Folk Chronicles ft; Violet French, Luke Towart & Frankie Daly

September 4, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm NZST


Welcome back to the,
Featuring Artists, Violet French, Luke Towart & Frankie Daly.

Vesuvio’s upstairs “Study” is one of the city’s best kept secrets when it comes to music venues. The ‘Folk Chronicles’ joins a variety of different music styles by stripping back the songs and creating an unplugged, intimate, song sharing session. Christchurch is full of multiple vibrant, music scenes. These shows will bring these artists together so that you’ll never know exactly what you’ll get, all the while keeping a consistent vibe with an acoustic, mellow mood in the study.

Originally from Dunedin, and now currently based in Christchurch, NZ. Violet French takes observation, experiences, thoughts and feelings and turns them into frank, matter-of-fact songs. With influences from here, there and everywhere; Violets’ sound could be classified as Folk, Country, or Singer-Songwriter (if you had to)… You never know who she may share the bill with, or what might occur during a set.

Luke Towart is a Christchurch-based musician who was born and raised in Lancashire, England. He is a member of the Christchurch bands Wurld Series and Kool Aid. Luke’s musical influences range from 80’s and 90’s US indie rock to British psych-folk.

Frankie Daly has always been driven to craft songs that show raw, emotion, tapping into the deeper layers of her personality. She uses the piano as her main accomplice to help convey feelings that people might relate to. With a jazz background, she has a large palate of harmonic textures to choose from, which shape her improvisation within songs. Lately however, she has been working on more simple harmony, to let flowing melodies and stories take the lead.
She is a valued member of the Christchurch scene and takes inspiration from many circles, stylistically and lyrically. Some of her most recent content reveals a comedic streak that tackles issues surrounding pop culture and the influx of social media in our lives.

Music starts at 7.30.
