Event description

Description

Returning for a fourth summer filling London’s green spaces with music. A concert like no other: unamplified, outdoors, around a fire. Gather together and listen.

Curly Strings

Curly Strings is a four-piece band, that draws its inspiration from American bluegrass and their own personal heritage in the current Estonian cultural space. Intense and playful ensemblework, hauntingly beautiful melodies and sincere presentation of their music forms the main basis of the Curly Strings soundscape.

“Estonian lyrics and tradition meld with American string band influences to create a sound at once familiar, yet unlike anything you’ve heard before.” - Casey Driessen

The band’s rise in the Estonian music scene in 2013 was a phenomenon unlike any other: a folk music artist becomes mainstream by collecting music awards and being the top seller in music stores for more than a year.

“Superb bluegrass-based music from Estonia” - Americana UK

Described as "fiercely passionate" by BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction DJ Max Reinhardt Fran & Flora captivate their audiences with soulful laments, exquisite songs, irresistible dance tunes, and tales of their musical adventures.
