French violinist Claire Northey brings an air of the North African coast to the UK. Playing a fusion of European, African and East European melodies with looped beats on violin, she has recently been joined by trumpet player Nick Oakley. Now Bristol-based she has just finished working on a new single Braincrash.

GigSoup says of a recent gig, “A folk artist with a twist, Claire used looping pedals to create an authentic sound of an entire orchestra, as the reverb of her electric violin echoed around the growing room. Honest and vibrant, Claire possessed the crowd with elaborate structures that oscillated into the higher ends of pitch, becoming almost loud nothings of note.”
