We're so pleased to be welcoming the Teacups to Dorking in October! The members of this acapella foursome are Rosie Calvert, Alex Cumming, Kate Locksley and Will Finn. They've been creating a storm across the UK festival circuit in the past few years, having initially met and started singing together at Newcastle University.
The Guardian has this to say about the Teacups:
'Unaccompanied harmony singing has always played a key role in the folk tradition, and the style is quite rightly back, with a vengeance...the Teacups show how old songs can be transformed by four voices and imaginative new arrangements. They have established a distinctive, fresh and impressively varied style...All (their songs are) treated with subtle and exquisite harmony vocals.' ****The Guardian
As we speak they are busy working on a new album due out later in 2019! Their debut album, 'One For The Pot' (2013) explores traditional and contemporary songs from all over the British Isles and beyond with a sensitive and lyrical approach to arrangement. Their second album, 'Of Labour & Love' (2015) contains new and original compositions as well as murder ballads, exotic shanties and traditional songs of love and loss. More about the group available at www.theteacups.co.uk.
