Fanø Free Folk Festival and ALICE are ready with another great evening in our Free Folk Mondays club. We’re happy to welcome British psych-folk artist Alex Monk and Copenhagen based weird folk collective Henry the Rabbit.
Alex Monk combines songwriting and fingerpicked guitar with a curiosity to experiment with sampling, found sound, drone and electronics. His early CDRs (2007/2008) were dominated by a largely instrumental and ambient style, but from his highly acclaimed double vinyl “The Safety Machine” (2011) he moved more into a song based and guitar influenced universe where the raw and improvised encountered the dreamy, psychedelic and ghostly. In 2018 he self-released a new solo album ‘Come to your senses old devil’, along with two collaborative albums with Sand Snowman (Alex meets Sand) and slatepipe banjo draggers (Komoran Woonekker). Alex Monk played a great concert at Fanø Free Folk Festival back in 2012, and he has since performed in Denmark on several occasions. This will be the first time at ALICE, and we’re very much looking forward.
Mixing instrumental soundscapes with the occasional choral melodies and vocals, Henry the Rabbit’s Psychedelic Ukulele Skiffle is the soundtrack to your walk in the woods where you stumble across some perky nippled fungi that talks to you, that wants to be inside you, that wants to warm and soothe your body and mind in gentle waves of colourful caresses. Based in Copenhagen, Henry the Rabbit has performed in various constellations over the years, but always with Craig Martin Wood (also known from Halasan Bazar) as key member. No matter in which constellation they play, the music is always like a trip down the rabbit hole, so it should be very fitting for a Free Folk Monday at ALICE!
Free Folk Monday is a folk club presented by ALICE and Fanø Free Folk Festival. On selected Mondays you can experience fresh, alternative takes on folk music from local artists as well as international acts. The entrance is cheap and the atmosphere is warm and intimate.
