About The Event
As the lockdown restrictions have been eased and we are allowed to have gatherings of up to 30 people indoors/outdoors, we would like to invite you to this first “Live in the Woods” event of 2020.
We will follow the required social distancing restrictions and limit ticket sales to a maximum of 30.
In our aim to support the Arts during this difficult time all proceeds of the event will go to the artist.
Described by Shindig Magazine as, ‘lyrically astute and melodically inventive,’ Elfin Bow’s pastoral
psych-folk holds imagery that blends her twin passions of music and art.
A strict 1970’s church upbringing that frowned upon any kind of pop music, was the catalyst for her
‘quiet rebellion,’ and she saved her pocket money to buy her own radios to listen to covertly under the covers. The discovery of trailblazers like PJ Harvey, Tori Amos and Bjork flung the door wide open for her to find her own voice.
Two successful crowdfunding campaigns enabled the release of her debut album, launched with a live
session on BBC Radio Wales and a single with the Fruits de Mer Record label, recorded with the
Scottish Session Symphony Orchestra.
In stage outfits that interpret her lyrics, Elfin invites moments of musical magic in venues big and
small; a tin shed, living rooms, art galleries, and bookshops have been no less memorable than Theatr
Clwyd, The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Epstein Theatre, and the Bridgewater Hall.
She has performed alongside folk legends, Bonnie Dobson, Robin Williamson, and Chris Wood and had
airplay on BBC 6 Music (Gideon Coe) and BBC Radio Wales (Wynne Evans, Adam Walton.)
Elfin Bow returns to the Woodland Skills Centre for her first live gig since lockdown. It promises to be intimate, poignant, entertaining, and memorable.
