A night of unusual female-focused music, featuring a rare outing for Helen and the Horns, who will be playing songs from their Peel sessions and thier album ‘Hell Hath No Horns’ (plus a couple of new songs), with support from Polish/British chanteuse Katy Carr with her unique and evocative songs, and introducing Honey Birch, an emerging and very talented singer/songwriter, and daughter of The Raincoats’ Gina Birch.
Helen McCookerybook is currently touring the UK as a solo artist and is delighted to be joined by her horn players for this one-off event as Helen and the Horns. John Peel loved the band and they recorded several sessions for him, before signing to RCA in 1985. They released an album on their own label in 1986 before disbanding amicably; this is a rare outing for the band after their ‘best-of’ album release on Damaged Goods in 2015.
Katy Carr is an award winning British with Polish roots recording artist, singer, performer, songwriter and aviator currently residing in London Town, England. An independent musician, she has released five albums on her label Deluce Recordings.
Following Honey Birch’s live debut at New York’s art space Silent Barn, and a once in lifetime slot supporting the Raincoats and Angel Olsen’s one off collaboration in celebration of 40 years of Rough Trade Records at London’s Islington Assembly Hall, she’s set to return to the stage.
Honey makes songs that navigate the nuances of teenage life in London; channelled through a voice that’s both tender, gritty and powerful – much like the city she resides in.
