Concert: Alison Cotton – Tuesday 9 July 2024




Since her first solo work manifested in 2018, Alison Cotton has quietly become one of the UK’s most extraordinarily evocative aural explorers, building eerily arcane tapestries of supernatural beauty from her multi-layered viola, incantatory vocals and harmonium.

She has a concept album out on Rocket Recordings named 'Engelchen'. A soundscape about two Sunderland sisters who helped many Jewish families escape Nazi persecution.

"An eerie, lost folk horror soundtrack glinting in the sunshine." - The Guardian

"Folorn, hypnotic drone hymns for an ancient haunted England." - Mojo
