Presents

The Ailsa Tully Band

18th November 2016

with guest support from Lilo's Wall

and Bob Munton

Hailing from rural Wales Ailsa grew up with a background in classical music and a keen interest in traditional folk. With a move to South East London to study popular music, Ailsa has worked to create a unique cello playing style that involves complex finger picking and rhythmic strumming, moving away from conventional cello playing styles and techniques. Exploring a diverse range of influences, such as jazz, classical music, medieval music and folk, she has a created a personal sound world that draws upon these different styles. The band consists of flute, clarinet, piano, electric guitar, auto harp, drum/ percussion, five part harmonies, and folk inflected melody lines. Ailsa has been featured on BBC radio Wales many times, toured Italy, performed at festivals and venues throughout the country, including Greenman and Ronnie Scotts, and completed a degree in popular music, don’t miss Ailsaand her magnificent band!
‘I can’t tell you how excited I got when I heard this… inexplicable transcendental excellence’

Bio according to Amelia Wrigley, head girl - Lilo's Wall are a rhyming couplet from the Shire of Hamp (a shire is a bit like a hood,
but less ghetto). With prize-worthy middle names and strumming technique; they harmonise, melodise, revolutionise...and pretty much
every other -ise you can think of. They also have eyes, what more could you wish for?
