Dustbowl Records Presents:


The Miserable Rich's name was inspired by an experience they had playing at the wedding of two ultra-rich aristocrats in Rome. The folk-pop string quintet was formed intending to produce 'unusual acoustic modern music'. Their music has been revered by Bearded Magazine as 'pop music that could soundtrack a nursery rhyme created by Tim Burton', and seduced the well-tuned ears of NME, Drowned in Sound and Q.


Unlike The Miserable Rich, the name Adelaide's Cape has no story behind it. This hasn't stopped folk troubadour Sam Taylor from embarking on tours with Alessi's Ark and First Aid Kit already this year, as well as his own month-long headline tour of the UK and Ireland. Tipped by everyone from the BBC to For Folk's Sake and already for a range of this year's festivals, including Secret Garden Party, Adelaide's Cape is one of the UK's most exciting emerging artists.


The wonderful Jay Leighton completes the lineup of this wonderfully folky evening. After an extensive European tour with Lou Rhodes, the Cambridge local plays The Haymakers just ahead of a slot at Secret Garden Party in July.
