THE COB BARN PRESENTS...
Sunday 27th August
Sadly this gig has been cancelled
We are delighted to be hosting An evening of live music from
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 “The 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 Schlumberger 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.
“honest, authentic and relatable...
a colourful and captivating atmosphere that beckons you to stop and take it all in”
“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”
“rich sound, distinctive... artful music... not far of a Hans Zimmer”
