A folk act who toured with Mumford and Sons will play live at a West End music venue on January 25.

Moulettes will bring their unique folk-rock sound to The Hothouse on Devonshire Road, the home of the town’s community music group More Music.

Their mix of violin, cello, bassoon, double bass and vocals creates an energetic, fun sound incorporating indie, jazz, blues and classical.

They will be supported by the Baines Ukelele Orchestra led by More Music’s Ben Farmer and Lancaster musician Stephen Hudson and The Fiat Pandas.

Cult singer/guitarist Alasdair Roberts and his trio will also come to The Hothouse on Saturday, March 16.

He will be supported by Lancaster singer-songwriter Dan Haywood, debuting his follow-up music project to his highly praised New Hawks album.

Other events being held at More Music in Devonshire Road this spring include Manchester band The Tapestry, beatboxers Reeps One and Hobbit and Flaunt It, a new series of events profiling disabled musicians and entertainers including actress and comedienne Francesca Martinez, guitarist Tom Doughty and comic host Liz Bentley.

Jali Nyonkoling Kuyateh will perform world music on March 9 with support from Orchestre DC Dansette and Kitchen Collective. This event will raise awareness for Lancaster-based charity Stepping Stones Nigeria which highlights the abuse of children accused of witchcraft in the Niger Delta.

Gig tickets are priced at £8 (concessions available). For more information call 01524 831997.
