Hack-Poets Guild – Blackletter Garland
Three of the UK’s most innovative, award-winning folk artists reinvent a collection of historic broadsides – daily song sheets sold for pence from the 16th to 20th centuries – offering a rare and fascinating insight into Britain’s history.
Delving into the inky archives at the Bodleian Libraries and beyond, Lisa Knapp, Marry Waterson and Nathaniel Mann lead a five-piece band bringing broadsides to life for a new generation.
Lisa Knapp – voice, fiddle, autoharp
Marry Waterson – voice
Nathaniel Mann – voice, bowed banjo, electronics and meat cleaver
Barney Morse Brown – cello w/ pedals
