For the 3rd year in a row, De Centrale organizes a great and unforgettable contemporary folk and song night. Again with two marvellous musical acts. This year the Dutch-American trio 'The Lasses & Kathryn Claire' and the 8-piece Belgian folk and roots pop band 'GRAVEL UNIT' share the stage. The evening will again be 'hosted' and presented by the Ghent-Irish singer-songwriter 'Daithi Rua' ....
Since their debut during an Irish session in Amsterdam, The Lasses has seen a lot of good things, and it is said to be well earned. Sophie Janna and Margot Merah sing together as if they were sisters. In addition, the women have a great repertoire of songs. Stories about love, death and other misery are brought without pretension, full of humor and musicality. The Irish and American folk traditions have clearly put their stamp on the song choice and on the own work of The Lasses. Together with their American girlfriend Kathryn Claire, this female 'Crosby, Stills & Nash' brings great singing, intimate songs and lots of fun.
What do you get when you have a bunch of purebred folk musicians making music together for years? Cleverly elaborate roots pop with feet in the folk, a belly full of soul and the ears focused on the world. Once started as a folk band pur sang under the name Paddy Murphy's Wife, somewhere on the way between Roeselare and Kachtem on the way back from the annoying school desks. Today Gravel Unit is a mature band, not only the age of the musicians, but also the quality of the music slowly rose.
With a well-thought mix of traditional and self-written songs, good songs (whether they come from our pen or from those of better writers) and thoughtful arrangements, Gravel Unit guarantees an great evening.
