EDD DONOVAN is a highly distinctive, indie folk singer and songwriter with a rare, original talent. He is “a natural storyteller and reflective lyricist”, (Maverick) with a collective of remarkable musicians around him called The Wandering Moles.
They are ‘a wonderful example of what modern folk music can be…gloriously different”. Folk All.
The sound they create is both familiar and fresh. A sound that is political, poignant and powerful. The Guardian’s article on the “singing social worker” has gained Edd’s songwriting international attention and his debut album garnered incredible reviews and national and international radio play.
This is the London album release show for the widely anticipated second album, Making Mountains.
It’s going to be a very special performance with a stripped back band providing the lush harmonies, textures and rhythms that define the sound of their second album and bring so much life and energy to Edd’s inspiring songs. Expect to be blown away.
