Friday Lunch: Nina Harries

Friday 10 May 2019 | 1pm | Royal Festival Hall , Central Bar, Level 2

Hear the unexpected from the folk-punk double bassist and vocalist who studied at the Royal College of Music before breaking out into the UK festival scene.

Exploring the aural relationship between the double bass and the female voice, Nina Harries uses modern life, ancient prose and heavy realism to inspire her lyrics which are at times mesmeric in their repetitive quality.

Harries’ powerful, yet ethereal, music is inspired by western and Indian classical music, EDM and folk. She has been touring internationally with world-renowned dancer Akram Khan as part of his final solo production Xenos.

Born into a family of musicians, Harries plays an instrument you will doubtless recognise, but have seldom seen in the spotlight. Her debut album is due to be released in September 2019, with support from the PRS Women Make Music scheme.
