FRIDAY 24th AUGUST | GRAIN BARGE | 8pm | £5 Entry
'A fresh emerging act with diverse organic arrangements, their own distinctive approach to song writing and a sound that can only be described as their own. This is the one and only Holika.
Venues all over the South West have opened their doors to this talented trio and every time they leave, their audiences are craving more. They have teased the country with a 3 track EP, performed live for Conversion Live, grabbed the attention of the local media and dazzled many faces at 2011's folk festivals.
Its rare to come across such raw talent as this and its a treat to sit down and listen to their music but to actually witness it is something else entirely. Take a cup of fresh water and pour it over your face... take a brisk walk up a mountain on a clear sunny morning... stand on the highest of buildings and feel the breeze move through your hair... this is what Holika are - a breath of fresh air into this country's music scene.
The master guitarists are fronted by angelic vocals - this is folk music at its best.'
