Event Details

The five-piece, prog folk rock Kindred Spirit Band will be weaving thrilling lead electric guitar and flute / sax with “perceptive and intriguing” song-writing, driving rhythms and “haunting and bewitching” female vocals. They have been described as,

“One of the best folk rock acts in activity in the UK”, by Prog Rock and Prog Metal Zine

Their sound has been likened to Fleetwood Mac, the Moody Blues and Curved Air. They are most often found performing their own, powerful songs at music festivals and arts centres these days, for example they will be performing at the Exchange, Twickenham and Cambridge Rock Festival next year, so this gig at the Red Lion pub, Isleworth is a bit of a rarity, although the Red Lion is known for its excellent live music activity, with a cracking open mic on Wednesday evenings. Because the band are performing in more of a pub setting, they will include a few classic folk rock covers alongside their own songs tonight!

Entry is free for this pub gig, on Saturday 6th November. The band will be performing from 8.30pm, on the pub’s lovely little stage. The Red Lion pub can be found in Linkfield Rd., Isleworth, which is off the London Rd., between Hounslow and Brentford.

Kindred Spirit Band founder and driving force, Elaine Samuels, began performing solo in folk clubs at the age of only 13, getting a mention in the local press as “one to watch”! She has featured on television, radio and at countless festivals and venues. To quote Rosie Upton of the Bath Evening Chronicle,

“Elaine has a voice which can be both hauntingly beautiful & deeply emotional…it is her rich repertoire of perceptive, intriguing self penned songs combined with her guitar work which sets her apart”.

Elaine evolved the full Kindred Spirit Band band, notably performing at Guildford and Glastonbury Festivals and Liverpool’s famous Cavern Club. Recently released album, “Elemental”, is attracting attention while acclaim for previous album, “Phoenix Rising”, led to international album distribution and a feature in Prog Magazine, with Rachel Mann calling it,

“Folk rock meets classical with a scientific edge”.

The Kindred Spirit Band are Elaine Samuels (vocals / acoustic & electric guitar), Stevie Mitchell (flute / sax / vocals), Piers Hogg (electric guitar), Keith Buckman (bass guitar / bvs) and Aleem Saleh (drums).
