Feral Beryl + Bonne Nouvelle


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

A night on the town with some of Frome's finest, with the all female trio, Feral Beryl and Bonne Nouvelle. Feral turn in a set mostly of original material which comes from an old time / blues / folk tradition and were voted by Mark Boden of Bellowhead as the "best unsigned act " at The Trowbridge Folk Festival. The band work hard at being innovative. Feral Beryl are the beating of the excitingly unique and musically feral hearts of Sue Clare, Gemma White and Lucy May.
Bonne Nouvelle are Coralie Hyde (voice) and John Ruddock (guitar) - an acoustic duo based in Frome. From a shared classical background, they have travelled via flamenco (John) and cabaret (Coralie) to a dark but sensuous sound inspired by French band - Nouvelle Vague. They take songs, familiar and unfamiliar, mainly from the early 80s new wave pop era, and reimagine them, casting a new light on the grimy stories and (im)moral tales they tell.
