The Lamplight Club – Diane Cluck + Avital Raz
23/04/2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm£12
It’s always a pleasure to welcome back the one and only Diane Cluck. The Virginia-based singer-songwriter of intuitive folk music has been influential in the development of the Anti-folk scene and has collaborated with Jeffrey Lewis and CocoRosie. Her performances here over the years have always been very special and we’re looking forward to hosting her. Get in there quick as it will be a busy one! “Diane Cluck is a virtuosic talent with an emotionality that feels at once ancient and alien. Her mastery of her voice as an ecstatic instrument is so compelling.” – Anohni (of Antony & The Johnsons)
Jerusalem born singer -songwriter Avital Raz is a strikingly original artist with a compelling ability to take the listener down dark and dirty lyrical pathways. Last years release “The Fallen Angel’s Unravelling Descent” -” a genuinely original musical statement, full of wise, exotic and gleefully mordant songs that manage to be simultaneously challenging and melodic…” Folk Radio UK.
After completing a music degree in Israel, She moved to India and studied the ancient art of Dhrupad singing for six years. Avital carriers through Western and Eastern passages. Funny at times, always feisty and possibly even a bit bonkers – The Scotland Herald: ” It is likely to be one of the most compelling things you hear all year.”
She is in Sheffield’s world music band Rafiki Jazz and has recently been developing a theatre show about growing up in Israel. https://www.avitalraz.com
