Sennen Timcke + Fiona Fey
Multi instrumentalist, skillful songwriter and captivating lyricist Fiona Fey will perform songs from her latest album Naive Wisdom, from incisive Anti-Folk to ornate Chamber Pop. Supporting is Sennen Timcke whose honest and heartfelt songs are drawn from the British and American folk tradition.
Fiona Fey is a multi instrumentalist and skilful songwriter navigating many worlds, from incisive Anti-Folk to ornate Chamber Pop, she brings her witty charm and a critical gaze to everyday life. A talented lyricist, she walks a high-wire between the sublime, the political, and the ridiculous, exploring the worlds of homelessness, advertising, and presumptuous bees with equal candour.
Early experiences spent delving into her father’s dusty record collection and deeply involving herself in protest movements inspired new songs to spring forth. Drawing from the holy trinity of Bacharach, Motown, and Folk music, they tell stories of our complex modern world drenched in harmony and imaginative orchestration.

With a voice that is unique and compelling; and a deft finger-picking and rhythmic guitar style, his friendly and humorous stage presence allow him to play honest and heartfelt songs in an engaging and sincere way. From busking around the UK and Europe to playing in pubs, concert halls and UK music festivals, Sennen displays an intensity of songwriting which hauls him ahead of the pack.
