The Fence Collective featuring HMS Ginafore, King Creosote & Pip Dylan [+]

Next Monday, 16th February – Tickets £12.00

fencecollective.jpg

The sleepy fishing-village of Anstruther, in Scotland’s East Neuk of Fife, is home to FENCE RECORDS – a micro-indie music label, with a resolute D.I.Y. work ethic, and healthy assortment of musical-styles/facial-hair. The label’s output is reserved exclusively for members of THE FENCE COLLECTIVE – a loose-knit amalgam of singer-songwriters, musicians, bands and electronic artists, who collaborate with one another on record, as well as on stage. Although their music isn’t strictly ‘folk’ in the traditional sense, the Collective’s tendency to hand-down and share songs with one another is very much in the folk spirit. Following the example set by label/collective founder, Kenny Anderson (aka KING CREOSOTE), prolificacy is encouraged and ego is wrist-slapped – with most Collective members choosing to hide behind a pseudonym (as well as substantial beard growth).
