Fresh presents Dorcha ,Yama Warashi and Sashiko Stitch


FRESH = midweek gigs presenting fresh new music and fresh homemade food (usually but not always pizza!) for £5 (but you have to buy them in advance online to be guaranteed food - otherwise we can't guesstimate numbers or try your luck on the door!) 

"Watching Dorcha is like being propelled into another world; they are without a doubt one of the most exciting music projects to come out of Birmingham in recent years.” - Flatpack Film Festival.

‘Yama Warashi ;'Japanese folk, psych grooves and African beats, with madcap flights of fancy’
The Skinny

“Dorcha already know their own collective mind and are starting to channel a genre defying path through the increasingly fractured musical landscape. They deliver original and ambitious ideas with attitude and commitment, combining their considerable aptitude as players with an impressive musical sensibility. They clearly enjoy what they do. In Anna Palmer they have a tenacious front woman whose ability to move convincingly from sweet song to dark folk to visceral noise is captivating. Dorcha are a tight, grounded, self assured band delivering solid ideas that demand some attentive listening.” - Verity Sharp, BBC Radio 3. 

Yama Warashi, meaning small child like mountain spirit, are a Bristol based art rock ensemble fronted by Zun Zun Egui’s Yoshino Shigihara. Inspired by Japanese folk dance, free jazz, tribal African music and heavily saturated in psychedelia. Lyrically outlandish and charming, melodically addictive and mythical.

Sashiko Stich
Scottish singer-songwriter Charlotte Harrison performs lo-fi intuitive folk. Original songs are curated, traversed, and distilled to form Sashiko Stitch - decorative reinforced stitching of the soul.
