About this event

The Art House are delighted to present an in person and online live experience with one of our all-time favourite acts.

Lunatraktors are choreographer and percussionist Carli Jefferson, and nonbinary vocalist and composer Clair Le Couteur.

Influenced by flamenco, post-punk and trip hop, their’ 'broken folk' sound strips trad folk back to rhythm and voice. The pair turned heads in 2019 when their DIY debut This Is Broken Folk – recorded live in a viaduct arch by Ramsgate harbour – made it onto MOJO Magazine's Top Ten Folk Albums.

New releases blend analogue synth, whistles, accordion with tuned drums, vocal harmonies and a hybrid of tap dance and body percussion, which Jefferson developed after touring with Stomp.

Reimagining British folk through a shared teenage absorption in dance music and art rock, Lunatraktors have built up a passionate fanbase through performances at festivals, art galleries, museums, theatres and queer cabarets. Jefferson’s compulsion to dance while drumming prompted Lunatraktors to put together a tonal percussion kit, providing both rhythmic and melodic elements to their sound. A double act in the old fashioned sense, Le Couteur’s channeling voices of multiple tragi-comic characters matches Jefferson’s hyper-expressive performance style.

Since their debut performance in 2017, Lunatraktors have created over 200 shows, commissions and lectures for a huge range of arts spaces, music venues and festivals across the UK.

Following the Bonefires EP in 2020, Lunatraktors second album The Missing Star is due on May Day, 2021.

This event will be held as a 'hybrid' in person and online show. The online aspect of the event will be streamed live to Zoom, from multiple angles with top notch sound. We have an online host to chat to and encourage participation in the text chat making it an interactive, social, personal experience rather than a flat broadcast. You can also choose to have your camera on and be seen here at The Art House and by the performer.

Live stream tickets are free to our Patreon supporters who will also be able to watch the show back later if they can't make this time.

Tickets are fully refundable if you test positive for Covid, have symptoms or if you have been asked to self isolate, provided you let us know before the event starts.
