MOULETTES

Supported by special guest Liz Green

Moulettes are a Brighton-based folk-rock band who also incorporate prog, pop and classical elements to stunningly original effect.

The band have enthralled audiences at the likes of End Of The Road, Cambridge Folk, Cropredy, Latitude and Bestival on the way. They have also supported Mumford & Sons, Seasick Steve, The Levellers, Seth Lakeman and The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, impressing all and sundry.

They were nominated in the Best Group category in the BBC's Alternative BRIT Awards and won the equivalent category in 2012 in the Fatea Awards and the 2013 Spiral Earth Awards.

Moulettes will be releasing their third album Constellations in Spring 2014, featuring contributions from The Unthanks, Arthur Brown, legendary sessioneer Herbie Flowers and Blaine Harrison from Mystery Jets amongst many others.

"Moulettes are among the frontrunners of the new British acoustic scene thanks to their sophisticated, unpredictable approach, matching exquisite female harmony vocals against complex, swirling backing featuring violin, cello and bassoon. Adventurous, charming, edgy as well as upbeat."- The Guardian

The band will be accompanied at The Met by their long-time friend and colleague, Liz Green - a singer songwriter whose voice is a touch of Sandy Denny's bittersweet lamentation with a gritty soul and pathos more in common with Billie Holliday and Nina Simone, all topped off with a street-smart snarl and disdain that is unmistakably home-hewn.
