your chance to hear music from their upcoming debut EP, due for release in late 2017.
Support on the night will be a solo set from Alice Phelps. Multi-instrumentalist and leader of an ethereal harp centric collective, with music influenced by folk from near and far, Irish to Chinese, Alice blends this with non traditional and blues infused melodies. Creating ambient, lilting, rhythmic harmonies with the harp allowing the bellowing husky vocals to be perfectly contrasted in a very unusual but beautiful way!
