Folk Bands and Artists
Singer-songwriter Kristin McClement cites PJ Harvey, Gillian Welch, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen as key influences on her artistic formation, sharing themes of displacement, the feeling of being adrift in a complex world. Kristin will be playing material from her forthcoming second album, accompanied by Jools Owen on drums, vocals and harmonium. She has performed across the UK and Europe alongside notable acts such as Benjamin Clementine, Sam Lee, Kathryn Joseph and The Weather Station.
