Event description

Description

Burd Ellen is a new solo project from Debbie Armour featuring Gayle Brogan (Pefkin, Barrett’s Dottled Beauty) and Lucy Duncan (Luki).


Burd Ellen

Burd Ellen use traditional song to explore and evoke dark landscapes and deep stories. Innovative instrumentation, drone and sound-wash support detailed vocal work to create a unique sonic atmosphere.

Burd Ellen self-released their debut album SILVER CAME in Feb 2019, on limited edition CD. A record exploring women's narratives in British folk song, SILVER CAME investigates ideas of persistence, defiance, devotion and transformation. The album was recorded by Jer Reid (Painted X-Ray, Claquer, Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra) over two days in the rehearsal space of Glasgow Theatre Arts Collective.

"sonically adventurous ... with an emotional range and a raw inventiveness which is all too rare in contemporary folk circles." - Alex Neilson

"A masterclass in shimmering, ethereal folk music... Cannot recommend highly enough" - Kyle Lonsdale, Earth Recordings

"the sonic equivalent of Ingmar Bergman's immaculate Winter Light" - Stewart Gardiner, Concrete Islands

Pefkin

Pefkin is the solo project of Gayle Brogan, one-half of the psych-pop duo Electroscope and Barret's Dottled Beauty. Pefkin can be characterised by their enchanting combination of folksong, strings and drone. Drones and electronics flutter around the stark and brittle strings, carried by Gayle's hushed utterings.

Pefkin has several releases on Sheffield’s own Sonido Polifonico Records
