Russell Joslin

Details

Returning to Florence Arts Centre after a superb show in the summer of 2016, Russell Joslin is a singer-songwriter with folk roots but a punk swagger. His songs are firmly rooted in the here and now. Russell Joslin reframes traditional folk story-telling with a 21st century kick, fusing pertinent and provocative lyrics with an abrasive guitar style and an unflinching honesty. Russell will be playing a set of songs from his three critically-acclaimed albums, plus tracks from his forthcoming new album, and will be joined by the beautiful voice of Australian vocalist Sarah McCaig.

This is folk music refracted through the prism of Velvet Underground, Husker Du and The Sisters of Mercy. Don't expect discreet and decorous folk; rather Joslin empties his heart with honesty, vitality and passionate abandon - 4 out of 5 - Rock n Reel - Harlequins album review.

Over the last couple of years the duet have performed three tours of continental Europe, taking in Finland, Germany and Switzerland, FMM Sines World Music Festival in Portugal, Sark Folk Festival, Lyme Regis Folk Weekend plus numerous high profile London dates including a November gig supporting Martha Tilston.
