Spin Cycle at Cecil Sharp House


EFDSS.CSH_spin-cycle_banner-550x113 We’d be delighted if you were able to join us Next Thursday 25th September at 7.30pm as sampler-cultureclash presents Spin Cycle as the finale event of Yan Tan Tethera at the English Folk Dance and Song Society.

Help us to celebrate, toast and draw to a close a wonderful season of events – as a host of traditional musicians, Gaelic and English songs combine with beatboxers, electronics, and all manner of textile machines and sampling goodness in an exploration of all things that spin, rotate and oscillate.

Joining sampler-cultureclash regulars and previous Spin Cycle performers David Littler, Jason Singh, Hector MacInnes and Anne Martin is Aimee Leonard and the Dulwich Folk Choir, alongside textile artists Deidre Nelson; Rachael Matthews (from Prick Your Finger); and musicians Laurel Swift and Ben Moss.

After five months residency, the Graffiti Chairs will be gathered up from various sites around Camden to be displayed together for the first time. Encouraged by Mr X Stitch’s cross stitch wizardry and tutoring, locals have been busy stitching their textile song related words to transform the chairs.

Catch the final performance from Shane Waltener and his Bobbin Dancers, following the success of their Lace Tell stairwell weave-in; the film of which created by Roswitha Chesher will premier during the evening.

The 25 September will be the last chance to view the exhibition featuring new work from Freddie Robins, Prick Your Finger, Stewart Easton, Shane Waltener and the McGrath Makers; alongside printed broadsides of textile songs from the Vaughan Willians Memorial Library and the Pepys Library.

Promoted by the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS)

Spin Cycle was originally commissioned by Atlas Arts with Deirdre Nelson and performed at Skye Bike Festival 2013.

We’d love to see you there. from David and the Yan Tan Tethera artists, sampler-cultureclash collective and everyone at EFDSS.
