Event Details

Multi award-winning musicians Nick Pynn and Kate Daisy Grant make a welcome return to The Art House. This two hour show comprises Nick’s catchy, melodic avant-folk tunes (with Kate as his band) and Kate’s original torch/folk/pop songs (with Nick as her band) and features self-made, traditional, toy and curiosity instruments as well as death-defying live looping.

They use a vast array of instruments and curiosities, many self-made. Using live-looping, Nick layers together a wall of sound, featuring his 5 string fiddle, bass pedals, wine glasses, theremin, dulcimer and more. Kate joins Nick to create a two-person orchestra, adding piano, toys and various string instruments. 

Both Nick and Kate garnered 5* reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe and won ‘Best Music Act’ at the Brighton Latest Fringe and Festival Awards 2013.

Nick is a member of Stomp’s Lost and Found Orchestra, and has toured with comedians Boothby Graffoe, Rich Hall and performed for several years in two-handers with Steve Harley (Cockney Rebel) and Arthur Brown. He has won glowing reviews for his 15 years at the Edinburgh Fringe, with his unique mix of storytelling, melodic mastery, technical wizardry.
