ROME (Europe – Trisol Music Group (Germany))

Luxembourgish singer-songwriter Jerome Reuter founded ROME (the name is derived from his first name) in 2005 and has since recorded and released groundbreaking albums in the underground Folk and Post-Industrial music world at a breathtaking pace. ROME’s musical and lyrical world is genuinely unique, blending traditional songwriting craftsmanship, unusual arrangements and fine poetry into one monstrous and intimate musical output that combines Chanson, Dark Ambient, Apocalyptic Folk, Pop, Acoustic Rock, Martial Industrial, Cold Wave – all rolled into one impressive Avantgarde package. Over a series of remarkable concept albums, the Luxembourgish artist has developed a unique ‚poetry of longing‘ which rings out from the dark melancholic mist of rootlessness and which gives expression to a comprehensive feeling of modern forlornness. The protagonists of his music are the unintentional ‚rebels‘ of Camus, contemporaries from the turbulent epochs of the 20th Century: the banished and the hunted; the despised and the misunderstood. Reuter’s songs are firmly in the tradition of chansonier heroes like JACQUES BREL and LÉO FERRÉ, but in a strange mélange with the darker brands of (Post-)Industrial music culture. ROME’s lyrics are inspired by world literature from Camus to Genet and Jerome’s frequent use of collage and sampling techniques serves to create a new kind of intertextuality between word and sound. The lyrical beauty of Reuter’s compositions, the depths of his poetry and the complex experimental arrangements make ROME an unusually challenging musical experience.

KING DUDE (Seattle, US – Not Just Religious Music / Ván)

You may know TJ Cowgill from his clothing line Actual Pain or his previous projects (from black metal Book of Black Earth to hardcore act Teen Cthulhu) but King Dude sounds like nothing he’s done before. A dark pagan-fueled folk wrapped tight with outsider Americana, imagine the music of Woody Guthrie or Johnny Cash but played by a fan of Psychic TV. After the amazing, Love and Burning Daylight on Dais and Van Records, the king will release a brand new album in early 2014, meanwhile he’s on tour in Europe this fall with a self released EP on his brand new label and a split with Urfaust.

SANGRE DE MUERDAGO (Woods of Galicia – DIY)

SANGRE DE MUERDAGO puts together the four winds to create a world of fairy-like reality. Calling up our oldest memories and melodies and giving the quieter and more melancholic Galician Folk from the late 70s and early 80s a new dimension, where nature, folk tales, old wisdom, mysteries and love get together to build up a future far from technological civilization. Finger picked guitars, cello, violin/viola, baroque flute and ocassional percussion and hurdy-gurdy, dance together on a beauty invocation, on a feast of passion and melodies that will awake our sleeping „myself“, our true soul.
With its music, SANGRE DE MUERDAGO brings us to a world of ancient musical enchantment.

Four DIY punks from Germany and the Netherlands who play Folk songs.

http://knifefightfolk.wordpress.com/ | https://twitter.com/knifefightfolk | https://www.facebook.com/knifefightfolk?ref=ts&fref=ts

We play our own version of traditional music, influenced by punk rock energy, good times and poetry. Knifefight! is about folk songs, friendship and good times. Our music is influenced by old-time songs, murder ballads, story-telling and upbeat punk tunes. We play traditional songs and our own songs. The lyrics cover topics such as anger, forgiveness, heartbreak, the apocalypse and death. We play and have played in the streets, in living rooms, on stages, in theatres, cinemas and anywhere you want us to play. Get in touch!

Knifefight! is into love, compassion, freedom and the idea of a liberated society. We strongly oppose fascism, sexism, racism, homophobia and all other systems of oppression. We furthermore reject the concept of religion, as it leads to narrow-mindedness instead of making people free.

Richmond Fontaine (us/Decor)

Richmond Fontaine aus Portland sind so etwas wie der Alternative-Country-Geheimtipp der letzten Jahre. Ihr Instrumentarium wendet sich Richtung Americana, Pedal Steel und Bläser sind dabei und über allem thront die ausstrahlungskräftige Stimme von Willy Vlautin, das dürfte nicht nur Calexico-und Giant Sand Fans gefallen.

UT & Schubladenkonsortium laden ein:


Kapelsky (d)

Infiziert vom Ostvirus jagen drei Kulturvagabunden dem Mythos der überschwenglichen Melancholie nach. Mit Klezmer und Polka versuchen sie, die slawische Seele bis in den Orient zu ergründen. Eine gute Ladung Swing steht den Saitenvirtuosen dabei Pate, irgendwo dahinten, wo der Pfeffer wächst…
instrumentale, osteuropäische, jiddische Folktraditionen versetzt mit Mannoush und dem Czupe’ eines Django Reinhadt bringt die Band in Stimmungslagen zwischen Melancholie und Manie

Digger Barnes & Pencil Quincy (d/Sabotage)

Die Diamond Road Show ist aus der langjährigen Zusammenarbeit des Musikers Digger Barnes mit dem Videokünstler Pencil Quincy entstanden. Die Diamond Road Show ist Roadmovie und Konzert zugleich. Barnes und Quincy nehmen den Zuschauer mit auf eine Reise quer durch eine düstere Comic-Welt, die von Pencil Quincy mit seiner Magic Machine auf die Bühne projiziert wird. Die Magic Machine ist eine moderne Interpretation der Laterna Magica, eines Projektionsgerätes, welches bereits im 19. Jahrhundert auf Jahrmärkten und in Varietétheatern genutzt wurde, um das Publikum mit optischen Tricks zu verblüffen.
Vor der Leinwand agiert Digger Barnes als One-Man-Band mit Gitarre, Banjo und Schlagzeug. Tief verwurzelt in der Tradition des Storytellers aus Folk, Blues und Country vertont er in seinen Songs die Abenteuer einer rastlosen Fahrt entlang des Highways.
Ein düster hinreißender Cocktail aus Trailerparkverzweiflung,
Countryblues, Americana und Folk mit den adäquaten Bildern!

Marina Frenk (d)

Die Schauspielerin, an Centraltheater und Skala in Stuecken wie Schlafes Bruder, Die Räuber oder Das Abhandenkommen der Staaten zu sehen, gibt, begleitet von Gregor Hengesbach, brasiliansch, portugiesisch und russische Zigeunerlieder.
