Demi Spriggs plays with both traditional and experimental musical modes shifting between the melancholy, the eerie and the uncanny with her tales for and of the weary.
Demi lives between London and Athens. She has two current projects. The first, night folkways works on vocal and sound looping with pedals, to create a kind of otherworldly shoegaze. Her second project tells new folk stories and feminist readings of classic folk tales.
Demi will be supported by:
Virginia Sutera, violin
Alberto Braida, piano
Virginia Sutera’s and Alberto Braida’s Duo takes its name from the binary star Anser, whose two stars orbit around their common centre of mass. Like the star, Virginia and Alberto see themselves revolving around a common musical idea, whilst both holding their individual identities and styles. Free improvisation and composition co-exist resulting in brilliantly intense and refined live performances.
Anser collaborates with the Stradivarius record label with which they released the homonymous album ANSER in 2020 and Walking on Water Drops in 2023.
