Please do come along and join us - with all the usual Covid caveats of course. All social distancing rules for The Backroom will be adhered to and be assured that if we have to move or cancel the event, tickets will be refundable or transferable to a rescheduled date with Fay.

Watch this space!
"Returning back to the live stage after a few years out, Fay teams up once again with Sam Sweeney and Rob Harbron to tour her new album, Wrackline.
Exploring ideas of the space between, Wrackline looks to ghosts, fairies, spirits and talking animals to understand what it is about the unknown that entrances us. Working with traditional materials and ideas, Fay explores the feelings they evoke and how they relate to her experience in the contemporary world. Universal ideas of death, love, motherhood echo through time and space. Playing with these difficult ideas through the eyes of an unobtainable other, whether that be the spirit of a dearly departed, a fairy from another realm, or the thoughts animals have, gives us space to work through very real social problems.
Shifting between lighthearted stories about drunks sitting with pigs, to darker questions about infanticide, Fay breaths life and meaning into old stories presenting them with a fresh twist and consummate musicianship from Sweeney and Harbron including fiddle, concertina, guitar and banjo.
Expect to be enveloped in music, woven through magical stories and teased into thinking about your relationship with the world around you."
