BONFIRE MADIGAN SHIVE
American composer, performing artist, community organizer and international touring musician based in San Francisco, Madigan is a cellist, singer and guitarist, formerly of the band Tattle Tale and currently fronting her own ensemble.
Starting on cello at the age of nine, Bonfire Madigan Shive began her composing career at fifteen in the Pacific Northwest Riot Grrrl scene releasing music with seminal independent record labels K and Kill Rock Stars. Shive has gone on to establish herself as a singular and trailblazing performer, blending folk, art, punk, classical and avant-baroque styles.
Madigan will perform two exclusive dates in the UK, on Friday 4 November at Late at Tate Britain (as part of Apocalyptic Cabaret) and a different set on the Ship of Fools on 6 November.
Bonfire Madigan play baroque-folk punk grounded on frontwoman Madigan Shive’s soaring lullaby vocals and virtuoso cello skills. Shive, a master of tone and mood, crafts songs with raw, emotional melodies and powerful, unexpected dynamics. — New York Press
The howls of a wounded cello and the voice of a tormented angel suffuse the blood-soaked tragedy on the American Conservatory Theater’s stage. Above all – literally, seated high amid the massive organ pipes of Walt Spangler’s industrial-baroque cathedral set – composer, cellist and vocalist Bonfire Madigan Shive is an electrifying one-woman heavenly choir. — San Francisco Chronicle
Brighton-based composer/musician whose self-produced records have earned high acclaim from such cult luminaries as Julian Cope, David Tibet, Xiu Xiu and Franko B.
Hudson’s often dramatic intonations are weaved around layers of organ, piano and guitar.
For this occasion he is going to present tracks from his forthcoming album ‘A Day Without Comfort’.
London based musician Mikey Kirkpatrick is an act with a broad spectrum of inspirations: “Bird” because of the flutes. “Radio” because of the technology he uses.
“Herefordshire’s Mikey Kirkpatrick loops flutes, bones, a red kick drum suitcase and his own very un-ethereal vocals to create an intensely curious mash-up between electronic music and traditional folk tales.” – Critics Choice – Timeout
*Ship of Fools is a bi-monthly club on a small boat on the Thames. It promotes and supports the best of contemporary folk, electronica, neo-classical and avant-garde presenting a selection of both established and up and coming acts.*
