On Friday, April 20, the inviting sounds of folk band Laish will fill the air at the Eden Café, St Austell, as part of their full UK spring tour.

The Brighton-based five-piece are building a strong reputation in the musical world, with founder, guitarist and songwriter Danny Green’s inspiring lyrics interplaying with his soulful voice. 

Emma Gatrill and Martha Rose accompany with pleasing harmonies as well as the clarinet, accordion and violin. Bass guitarist Patrick Lawrence and drummer Dan Harding complete the line-up. 

Laish’s influences include artists such as Grizzly Bear and Bill Callahan, helping to form a distinctively unique folk sound.

The gig will include tracks from their second album, Obituaries, which was released on April 2.

Ian Williams, Operations Director at Eden, said: “We are delighted to welcome Laish to play at the Eden Café. They bring so much depth and passion to folk music, I have no doubt they will give us a heartwarming and unforgettable performance.”

The gig takes place from 8pm until midnight. Tickets cost £4, or £3 for concessions and can be 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.
