Folk rockers, Brighton-based Moulettes, are heading north for a gig at Clitheroe’s Grand Theatre tonight.

Moulettes’ charismatic brand of modern folk music –incorporating elements of prog and alternative rock, pop and classical - has won the band rave reviews.

The quintet will be playing tracks from their new album, Constellations, due to be released next spring.

Their new offering features collaborations with The Unthanks, Arthur ‘God of Hellfire’ Brown and Mystery Jets’ Blaine Harrison, a sure sign of the Moulettes’ rising credentials on the nu folk scene.

Ex-Moulette Ted Dwane, went on to join Mumford and Sons, and earlier this year they played dates with the band. Violinist Georgina has recorded and performed with Seasick Steve and bassoonist Ruth has recorded with Paul Heaton.

Tickets are £8 advance. 01200 421599.
