Late Night Lullabies: D O W L N D R A K E

70s folk and Renaissance lute with Nick Drake and John Dowland

Annelies Van Gramberen & Sim Van Thienen / K L A N G Collective (BE)

English Renaissance meets 70s folk music in D O W L N D R A K E – In Darkness Let Me Dwell. An adventurous homage to John Dowland (1563-1626) and Nick Drake (1948-1974). The songs of these ‘Knights of Melancholy’ are the springboard for a memorable musical trip that lets the spectator wander along dark paths to the obscurest places of the human soul.

The soprano Annelies Van Gramberen and singer-songwriter Sim Van Thienen manage to make this extremely difficult ‘style paradox’ sound surprisingly natural. Subtle arrangements with vocal and instrumental loops, electronica, and an arsenal of guitars fuse into layered sound scenery as a background to songs coming alive – whether deliciously familiar or unravelled, dissected, and moulded into new compositions.

About Late Night Lullabies
Laid-back acoustic gigs at the end of your festival day. What could be nicer than to enjoy ‘voices’ at their purest, following an intensive day at the festival, leaning back, relaxed … Singers show a different – more vulnerable – side of themselves due to the instrumental constraints. From Turkish classics to a taste of the Weimar Cabaret, 70s folk, or soulful Afro-beats. Go with the flow as the artists ring in the night, each in their own way …

Ticket including cocktail (with or without alcohol)!

“The fascinating folk and opera duo from Flanders brings together two kings of melancholic strings.” – Joost Heijthuijsen (dramaturg O.)
