The resurrection of the extraordinary Men Diamler is one of the music world’s unsung good news stories of 2016. A Leigh Folk Festival favourite, this is one not to be missed.
“Men Diamler is a young man with a cult reputation in the South West who will not be tamed by the powers that be, reconfiguring a English/Welsh soul music through woozy operatics and wild and weird song/stories. Sweet and darkness have never sounded so close or so intense in such performer. Despite his tender age he is a channel for old thyme ways – footstompin’ blues, two string serenades, backwoods drinking hollers, horse play and pagan folk all get exorcised. Psychosis never sounded this good and people clap” Qujunktions
