Antifolk king plays Morecambe

Have your say

A New York singer-songwriter acclaimed as the founder of the Antifolk movement and now the star of his own BBC Radio 4 show plays in Morecambe this Saturday (June 14).

Lach has been called the “mastermind of Antifolk” by the New York Times and has been called “part of New York folklore” with “a counter-culture charm” by Suzanne Vega.

After running his influential Antihoot open mic nights in New York for many years (which provided early exposure for Beck and Regina Spektor among others), Lach moved to Edinburgh in 2011 and quickly became a fixture of the music scene there too.

He has performed acclaimed comedy shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has his own show on BBC Radio 4 called the Lach Chronicles, an engaging and funny collection of stories about his musical experiences.

Support comes from The Thyme Machine and the ULMS Brass Quintet from Lancaster.

The show at The Hothouse, Devonshire Road, Morecambe starts at 8pm. Tickets cost £7/£5 concessions from or 01524 831997.
