Vena Portae (feat. Emily Barker) plus The Diamond Roadshow
Brunel Goods Shed, Stroud GL5 3AP
Friday 15 August doors 7.30pm

Vena Portae (feat. Emily Barker)An interesting evening of folk based music featuring BAFTA award-winning singer songwriter Emily Barker with her new band Vena Portae also featuring a audio visual folk duo from Berlin, Digger Barnes & Pencil Quincy.
Vena Portae are an Anglo-Swedish alt-folk band, comprised of BAFTA award-winning singer songwriter Emily Barker, songwriter and performer Dom Coyote, and Swedish producer and multi-instrumentalist Ruben Engzell. Vena Portae’s eponymous debut album draws the listener into an epic journey of love, loss, memory and longing. From the heady alt-pop highs of ‘Flames & Fury’ to the dark, hypnotic depths of ‘Transatlantic’, this is an album that is atmospheric, moving and irresistible.

The Diamond RoadshowThe Diamond Road Show is the work of Hamburg-based artists Digger Barnes & Pencil Quincy. The show sits in between concert and cinema. It is a travel through dream structures, events and unfoldings that inventively blend road-movie aesthetics with experimental film techniques. The soundscape is created by Digger Barnes; a one-man-band, storyteller and outlaw. Each song a cinematic and atmospheric journey itself drawing on influences from Americana, film-soundtrack and folk music. The visuals are created by low-brow Pencil Quincy and his Magic Machine. Quincy combines early cinematic and animation technology with his imimitable, vaudeville style.
