Following a sold out London double-header at St Pancras Old Church on 2nd November, singer-songwriters Rachel Sermanni and The Lake Poets have announced a series of shows together, commencing on 23rd November. The music of Folk-Noir balladeer Rachel Sermanni has the flesh of folk but, if you were to cut the skin, you would apparently find it pumped with contemporary, genre-blended blood. Perhaps don’t cut it open. The Lake Poets on the other hand is confusingly just one person singular, Sunderland based singer-songwriter Marty Longstaff, whose self-titled debut album was released in autumn 2015 to rave reviews and has spawned the singles ‘Your Face’ and ‘Edinburgh’.
