Caught by the River

Stone Club at Moseley Folk & Arts Festival

13th August 2023

Birmingham’s Moseley Folk and Arts Festival, which runs from 1st – 3rd September 2023, has now announced its full lineup, including for the woods area — curated by and named after our friends at Stone Club.

As well as an appearance from Adam Higton, aka Cosmic Neighbourhood, who will discuss his recent album Gatherings and his wider creative practice, highlights across the weekend include a screening of Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller’s ground-breaking documentary, Everybody In The Place: An Incomplete History Of Britain 1984- 1992, which maps the development of rave and acid house culture (Friday 1 September), and an appearance from Echo and The Bunnymen’s Will Sergeant (Saturday 2 September), who will be recounting the Bunnymen’s whirlwind rise to stardom to coincide with the publication of his new memoir, Echoes.

Sunday (3 September) sees a must-see display from Boss Morris, the female morris dancing team who joined Wet Leg for an incendiary appearance at the BRIT Awards 2023 . Bringing ancient folk dance to new audiences and reshaping predefined customs, Boss Morris aim to reclaim the narrative around our culture and past, and how we feel about ‘England’ and ‘Englishness’.

Famed DJ/producer and writer Justin Robertson also joins the Sunday line-up to discuss his transdimensional debut novel, The Tangle, and forthcoming multi-media project with Stone Club, while Gwenno follows her main stage appearance on Friday with a screening of Tresor – the dream-like film she has written, directed and produced which reflects her growing interest in the intersection of music and visual elements.

Tickets are available here — and running very low!
