Matt Stalker & Fables 'Knots' album launch plus support Mat Hunsley

Gateshead Old Town Hall

Like Bon Iver trying his hand at baroque folk, with full-bodied cello adding an air of intimacy‘ – The Crack

A specially filmed message and performance about the show? OK then!

With a debut album behind them described as “a masterpiece of care and craftsmanship” (NARC), and a reputation for breathtaking intimate live shows, Matt Stalker & Fables return with their long-awaited second LP, ‘Knots’.

MS&F don’t fit the mold of the modern folk band: Matt was once a prison psychologist, and the music Fables make with their dizzying array of instruments was once dubbed ‘chamber folk’. They have a song lamenting the misuse of punctuation, and their new record – inspired by the work of late psychiatrist R.D. Laing – was recorded in a Victorian primary school in Britain’s highest village.

There is something different about this band, and the unveiling of the darker, bolder ‘Knots’ in the splendour of GOTH is an event not to be missed.

With support from Newcastle singer songwriter Mat Hunsley.
