The 26th of November marks the date that Hydra books first opened its doors. It is also the date that the Hydra will be visited by arguably some of the best that the South West has to offer in terms of local music and upcoming talent, in the form of Katie Meade, Triinu Tamsulu, and Wolfhound. Starting from 7pm
Katie Meade is a solo acoustic musician, performing sublime and haunting covers of well know songs, as well as thoughtful and expressive originals.
Triinu Tammsalu was born in the Soviet Union, in the year of the Snake and in the month of Libra. After a couple of years, there were some big changes in the world, and the country where she was born, was named Estonia. Music was all around during that time and Estonians themselves call it the period of “the singing revolution”.
During the summer of 2011, Triinu was discovering the music scene in England for the first time, starting with Gloucester, Cheltenham and Bristol. After having finished her music studies in Paris, she returned to the UK in 2012. Always up for new challenges and eager to learn and hone her skills, she is confident to be seen and heard.
Comprised of sisters Sally & Natalie Joiner Wolfhound are from North Somerset in the South West of England. They write and play their own songs, based loosely around lead electric, twelve-string acoustic and electric/acoustic bass guitars. Despite their young ages they are very ambitious and professional in their approach to their music and performances. They self released their first EP Empty Lighthouse at the end of 2011 and are currently working on new songs and recording a new EP. Sally is 17 years old and currently studying for a Music Practice Diploma at Weston College. In Wolfhound she sings, plays electric lead and acoustic guitars and provides percussion using a Logarhythm stompbox. Her musical influences include The White Stripes, Kings Of Leon, Mumford and Sons and Radiohead. Natalie is 15 years old and currently studying for her GCSEs at school. In Wolfhound she sings, plays twelve-string & six-string acoustic guitars, electric and acoustic bass guitars and electric guitar. Her influences include Muse, Paolo Nutini, Lissie, The Killers, Suzanne Vega and Taylor Swift.
This event will be hosted by our very own “musician” and general Ship Waif, Micheal McNeil. There will also be Open Mic after the booked acts, so why not bring your own guitar, or ukulele? or rip the church organ out of Bristol Cathedral and drag it down Old Market?
