Fresh: Detroit Tourist Board + Yakka Doon

Alternative folk, and lyrical storytelling

Detroit Tourist Board’s Patrick Lawrence warm melodies and stories are like listening to a hazy nostalgic, warm summers afternoon from a time gone by. Echoing with personal stories and references to his past, these songs are tributes to his friends and family and are not without a ‘coming of age’ narrative. Endearing and very human.

Yakka Doon is the solo project of guitarist and songwriter Claire Welford. Inspired by the traditional and not-so-traditional folk songs, and the howling winds, trickling streams and hardy people of the North East. Joined by Phil Tyler on banjo and fiddle
