Velvet and Stone at YHA Treyarnon Bay
Velvet & Stone’s brand of indie-folk combines haunting soundscapes with catchy pop hooks and great songs – giving an original and beautiful take on a traditional genre. Crafting their live set with performances at Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections and Somersault, they take their audiences on a journey from stunning soundscapes to foot-stomping folk-rock.
Led by the ethereal combination of Lara Snowdon’s haunting vocals, and Kathryn Tremlett’s violin, Velvet & Stone’s music draws upon personal stories, melancholy tales and rugged landscapes, creating a serene and haunting sound that is difficult to forget. Their music has flavours of singer-songwriter influences such as Ben Howard and Beth Orton, and a raw appeal from influences such as Seth Lakeman, The Cranberries and The Levellers. The band released their new single ‘Raise Your Ghosts‘ in August, followed by the The Embers EP in October 2017. Their music has gained plaudits from across the music press, airtime on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio Wales and is championed by their local BBC Introducing team!
