House and Land is a collaboration of Sarah Louise and Sally Anne Morgan (of the Black Twig Pickers). Together, Sarah and Sally play haunting psychedelic Appalachian folk drone that invokes the rhododendron thickets, creeks and mountains of their local landscape in Western North Carolina. Sarah Louise is a preeminent 12-string guitarist, whose playing is influenced by clawhammer banjo and other nature-based drone styles from around the world. Her lush, hypnotic compositions are bolstered by Sally's droning fiddle style, that incorporates traditional mountain fiddle tunes as well as modern improvisation and minimalism. Sally's playing in the Black Twig Pickers, who have a history of collaborating with guitar heavyweights from Jack Rose to Steve Gunn, has geared her towards this perfect collaboration with Sarah. Together as House & Land, they weave their instrumental prowess with medieval vocal harmonies to create something both rooted in tradition and altogether new.

We are beyond thrilled to announce that Carole Pegg, fiddle-player and singer of early 70s acid-folk legends Mr. Fox, will be performing a rare solo set as part of this evening's bill. Her raw and wayward singing and playing style is an acknowledged influence on House & Land, and it's a privilege to be able to put them in the same room together for the first time. Between 1970 and 1972, Mr. Fox recorded two albums of dark electric folk, whose themes of witchcraft and the rural occult are discussed at length in Rob Young's 'Electric Eden'. After they disbanded, Carole recorded a single solo album 'Carolanne', before moving on to study ethnomusicology. She is currently Faculty Member at the University of Cambridge, specialising in the Tuvan music and shamanic culture of Inner Mongolia.

"Dylan Golden Aycock's lineage is clear: the fingerpicked blues of John Fahey, the swirling compositions of Robbie Basho and the outward-looking Americana of Jim O'Rourke's Bad Timing and The Visitor. That's not a bad crossroads to meet your demons at, especially when so much of what we call American Primitive now is in a state of transformation. Church Of Level Track kicks up dream dust in a positively lush collection of cosmic rags, ambient country tunes and steel-string ragas."
