Lori and Laura will be performing solo and for the first time as a duo.

Lori Goldston’s voice as a cellist, acoustic or amplified, is both rough and refined. Her music moves easily across borders and genres, often in collaboration with bands, composers, improvisors, choreographers, writers and film makers, including Earth, Mirah, Nirvana, David Byrne, Stuart Dempster, Greg Kelley, Ellen Fullman, Jherek Bischoff, Broken Water, O Paon and many, many others. She has released solo albums on Mississippi Records and Sub Rosa, and will release a duo with Jessika Kenney later this year on Mexico’s Substrata.

Laura Cannell is a violinist & recorder player from the UK. She specialises in overbowed fiddle and performs on double recorders. In the past three years she has released three solo albums to critical acclaim appearing in BBC Radio 3’s Top Twelves Albums of the Year, The Guardian’s Top Five Experimental Albums of the Year, and The Wire Magazine’s Top 50 Albums. Laura regularly tours throughout the UK & Europe and is regularly broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and has been a guest contributor on 6Music with Stuart Maconie. She was recently interviewed in The Guardian and The Financial Times, and has collaborated with Charles Hayward, Rhodri Davies, Richard Dawson, Mark Fell, Oliver Coates, Bass Clef amongst others. Laura explores the spaces between experimental, traditional and medieval music.
