Kirsty Merryn & Mike Reinstein - May1, 2017

Double Bill

Kirsty Merryn has been turning heads in London’s prestigious folk venues and has now been signed up to support Show Of Hands on their autumn Cathedrals Tour.

She is currently working on an album of original songs focusing on the stories of real and imaginary female heroes, some with Sussex connections.

“An incredibly gifted songwriter and musician….she is a rare talent”  -   Sam Kelly, BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Winner 2016

“Everything about the future will be rubbish – except Kirsty Merryn. I plan to retreat to my bunker and listen to her EP until it all goes away.”  -  The Guardian

“Sassy and sexy, witty and wistful”  -  Steve Knightley, Show of Hands

"Perfect! Poised vocals."   -  Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

A compelling performer and established songwriter, Mike Reinstein is a wonderfully dextrous wordsmith whose incisive analysis of the human condition is leavened with warm humour. 

“ a similar ball park to masters of wordplay like Jake Thackray, Leon Rosselson and Robb Johnson, on whose label he now appears"  -  Colin Irwin, Spiral Earth

"A brilliant singer and songwriter"  -  Mike Harding

“Alluring melodies strewn with beguiling hooks and perceptive lyrics with a perspicacity that could punch a hole through sheet steel”   -  Folkwords

“Music with heart, wit and imagination”  -

“Songs which engage the inner mind as well as the emotions”  -  Fatea
