Folk – (The) Red Dear and Alphra
Alphra is a three piece folk pop band with quirky social lyrics and colourful, catchy melodies to take
you on a rollercoaster of emotion. This young wordsmith’s aim is to get you to feel, cry, dance and
celebrate the intricacies of life through music. She takes inspiration from Kate Tempest, Paolo Nutini
and Kimya Dawson.
(The) Red Dear: siblings Dylan and Izzy, 17 and 15, don’t have a TV. Instead they write and record
modern folk music. Acoustic instruments and vocal harmonies form the basis of their music, with a
little bit of electric guitar, and some other weird stuff; they play acoustic guitars with cello bows, use a
43 string autoharp and create atmospheric sounds. Formed in 2016, the duo’s first EP “Demo”
resulted in lots of local radio play and the song Paper Dust received national airplay on BBC Radio 1.
