LauFest Sunday Headliner Announced
Championing strong women is what it’s all about here at LauFest. The resilience, determination and sheer strength of our festival’s namesake has inspired us to focus on celebrating women in music for this year’s festival and we have worked hard to secure a line up which is dominated by incredible women musicians and performers. Having Wildwood Kin as our Sunday night line up is the icing on the cake, and we’re completely honoured that they’ve agreed to headline for us on the Sunday!!
Wildwood Kin are a talented indie alt folk harmony trio from Exeter who have been making waves in the music industry since being awarded “Bob Harris Emerging Artist of the Year 2017”, supporting Ward Thomas on their national tour, and being nominated for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. Sisters Emillie and Beth Key and their cousin Meghann Loney create hypnotic harmonies with early folk influences including Fleetwood Mac, Crosby Stills and Nash, James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel.They were also part of The Old Grey Whistle Test’s One Night Only live show on BBC Four to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the show’s last broadcast and received standout reviews for their spellbinding harmonies and inventive reinvention of classic indie folk.
The three woman-strong lineup let their perfect voices weave magical spells across the audience whilst Meg plays her stand up drum kit to give the sound a unique edge. The songs are full of perfect melody with every song sounding like a huge hit, yet each retains a fragile beauty of its own. We are especially looking forward to hearing ‘Warrior Daughter’ played live which showcases their forceful harmony vocals and epitomises strong incredible women, which is what LauFest is all about.
This trio of supremely talented women are on the verge of stardom and we’re so honoured to have nabbed Wildwood Kin before they are too big and too busy to play homegrown festivals anymore! Be sure to get your tickets for the weekend of 2-4th August before they sell out…
