The quality of the music just gets better at CICCIC and with the song writing, musicianship, vocal, guitar and performance skills of Elliot Hall and Sarah Larkham; plus the talented Charlie Rose on violin and piano; we know you will love our Americana Folk music night.
LARKHAM AND HALL are stalwarts of the Bristol music scene, having played separately and together in the city for a couple of decades – along the way, Elliot Hall garnered the ‘Bristol songwriter of the year’ award. As songwriters they dig deep into real life stories to bring bittersweet narratives of hardships, travel, work, love and family. Inspired by the folk, country and blues movement of the 1960s and 70s, their music is often said to be reminiscent of the great songwriting of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Bruce Springsteen.
They are inspired by the stories of everyday people – the strength and resilience, heartache and loss. Their interest in mental health extends into their work with their own music and mental health charity (Mind Your Music) and years of music workshops in drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres. Elliot and Sarah are also music teachers and teach from their houseboat in Bristol Marina.
Elliot is often known to bring several guitars on stage – his beloved, travel-scarred Martin guitar, the Crafter he has written 2,000 songs on, and his nylon-string Spanish guitar (he also has a passion for flamenco music). The two of them both play guitar and mandolin, and their vocal harmonies have been crafted and polished over ten years of playing music and singing together.
Over the past couple of years they have teamed up with Bristol musician CHARLIE ROSE who has performed with many of the city’s finest and most well-known acts. Charlie plays stunningly on both violin and piano – sometimes even both on one song!
