Kites Collective

Monday 24 June, 7.00 pm to 9.30 pm

Kites Collective are a group of musicians who will be making a welcome return to Hughes Hall to perform their repertoire of folk, popular and original songs in their usual relaxed and entertaining manner. Hughes Hall Life Fellow Neil Mercer plays mandolin and guitar, and the band includes the star vocalists Heidi Carascon, Phil Riley and Ian Spratley, supported by Deborah Seabrook on ukelele and percussion and Tim Smith on bass.

Their recent concerts have sold out and had a great audience response. Their album, Lost Legions, which was launched in a concert at Leicester Guildhall, has had excellent reviews:

‘It felt like I’d met an old friend….Lost Legions has some great songs on it.’
Mike Harding, The Folk Programme

‘Throughout the album, which I might add, I enjoyed immensely, I kept hearing snippets of early sixties, influences of folk mixed with Americana and some purposeful acoustic moments spent in smoky clubs…’ Folkwords
