We are delighted to be hosting An evening of live music from

Mae Karthauser

Mae Karthauser is a British songwriter with a rich, acrobatic voice and a distinctive yet unplaceable
songwriting style. Raised in a musical family, her debut performance came in 1990, aged 5, when
she sang a solo as a policeman on the village hall stage.
With “T
he Midnight Fairground” and in collaboration with European circus companies, she's
played whilst harnessed of the edge of BBC Television studios, whilst dangling of an old fre engine
and whilst fying over the French alps in a paraglider, as well as multiple solo tours in France.
As the world plunged into lockdowns in 2020 new songs with a diferent feel began emerging; back
to her roots, to melody, simplicity and fragile honesty. With flautist Ronja Schlum
berger and cellist
Ben Roberts they have explored the edges of their instruments. Tense new songs dance childlike
through tender, magical and dark terrain and explore both experimental and simple organic tones.
Inspired by Joni Mitchell and Albin de la Simone.

Folk Radio

“honest, authentic and relatable...

a colourful and captivating atmosphere that beckons you to stop and take it all in”

RnR Magazine

“Brechtian intensity and dissonance and a hint of 1930s German torch song singer... fully

contemporary in its tone. Striking... unusual... intense...”

Country Music People

“beautiful imagery... impossible to categorise as a genre”

 

BBC Introducing

“rich sound, distinctive... artful music... not far of a Hans Zimmer”
