"New Music Inspired From Old"
Hickory Signals are a folk duo from Brighton; multi-instrumentalists Laura Ward and Adam Ronchetti combine strong vocal melodies with guitar, shruti, flute, glockenspiel and a variety of percussion, layering sounds carefully and minimally to atmospheric effect. Their
music has been described as haunting, cinematic, un-rushed and detailed. Laura and Adamare joined regularly in the studio and on the stage by skilled violinist, Tom Pryor, whose sensitivity and musicality make him an utter joy to listen to. Together they create an unique live sound and Hickory Signals are enjoying a busy performance schedule and a growing following. They make new music inspired by old music, and play a balanced mix of traditional songs that they’ve re-arranged and original songs that they’ve written.
Inspiration comes not only from old songs and lyrics but also poetry and stories.
Previous live show highlights include headlining ‘Folk Rising’ at Cecil Sharp House in 2015, support slots for the likes of Buddy Whittington, Blazin’ Fiddles, Stick in the Wheel, Jinnwoo and Hattie Briggs, Club Tent stage slots at Cambridge Folk Festivals 2014, 2015 and 2016 plus a number of local festival slots.
Hickory Signals released their second EP, Noise of the Waters at the same venue in November 2016 to an enraptured audience.
