The indie-folk musician performs unheard new material, along with songs from across her back catalogue.

Aldous Harding is a rare artist who defies conventions and categorisation, creating lush, off-kilter indie pop. Shapeshifting vocals transform with every track, tilting and changing mood and atmosphere, while delicate guitars and soft percussion add a shimmering intensity. Live, she is an intense performer, a mesmerising and theatrical presence, captivating her audience.
Known and loved by fans as the set-closer at her most recent live shows, Harding’s new single ‘Old Peel’ is out now.

Support comes from Welsh singer-songwriters H Hawkline (Fri 28 Apr) and Alice Low (Sat 29 Apr).
