Dusk Musician: ICHI

ICHI is a Bristol based experimental musician who takes the notion of one-man-band to new limits combining handmade instrument inventions with steel-drum, ping-pong balls & tape-loops. He comes with the following recommendations:

‘ICHI fits nicely in the time-honored tradition of zany Japanese music from artists as diverse and eclectic as Cornelius, Lullatone and Kahimi Karie. He is a welcome addition to the world of experimental music with a combination of childlike wonder, a wacky sense of humour and seemingly boundless creativity. Comparisons aside, ICHI is very much his own man, a highly original artist who creates his own strange and wonderful world of sound and fun. Warmly recommended.’ (Folkradio.co.uk)

‘Hilarious & bonkers & brilliant’ LAUREN LAVERNE

Dusk Poet: Paul Deaton

copyright Jon Sen

Paul Deaton was runner-up in the 2010 Arvon International Poetry Prize judged by Carol Ann Duffy and winner of the SaveAs Writer’s Prize 2016. Regularly published in The Spectator, and magazines, e.g. PN Review, The London Magazine, The Dark Horse, and is included in York Notes GCSE study guides. His debut collection, A Watchful Astronomy (Seren) published October 2017, is a Poetry Book Society winter recommended read.

 

Paul’s poem for Dusk, Brunel’s Bridge at Dusk, will be read at Bristol, but as it is already published will not appear in the anthology.

Dusk Songster: Anna Kissell

Anna Kissell is a singer songwriter whose music marries a tender openness with a fierce soul. Hushed and dark, her folk-lullabies unfold slowly with melodies that linger long after the song’s end. Anna lives in Bristol and is joined by a talented cast of musicians whose voices and instrumentation make up ‘The Unsung Chorus’. In February 2016, they released ‘Wake The Ancient’ EP and are preparing to record a debut LP. Anna’s voice rides naturally over hypnotic guitar picking, drawing listeners into otherworldly dreamscapes, inviting them to lie down, stretch out and forget time.

Anna is singing Oh, the Dark! at Bristol.
