We’re delighted to be helping Hannah Nicholson launch her new single!

Blending soulful melancholia with the controlled artistry of a classically trained singer, Hannah Nicholson gives voice to the light and dark of human emotion.

Having previously performed as one half of the Manchester based psych-folk duo Bird to Beast, she has now crafted her own individual musical identity: a blend of choral, electro and folk, stitched together with a thread that runs from J. S. Bach to Jane Weaver.

With a new single released shortly, she plays an exclusive launch show with string quartet at the Castle Hotel.

Main support comes from Lucy & the Caterpillar. It’s a name you might be familiar with, having been a regular around the north’s music scene a few years ago, earning herself much mainstream press in the process and playing alongside the likes of Adele, Florence and Laura Marling among others. After taking a brief hiatus, spending time opening her own vintage boutique shop in Hebden Bridge – which is also named ‘Lucy & the Caterpillar’ – and launching her own clothing label Lucille, Lucy is now back with new music, and better than ever.

Opening the show is Bandini. Bandini's lo-fi, timeless songs arrive fully formed and without unnecessary embellishment. With a yearning, vulnerable voice accompanied only by sparse acoustic guitar, these deceptively direct melodies soon burrow into the gaps between nostalgia and memory, between child-like innocence and painful life experience. Little is known of the reclusive singer-songwriter’s background and personality, other than his love of analogue recording, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. Sometimes, especially in our age of information overload, it’s better to let the songs speak for themselves.
