Alison Cotton w/Luce Mawdsley

We are delighted to present an evening with dark folk songstress, Alison Cotton, following the release of her 2024 album Engelchen. Support TBA.

Since her first solo work manifested in 2018, Alison Cotton has quietly become one of the UK’s most extraordinarily evocative aural explorers, building eerily arcane tapestries of supernatural beauty from her multi-layered viola, incantatory vocals and harmonium. If Alison’s chosen main instruments have predictably drawn comparisons with The Marble Index-era Nico and Cale, these ultimately prove superfluous as the cathedral vault soundscapes Alison crafts with producer Mark Nicholas soar into a magical realm entirely of her own making, haunted by folk’s dark ancient spirit at the same time as providing a much needed time suspending antidote to tumultuous modern times.

“Cotton may expand folk’s raw emotions into more avant garde territories, but they still feel possessed by a blood-red muscle memory that goes back centuries” – Folk Album of the Month. The Guardian

“Alison Cotton’s solo work..... speaks of places, people and stories not quite of this world, while orchestrating folk and drone elements meticulously as if following an arcane ritual.” The Wire
