Sheffield Gig Selection 31st October – 6th November

[wide]Previews Banner2 | Sheffield Gig Selection 31st October   6th November[/wide]Lanterns on the Lake, Laura J Martin & Cats:For:Peru on Thursday 3rd November at The Harley

The Newcastle sextet heads a very strong line-up at The Harley this week. They mix beautiful folk melodies with subtle electronic infusions to create something rather wonderful. Delicate, delightful and utterly hypnotic. Support comes from the Merseyside minstrel, Laura J Martin, employing her vocals, a loop pedal, a flute and whatever else comes to hand. The cherry on top being our very own sickeningly talented favourites, Cats:For:Peru.
