Bird in the Belly are returning to Coventry for a beautiful evening of folk music at Coventry Cathedral and as part of their tour, they will be launching a new EP of original songs about Coventry’s food growing heritage commissioned by Food Union as part of the Green Futures program.

Bird in the Belly is a Brighton-based Folk group consisting of folk-duo Hickory Signals (Laura Ward and Adam Ronchetti), alt-folk singer-songwriter Ben Webb (Jinnwoo, Green Ribbons), and multi-instrumentalist and producer Tom Pryor. Together they collect little known and forgotten lyrics, poems and stories from around the UK, and set them to their own “hypnotically original compositions” (fRoots)..Their sound is raw and bare-boned with “distinctively contemporary and earthy vocalising” (R2 Magazine) – and harks back to the 1960’s Folk Revival sound. Their debut album ‘The Crowing’ (March 2018, GF*M Records) was met with critical acclaim, the Sunday Express giving the album 5/5 and calling it folk album of the year.

The group is back with their much anticipated second album Neighbours and Sisters released October 2019. The third album After the City was released 25 February 2022 to critical aclaim, with The Guardian & The Observer calling it “an album of well realised ambition”

Joining them will be The Ben Jennings Ensemble, a six piece band touring their new album ‘The Innocence of Perfection.’

The vinyl will be available to buy on the night.
