Daria Kulesh ~ May 6th

Daria Kulesh has been described by Mike Harding as “one of the finest voices and one of the most intriguing and interesting songwriters on the present folk scene”.

Entry is by £12 minimum donation (Cash or Card)


Her performances are refreshing and mesmerising, full of passion and magic. Mixing her Eastern roots with Western folk influences, she creates an original and exciting sound.

Daria’s debut release Eternal Child was described as “phenomenal”, her second album Long Lost Home has enjoyed rave reviews and multiple awards, including LCM Album of the Year, and her latest studio release Earthly Delights was named “one of the year’s finest albums” by Folk Radio UK.

Daria has toured extensively in the UK and Europe, sharing stories and songs that are deeply personal but feel universal and timeless. Every performance is an “emotional, compelling and uplifiting experience”, leaving the audiences “completely spellbound”.

Born in Russia but based in the UK for the last 15 years, she fearlessly explores her heritage and turbulent family history in Ingushetia (North Caucasus) with songs that “aren’t just sung, but lived”.
