Stick in the Wheel at the Citadel

Stick in the WheelStick in the Wheel are a raw and uncompromising London folk band, headed by Ian Carter, Nicola Kearey and Fran Webster.  Brought up in the thriving culture of working class East London, the band’s intent, as they say "is to perform folk music, not as bland retroism, or empty nostalgia, but as a voice linking now to then, and as a way to get people to connect with their own past."

They’ve recently been nominated for Best Emerging Act and Best Traditional Track at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2015. Their Album "From Here" has just been named Album of the Month by Mojo and Steven Collins from Stone Tape Recordings declared them to be "the best thing to happen to English folk music for decades."  Through their live sessions for BBC6Music, XFm, Folk Radio UK, plus festival appearances and sold out gigs, they are cementing their reputation as a unique force and driving live band. More importantly the band's debut album got the thumbs up from this site.

Stick in the Wheel perform for the first time in the North West at the Citadel in St Helens on Thursday 15th October.  Further details and tickets priced at £10 from the venue link below.
