The Coach House Company – XMAS Shindig SOLD OUT
The Water Rats, Kings Cross
Sunday 17th December
The Coach House Company return with their annual Christmas shindig. Expect new takes on old carols, old takes on new(er) seasonal songs and bucketfuls of Christmas cheer. Sold out for the last 3 years in a row, Christmas just would not be Christmas without this fun-filled festive folky fun!
Since their formation at university in late 2010, five-piece folk band The Coach House Company are rapidly becoming known for their uplifting and wholesome sound through dynamic live performances in London and Cambridge. Inspired by the folk heritage of the British Isles, the band fuses traditional jigs, reels and folksongs with rich harmonies, instrumental virtuosity and compelling upbeat rhythms to create a unique folk expression. Original compositions and arrangements form the core of the band’s repertoire, which is also infused with influences from the classical and jazz domains.
The band is made up of Maya Amin-Smith (vocals/violin/mandolin), Patrick Milne (vocals/guitar), Héloïse Werner (vocals/cello), Marianne Schofield (vocals/double bass) and Colin Danskin (vocals/trumpet). In recent years, the band has performed at the National Portrait Gallery, Cecil Sharp House, Green Note in Camden, Ronnie Scott’s jazz club, London Folk Festival, Wilderness Festival, and has released two original EP discs:T he Coach House Company (2014) and Maiden Tales (2016). They recently shared double headers with Maz O’Connor at Cecil Sharp House and The Fair Rain at Bush Hall.
