East London five-piece band Stick In The Wheel, headed by singer Nicola Kearey, and guitarist/producer Ian Carter, released their second album Follow Them True in January to widespread critical acclaim.
Known for Kearey’s fierce, working-class delivery, this is music that's culturally and politically switched on. Widely commended for their timely appraisal of English Folk, Stick In The Wheel's skill in telling stories through song reconnects modern audiences to the past - drawing unexpected parallels between then and now. Their debut “From Here” (2015) was fRoots magazine Album of the Year and a MOJO Folk Album of the Year, with four BBC Folk Award nominations since their inception in 2013. <br><br>“Britain's most exciting new folk band”
