Alula Down are playing this Saturday in Tregaron at Y Banc. These Guardian Folk Album winners have drawn attention for their inspired folk and ambient moves.

” Echoing rain blends with shuddering drones and lyrics…. Post-rock and ambient fans will relish the shape-shifting textures… Gathercole’s voice is featherlight and meaningful, recalling Vashti Bunyan and late 60s private-press folk”
