A late night bar conversation between Sam Carter and Jim Moray (both BBC Folk Award winners in their own right) concluded in the forming of a gleefully raucous guitar band that plays traditional songs and tunes.
False Lights are a folk rock group, formed in the spirit of the genre’s late-‘60s originators but informed by the music of Sam and Jim’s far more recent youth. False Lights made their live debut headlining Suffolk’s Folk East festival in 2014 with joyful turn-it-up-loud thrash of folk songs you can jump to. Based in the traditional music of Great Britain, they have now transcended their original aim - 'to make folk rock for the 21st century’, to become one of England’s most startling and exciting acts. Their first album, 'Salvor', gained five star reviews, a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nomination for best album, and copious airplay on BBC Radio 2, 6 Music and beyond. Starts: 7.30pm Tickets: £16 Venue: The Apex, Bury St Edmunds This event is promoted by The Apex in association with Milkmaid Folk.
A game changer for all involved, and perhaps even the scene in general ★★★★★
