Babar Cafe welcomes C Joynes and Bell Lungs on October 3, the latest night presented at the venue by Weirdshire.

C Joynes, from Cambridge is a highly respected and prolific underground musician. A solo guitarist with an insatiable appetite for collaboration. He works in a direct lineage from Davy Graham, taking in Malian stylings and Texas Blues along the way. Equally at home on acoustic and electric guitar he weaves a path through folk songs of the British Isles, minimalist classical music, and improvisation.

This year’s album “The Borametz Tree” – a collaboration with the amazing Dead Rat Orchestra is receiving plaudits from Mojo, The Wire, Dusted, The Quietus, BBC Radio’s Late Junction, Tom Ravenscroft and Gideon Coe.

Bell Lungs, from Scotland is a solo performer and another multiple collaborator. She uses layered vocal harmonies, electric violin, omnichord, guitar, field recordings and instrumental loops to create a psychedelic, post-folk soundscape that draws on environmental disaster and the microcosmic aspects of relationships. She is an active member of Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra, and has shared bills with legends such as Richard Youngs, Richard Dawson, Diane Cluck and Marshall Allen.

Catch C Joynes and Bell Lungs at Babar Cafe on Thursday, October 3, with music from 7.45pm, plus vinyl selections from Jus Jay and Sproatly Smith. Free entry, donations encouraged.
