About this Event

Born in Rome, Franc moved to London at a young age, learning to play violin and guitar while surrounded by a wide range of musical influences from Muddy Waters to Lucio Dalla. Like all good troubadours, he spent a lot of time touring before making his first records. His previous album The Marvel Age received effusive coverage from the likes of RNR, Classic Rock and Acoustic magazines, as well as Folk Radio UK who rated it Album of the Month, while his songs have been played on BBC national and regional shows, including Dermot O’Leary, Janice Long and Roddy Hart.

Having begun 2018 in New York City, creating a series of straight-to-vinyl 7” singles through Leesta Vall Recordings in Brooklyn, Cinelli returned to London to commence work on a new set of songs, some of which would eventually fall together in the completion of his most recent album release - Night Songs. This collection joins together a healthy dose of spiritual cleansing and demon conquering with the help of varied influences crossing both Eastern and Western folk music, from Blaze Foley and John Martyn to N. Ravikiran and Ravi Shankar.

‘The Marvel Age summons images of endless horizons, straight rails and songs sung for a place to sleep; jump the train and listen.’ - Folk Radio UK

‘A rootsy, bluesy, folky confection whose superpower appears to be the ability to fuse a hummable tune with thoughtful, thought-provoking lyrics.’ - RnR Magazine

‘Singer-songwriter with inviting rambling tendencies.’ 8/10 – Americana UK

‘A road album evoking images of long distance car journeys through barren wastelands.’ - Acoustic Magazine

Based in the North East but with roots in Staffordshire and India, Bill (Belinda) Jones grew up playing jigs and reels in her dad’s ceilidh band, while singing pop and rock round the house. Her 2000 debut ‘Turn to Me’ won the BBC Radio 2’s Horizon Award. Panchpuran (2001) and Two Year Winter (2003) followed. Through Bill’s heavy touring schedule and as a third of the American/Irish/British Faire Winds trio (with Anne Hills and Aoife Clancy) Bill built a reputation as a singer with an exceptional voice and an entertaining stage presence. And now, fifteen years after taking a short break, Bill is back with ‘Wonderful Fairytale’ - the long-awaited fourth album. ‘

This is an assured, perfectly sequenced, beautifully arranged and performed set of songs that speak to the listener. The playing and the singing have a gravitas and consummate power, this is a performer who has come back as a major talent’ - FATEA magazine

‘An exceptional album that confirms that this gifted performer still has so much to offer.’ - Neil McFadyen, Folk Radio, April 2019
