The stunning radiance of Naima Bock has entranced audiences across the UK and beyond, with a sound which captivates with its holistic and distinctly contemporary style. Bock brings a spellbindingly new aural landscape to the indie folk music scene thanks to delicate vocals and poetic lyrics, with shows that are often sold out to eager listeners, which makes her forthcoming gig at The Cumberland Arms on Sunday 23rd October an enticing one indeed.

Naima Bock is touring to promote her debut album, Giant Palm, which was composed in collaboration with producer and arranger Joel Burton and over 30 instrumentalists. Giant Palm weaves Bock’s Brazilian heritage with her passion for European folk music, combining the beauty of ancient melodies with modern, electro sounds.

Joining Bock for the evening is Junior Brother, nominee for 2019 RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards, for Best Folk Album, as well as indie folk artist Melanie Baker, a singer-songwriter who has formerly performed as a support musician for major pop artists such as Dodie and Maisie Peters. Expect a spectacular event of woozy energy, eclectic styles and undeniable musical mastership. 

Naima Bock, Junior Brother and Melanie Baker play The Cumberland Arms, Newcastle on Sunday 23rd October.
