On 25th Ingrid Plum releases her debut album Plangent. Where her earlier work was based around vocal interpretations of traditional and modern folk songs, sung solo with a knack for bringing a whole room to hushed awe, her first full length introduces instrumentation and other musicians adding to the mix.
The launch of the album takes place tomorrow at St Andrews Church on Waterloo street and will be the only performance where most of those who contributed to the record will be joining Ingrid on stage. These include Rachel Dey (Do you Feel What I Feel Deer, Restlesslist, Milk & Biscuits), Al Strachan (Sons of Noel & Adrian, Crayola Lectern) and Tim Cottrell (Das Fenster). Support comes in the form of folk songs from Jo Burke and poetry from Gary Goodman.
Here’s a taster of what you can expect – the video for Do Not Come Into Darkness – produced in characteristic homespun style. If you can’t make along tomorrow, Ingrid will embarking on a headline tour in the spring.
