On Friday February 24, Cornish pop sensation Rosie Vanier will be playing at the Eden Café, along with folk group Ellen and the Escapades.

Rosie Vanier found fame fronting the pop band Rosie and the Goldbug, in which she toured with her childhood hero Cindy Lauper and provided the soundtrack for a makeup advert.
 
Now an established solo artist, Rosie is touring with her new EP Neon Nightmare. Renowned for her gamin features and her sugary-pop-meets-Kate-Bush vocals, Rosie is wowing crowds on her 35-date tour around the UK.

Ellen and the Escapades are a folk quintet based in Leeds. In 2010 they won Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition and have played BBC Introducing stages at both Reading and Leeds festivals.

They have attracted the attention of BBC presenters Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq, having supported Paolo Nutini and First Aid Kit among others. The band blends elements of folk, pop and rock to create beautiful and poignant songs, which has gained them fans at festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival and Green Man.

Their single When the Tide Creeps In reached number one in both the Amazon Folk and Rock charts in the autumn, and their highly anticipated album All The Crooked Scenes is being released on April 16.

Dan Ball, Eden Café Manager, said: “We’re really pleased to have Rosie back at the café again-she has lots of Cornish fans who are looking forward to another stunning show. Ellen and the Escapades will complete what is shaping up to be an unmissable night.”

The gig takes place from 8pm until midnight. Tickets cost £5, or £4 for concessions and tickets bought from the café beforehand.

A selection of locally sourced beverages will be on offer throughout the night. Bread, dips and a choice of seasonal hot food will be available until 9:30pm.
